Life is what happens when you are too busy making plans.
Today was the day.
As we pulled in the Gemelli Hospital’s parking today, I had this kind of weird feeling. I was supposed to come here today, but not with you sleeping in the car seat next to me.
You were supposed to come into this world today. The 30th of September 2017 in Rome, Italy. The son of a Romanian mother and an Italian father, conceived in Morocco.
You decided instead that you could not wait any longer and came out a bit earlier. I am probably the happiest that you chose to show up 9 days earlier. I honestly do not think there is anyone happier about it than I am.
I do miss feeling you inside me, feeling your every move and your every hickup, but boy, aren’t you so damn wonderful? With your little face, your gorgeous hair, your amazing smell and tiny hands with long fingers grabbing me. I know that every parent feels like their kid is the best or the most beautiful or perfect and so on. I don’t know that you are perfect for the world, but for me you are. And I cannot help but feel proud of ourselves like ‘we made this little thing and he is gorgeous’.
I tried imagining how you would look like and I even dreamt you twice during the pregnancy, but I didn’t even come close to how you actually look and are like in real life. You are the jolliest little fellow that I have ever met, even when you want to eat for more than one hour straight. But I love you already so much. Most probably more than from here to the Moon and back and I cannot imagine my life without you anymore. The same as I cannot imagine my life with you older. I can only see you in the now, but I know that we are going to have awesome adventures in the future and I cannot wait to show you this amazing, crazy and beautiful world we life in.
Everyone said it will be difficult and tough but all I can see now is the love and the wonderfulness of it. It might be still early but I don’t think I’ve ever been this in love before.
Thank you for becoming a part of our lives and changing it in a way that I could not have imagined before.
