In a word - single. Single because no moment will ever define my wife and I any better. A 10 month journey that ends with the promise of a lifetime journey, our baby girl made us wait until the very end of a pregnancy devoted to preparing for her. When was this single moment? At 9:28am, of March 12th, 2012, Naomi Maya Ellison arrived weighing 7.6lbs and 18 inches in length. I knew it would be a moment we would never forget, but what I wasn't prepared for, was just how transcending an experience it would be. I never in my life felt more present. I never in my life felt more love. Humbling? Without question. Humbling because even though we don't understand what makes this magic happen, we inherit our natural place in the audience and experience magic performed so masterfully that for that moment in time, you are quite literally lifted out of this world.
My wife is my hero.
