That Moment When You Became a Parent {Pampers Giveaway}

As a Pampers Baby Board Member, a sample was received to facilitate this review.  All opinions remain 100% mine.

After six month of trying to get pregnant with our first child, my husband and I could not have been more thrilled to learn we were expecting a baby in February 2005.  Once the initial excitement began to wear off, anxiety set in.

We were having a baby.  But more importantly, the baby was having us.

Would we know what to do?  What do we feed her?  How do we change a diaper?  What if she gets sick?  Getting answers to one question only brought up more questions.  But when the big day arrived and Lily Catherine entered the world on January 31, 2005, our anxiety disappeared and was replaced with complete unconditional love and a huge sense of protection over our new little miracle.

Lily spent the first two nights in the neonatal ICU and because I was extremely anemic, I had a hard time visiting.  But my husband was a rock.  Not only did he take care of me, but watched over Lily with such compassion, love and concern that there was no doubt in my mind that he had become a Father in every sense of the word.

Pampers recognizes the very important role that dads play in your little miracles’ lives each and every day and is taking time to celebrate Dad for Father’s Day with a very special giveaway right here on Experimental Mommy.  I would love to hear all about those very special moments when you first realized that your partner (and/or YOU) had become a Father.  Enter to win this prize pack below:
