I have now been a father for 14 days. Something that originally seemed daunting to me is now..I guess. Second nature. She is just a part of my life now. Aoife Rose, my daughter. The girl that eventually changed my life. I have transformed from the most laid back person ever to someone who worries almost constantly.
"She's quiet, I better give her a little wiggle to check if she's still breathing", "Do you think she is eating enough?", "Does every baby poo this much", "Am I holding her right" and my favourite one "I have done everything I can, why are you still crying". All the above is probably said or thought by me multiple time a day.
Saying all that I think I have taken to it pretty naturally. I had never held a baby before holding my daughter, something I feel is really pure and wonderful. Everything I do with Aoife. I will be doing it for the very first time.
The plan in the future is to use Giantbomb's blog feature as a kind of stream of consciousness. Something to look back on in the future. I aim to steer the subjects towards gaming where I can.
I also wonder, fellow parents on these here forums. How did your gaming habits change post child? Hopefully your answers will be a small widow into my future.
