    My daughter was born this morning, first child, people kept telling me that the moment you set eyes on them was pretty intense. Jesus, that was an understatement ! I was in bits – she is so beautiful and lovely and I just melted. Life changed today for me, I may lose some stuff but I’m sure I will gain a hell of a lot more.

    That’s all – im tired and I have taken beer.

    Congratulations man!

    It keeps getting better (well, i can say that up till 2.5 years, no experience past that!) but for a sheer flood of emotion you’re not going to better that.

    Congrats chap, life will never be the same again, enjoy.

    Congrats! I took beer on both occasions, now go and get 4 hours uninterrupted sleep and hold onto the memory when you wake

    Congratulations.

    You’ll soon get over it with the constant lack of sleep, riding time and money. Enjoy. πŸ˜€

    Get yourself some rest. You’ll need it. Have you ever fallen asleep at your desk before?

    God yes , well known for desk sleeping already.
    Kryton-truth behold, some close friends lost their wee girl during birth last year. We saw what that did to them and those that love them. For that I am selfishly eternally thankful that our little cracker is safe and I will always remember what could have been for Alice.

    Absolutely!

    Congratulations! It’s ace, isn’t it? ?

    There are a fair few of us on here a couple of months ahead of you on this one, so if there’s any advice, tips or anything you need, you know where to come!

    Now, try and get some sleep! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations to you and mrs nzcol, good work πŸ™‚

    11 months in here and, despite being more tired than I think I’ve ever been, having a little boy is still brilliant. Like many others will be sure to advise… get some sleep while you can!

    Wonderful! Congrats!

    Be prepared for more “dusty eye” moments, having a kid (3 of them now) has turned me into a big Jessie.

    Try singing “Wires” by Athlete now. Impossible without breaking down into sobbing tears. 😳

    Great stuff sir, all love from the BSN loons here to you guys.

    Congratulations, it was like hitting a wall of emotion for me as well.

    The first compilation slideshow I did had “this is the one” by the Stone Roses as the soundtrack, whenever I hear it I get all chocked up. It’s a bit embarrasing when I go to Old Trafford (it’s the song that United always come out to) I should have thought that one through!

    Stoner Jr was 8 weeks premature so his first month was spent in hospital and his first week or two in NeoN ICU – plumbed into machines that go “ping”.

    Nice one! Tang jnr #3 should have been born today! 6 weeks early in the end. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like the first flush of love when you meet your new child. Keep spoiling mrs nz as let’s face it they deserve it!!

    My ‘dusty tune’ is Moon River. Sang it to my little girl as I carried her around the ward for a few hours on the first night.

    “Two dreamers, off to see the world, there’s such a lot of world to see…”

    Gets me every time.

    Congrats OP!

    wwaswas speaks the truth!

    Enjoy the little baby phase too. Blobby jr is starting to assert his independence. Any outside interference and he really kicks off. Nappy changes are a major trauma! Can’t help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it all πŸ™‚

    I struggle with long sentences after OP
    Nice words brought it all back for me as to what it was to stare at them for the first time in sheer wonderment and full of love [ duusty in here this morning just thinking about it]
    A feeling you can never describe to anyone cherish it as the hard work grinds you down πŸ˜‰
