Awww that is so sweet! I've never seen that before - they don't seem to do that in the hospital I gave birth in at least.

So very touching. Beautiful.

This is such a touching story and is very suitable for the past weeks events!

Sob! That's really special. Thanks for the story.

Really lovely. Thank you.

You really are going to have to stop doing this. I don't like having a cry with my morning coffee. Did they do that with the twins? The picture was great. Those little tiny feet....all drat, there I go crying again.

Awww! Must not shed tears at work, I'll lose manliness points...but awwwwww!

Snarkiness may be funnier, but I think that hearing about loss moves every parent to cherish the tiny feet that have stomped their giant imprints onto our hearts. Big sigh. Small tear. Well done.

Wow. If anybody reading this didn't feel your words go straight through them the way Kathryn's tiny feet touched your heart, then they need a serious attitude adjustment. Beautiful!

I love baby feet. That was a very sweet post and the picture at the end? Too cute.

New reader, love your blog and your sense of humor... i am so sorry for your friend's loss.

this is a beautiful post. absolutely beautiful.

Awesome shirt man! I wish I had one like that from each of my kids' births. I love it!

I love it! What a great way to remember the day your child was born. Kudos to that nurse, whoever she was, for doing this for you. Kathryn will love seeing it when she is older.

That is so cool! I wish that we had special moments like that for our deliveries. When our son was born at 35 weeks, I barely even got to touch him before they took him to the NICU. I wasn't even allowed to hold him until 9 days later when he was taken off the vent. Our girls were 31 weekers, I didn't even get to see them after their delivery because they had to be intubated and taken to the NICU right away. I did get to hold them 4 days later when they were taken off the vent.

My boyfriend asked me the "so, do you want to have kids" question about three weeks ago. That picture just answered the question for me emphatically: yes.

Great story. Maybe you should frame the shirt.

OMG, I think I need just one more baby. What's another after you have twins, right?

Beautiful post, exactly right in every way. I was just looking at a Lesbian Dad's newborn baby's feet the other day - they are impossibly small, and utterly perfect.

I think this is the cutest story and photo evr!
anyway, your entire blog is superfunny! i'm from belgium, have one 3 year old kid that's already quiet a energy bomb, can't imagine having 5! i wish you all the luck, and i'll keep coming to read your funny stories.
my site is cool too, if you have a spare minute, take a glance!


i'm sorry! it has to be 3 instead of 5 chldren hahaha.
bye! inge
by the way the twins looke adorable! i loved the pic with the anarchy shirt!

Beautiful story, thanks TheDad, you are the best.

What a sweet story and picture. :) My daughter was born a couple months early and we have her feet stamped into the journal I'd been keeping. It's hard to believe she was ever so tiny.

I've been lurking for months, but I had to comment here. This story made me cry, in the girly-I-cry-at-Hallmark-commercials-and-diaper-ads kind of way. It was beautiful, and I have to say, it's always breathtaking to hear sentiments like this from a father.

Beautiful story, and picture.
