I’ve never been the type to embrace ‘the tears of joy’ concept, which is quite a shock given the fact that my farther wears his heart on his sleeve. Even Jill is quick to remind me that I’m probably the only groom that didn’t cry when he saw his bride for the first time in that white dress (even though she was certainly worthy of it). Shortly after celebrating our third wedding anniversary, however, Jill finally saw tears fall from my eyes as we welcomed our first child, Kyle Thomas Morrone, into the world on Thursday, September 6th, shortly after 12pm. Many of you have told me that this would be a life changing moment, one I would never forget and something I couldn’t even begin to comprehend until it had happened. Even though I’d heard it a million times, I still wasn’t ready for the sheer excitement, emotion and overwhelming happiness that came with seeing a healthy baby in his mother’s arms for the first time.
