Micaela Katarzyna Gołonkiewicz

So it's been 2 months since my world changed. My daughter, love of life arrived on the 1st of May at 20:48. Never have I seen a more beautiful girl, and I am not just saying that.
But it's not been all sunshine and rainbows, having a baby is by far the most taxing task ever. And the responsibility is incredible. But when ever I see her face and her smile it makes everything worthwhile.
Now barely 2 months old, my little angel has started growing teeth, which is not some rare genetic disorder, but its not common. And after alittle research it turns out babies who develop this fast are normally exceptional, have a higher IQ and are generally just awesome. As a nerd father this is like the greatest thing I could find out about my little nerd in the making.

Micaela Katarzyna Peter..

So here i am again, but this time i am a changed man. I finally got to see my baby's face for the first time, and did it do a number on me. My wife and i made a bet when we just found out we were pregnant, i wanted a boy and she said i was getting a girl. Now me being me, i went through every single wives tale you could think of, trying to find out what sex we had, and also trying to get the upper hand in the bet. I went from the spinning ring, to the size of the tummy, even
secretly forcing my wife to only sleep on her right side hoping the inter-net was truthful about it altering the baby's sex.
Well guess what, its a girl. Either i somehow screwed up everything, or i inadvertedly made the sex a girls (maybe some pissed off woman lied saying do this for a boy knowing fully well it was for girls) or maybe its all bullshit. I think its the latter. But here is the catch, i wanted a boy just to carry out my legacy in name, thats it. I dont prefer bpys to girls, i think they are both equal.
But that afternoon we went for a scan, i felt it in the pit of my stomach i wasnt getting a boy, and then i saw her face. WOW! Now i am a proud old fashioned man, i dont cry, i grit my teeth and say mush. But when i saw her face i broke down smiling, i have never seen a more beautiful face ever. And for the life of i couldnt think why i wanted a boy so much when i saw her. She is perfect.
I know every parent says their baby is beautiful but this isnt that, she is gorgeous, she down right is, she looks like me too, i was filled with pride and a love i cant explain. I dont think a boy would have made me so soft in the heart. And all i could do when i saw her face was whisper "daddy's little girl"
I can see the future, she is going to ruin me, have me wrapped around her pinky and be spoilt as ever, i can see that and i know it. But she is my little girl, and i will be damned if i didnt treat her as the most important girl alive. My wife made things worse for me by naming her after me, now i have my legacy and an angel coming into this world in May. And her name is Micaela Katarzyna.
Ever since i saw that gorgeous face alot has changed in me, i worry more about making sure this home is perfect for her, i worry if i will be able to take care of her the way she should be, but mostly i worry about keeping her safe. I thought i was obessesive about my gaming and down right protective, but now nothing else seems as important than my little girl. I cant wait to meet her, i cant wait to show her off, and teach her all of daddy's little obessesions. I am not worried about sports or anything of the sort but if she wanted to play, she has one helluva kick.
The only thing i can say now, and i say it with a frown on my face and clenched teeth. I feel sorry for the boy that hurts my little angel, or makes the mistake of breaking her heart. Thats the day we will find out how much of a serial killer i really am..

p.s. I wonder how long it takes to get a shotgun in South Africa?
