Week 1 day 1 at home

It’s 2 am I have gotten maybe three hours of sleep since my wife went into labor early Wednesday morning.  My daughter is finally asleep in my arms as I am catching up on listening to the Daily Audio Bible from this week. We’re trying to give my wife some sleep as she is recovering from a c-section and attempting to breastfeed. She is an amazing woman and I am blessed to have her as my wife. My daughter just hasn’t gotten used to her cradle yet. She only sleeps in my wife or my arms today.  She was able to sleep in the bassinet in the hospital.

On another day when I can think clearly I will write about my first day as a functional dad. It was an amazing and terrifying day all at once.

Right now I just want to sleep but can’t. It’s time for my wife and daughter to sleep. I don’t know when I will be able to get a full nights sleep again.

This is the verse from Wednesday. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭73:26‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
