Bubs and mum are doing well and the midwives are awesome.

He needed a little topping up of formula for feed today.  Dad (me!), gave him his first bottle feed.

It’s a good feeling having him in my arms while he sucks away at the bottle.

His eyes are open and he’s looking directly at me.  I read up on newborns last night – they can recognize shapes and faces at about 8-12 inches away but they can’t really focus on anything yet.

Does this feel real or do I feel like a dad yet?  Dunno.  I don’t really know what a dad is meant to feel like.
