  1. For some reason, this gave me an image of a delivery room. Doctor says to the shocked and stunned father, “Dad?” In that moment the world opens and the world becomes something new and brighter. The father’s eyes never leaving that baby as they clean it nearby then as it’s handed back to the mother. She holds it to her chest and whispers “I love you” into the delicate face of her newborn. Father, having barely blinked since the baby has come into the open world, says back to her, “I love you too.” It is in response to the words he hears, but more than that, he has never loved anything as much as he loves that baby – and everything on Earth including himself and wife, are both relegated to an “also.” He loves them “too.” He just loves the baby most of all.
