I’m a Daddy?!?!?! Seriously? Me? Okay…

Posted by Kimball Roundy | Daddy,Marinda

So, it is a pretty crazy thought that has not really even sunk in yet… I am a Father! As of Sunday 5-31-09 at 2:34 PM I am officially a Father… What does that mean exactly?

The Most Technologically 5 Day Old Child Who Ever LivedI mean, just about any man can contribute one half of the required ingredients to make a baby; but does that make him a Father? Or better yet a “Daddy”?

I think you would agree with me that it most certainly does not. I think, in order to be given the Title of “Daddy” it must be bestowed upon you by the child.

I smile when I picture sweet Marinda and how excited she is when she comes running to me as I come home from work calling out “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy…”

That sacred title is one that is given in reward for a love for the child that can not be expressed in words, it is a love that can only be shown in actions.

I have never quite been able to imagine the love that I feel for my new child. The willingness that I feel to drop anything and everything for her, to make sure she is comforted… Cared for etc.

I was thinking over the last few days and then again earlier tonight that there is not anything in the world that I would not give up for her. As I walked through my garage, seeing my boat, nice cars, classic bronco, motorcycle etc. I thought to myself that these “things”, though they are useful, fun and exciting to have don’t hold a candle to the joy, love, excitement, commitment that I feel for Marinda.  I just can’t describe it.

My Beautiful New Daughter Marinda AnnetteSo as I embark on this new life journey, I am dedicated to do everything I can to earn that highest of titles. Move over Career, businesses, sports, recreation etc. Marinda is here and she is now my priority, my joy, my pain, my excitement, my love… My Life. (Of course I will love doing tons of fun things with her, teaching her sports and about business ;-)

So enjoy the pics (The one to the right is a pic of “The Most Technologically Savvy and Successful 5 day old Internet Marketer who has ever lived ;-) I mean, how many people can claim to have held a computer mouse and messed around with a computer when they were just 5 days old… She has it in her blood ;-)

There are also some cute videos of my sweet little Marinda below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed shooting them (Not possible by the way but you can try)

And I hope you like hearing about her, because there will be a lot more where this came from :) She will for sure be the topic of many a post here on my blog and many a pic/comment/tweet/update/video etc on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc.


What an Angel… Love Her

    Hey Nice one Kimball, she’s beautiful!

    Our second child was due on the 31st, but she’s must be having too much fun in her mums tum to come out yet, going to have to start some ‘old wive’s tales’ to get it to show it’s face, you know, Castor oil, hot curry, sex….

    Oh well it’s a dirty job but someone’s gotta do it! We fathers do have to go through the mill don’t we?

    Congratulations mate, you’re in for some fun now, my first daughter, Olivia is now heading towards 3yrs, she’s great fun, beautiful, and confident, a bit too much sometimes, but i wouldn’t have changed the last 3 years for all the money on the internet!

    Your words are so true! NOBODY can understand the depth of love a parent feels for a child, until they are a parent. She’s beautiful, and it’s going to be fun watching you be a Daddy to this little girl, and your future children :-)

    Awesome. Very very true my brother. Nothing better than having them say “DADDY!” Thanks for the powerful post!
