Right then and there I said I thought he should wait to have his own first child be the first baby he ever held. If he made it 25 years without ever holding a baby, there was no need to not save that special experience. His sister had her first baby almost two years ago, and Kit waited to hold her until she was a few months old.
That said, last night was one of the most beautiful moments in the history of our relationship. Although Kit was super apprehensive (can you say, "deer in headlights?"), we convinced him (quite easily) to hold his beautiful baby girl. Here's the special moment captured on video and in pictures.

Sleeping safely in her daddy's arms. She was smitten immediately and completely peaceful. The whole time.
