Row row row your boat

For the first time tonight I not only heard Oliver sing but he was singing words. Hayley sang "Row row row your boat..." to him and he clearly joined in and sang "row row". My heart did the sort of flip I thought was only experienced by teenage first loves. It was simply the sweetest sound I have ever heard.

Fatherhood does this to me. It turns me into a soppy lump. But he is a joy and it's a privilege to be with him watching him grow day by day. And he really does seem to be a little bit different every day now.

When I met Hayley I thought I had met someone to enjoy every day with. I had no idea she would bring me another little person who also adds so much happiness to every single day. Talk about an unexpected bonus!
