Introducing Amory Yong
I'm proud to introduce Amory! The first-born of a new generation of Yongsters has arrived! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
As a 21st century dad, I'm very cognizant of images, captions & descriptions that could come back to haunt my child in the future. That's why it took me a while to figure out whether I should announce Amory's existence outside of closed circles. Well, I can't keep him under a tin foil hat all his life. Therefore, I will make an effort to avoid posting intimate pictures or embarrassing stories of him. I hope that my friends & family will do the same. However, I will share my pictures & my embarrassing moments. There have been plenty of those. Believe me. #FirstTimeDad 🙋🏽♂️
Just the other night in the wee hours of the morning, during my night shift. I stared intensely at him as he slept soundly in his cot after being fed. I didn't know if it was the sleep deprivation (honestly, I haven't had a full night's sleep in a loooooong while) or whether it was my paternal hormones kicking in, but I broke down into tears at how beautiful he was to me & how much love I felt for him. Anybody else experience this before, or am I just an emotional wreck? 😢
Fatherhood is a beautiful thing. I hope that I'll be a good father to you, Amory. I'm by no means a wealthy man, but I'll do my best to give you what you need to thrive in this brave new world.
Love, dad. 👨👦
