You never know when the absolute best day of your life is going to happen, but there are a few days that are supposed to be strong contenders for that title.
When I married Kara a little over nine years ago, I knew it was supposed to be one of the best days of my life, but I was not ready for just how incredible it would be! It was more than I could have hoped for, and more than I expected.
Five days ago, I witnessed the birth of my son Colton Mirko Goucher. I knew going in that this was going to be one of the most significant days of my life, but once again, the reality was so much more than I could have anticipated. The flood of emotions overwhelmed me. I did not know I could love someone I just met, so much! As I held Colt for the first time, I was engulfed with adoration and affection for my wife and my new son. It was an intensity of love I never want to forget and will use to fuel my desire to be the best father and husband I can be as we continue our lives together.
I wanted to share this short blog and a few photos, to share my excitement, and joy and to introduce you to my new son.
Everybody, this is Colton. Colton, this is everybody!
I love my dad!
My mom is so cool!
I am four days old in this one!
