Becoming Daddy


On Thursday August 7th 2014, my life was changed forever with the birth of my daughter Violet.

Violet was born at 3:30AM on Thursday VIA a C-Section. During her first few hours of life Violet had what the hospital calls a “spell” which basically means she stopped breathing in her sleep, and for the first time ever, I felt what every parent feels when something scary happens to their child.

I put on a brave face for everyone, but inside I was terrified of what could possibly happen to her when these “spells” occurred.

In the end, our little Violet was just fine and has been home with us for a couple of weeks now. She’s had two follow up appointments with my family doctor and is doing very well.

I’m really enjoying being a daddy and watching my little girl grow bigger and stronger every day! She’s the best thing I’ve ever played a part in creating in my life and she could not be more perfect if she tried!

Our friends and family have been amazing and incredibly supportive! We love you all!

    We knew you were trying to put on a brave front!! Olivier your not! She is a beautiful little girl and let’s be honest she is lucky to have you for a dad. That is until she hits her teens and boys start to come calling!!
