Some Things Aren't Theoretical: A Baby Announcement

You can talk about God and faith and creativity in theoretical terms.But then you behold your newborn baby and all things theoretical go out the window.


Oh, and then you see your firstborn daughter holding your new infant daughter and suddenly you realize how unprepared and ill equipped you are to be a father. And in that same moment, you understand nothing will get in the way of being Daddy above all else.

Welcome to the world, Estelle Rennae Mahlstadt. You are loved more than you know.
