My daughter Hilda

Two days ago, I became a father. It was the happiest day of my life.

Here is a series of pictures:

Wonderful!!!!!!

I wish you your lovely bride and your beautiful baby girl all the best.
The photos look great, but I love the last one in which your wife kisses your baby.

Beautiful, beautiful images - I agree with Raid that the last is the best of the set.

Best wishes and hope for the future to mother and daughter, and you too.

Thanks for sharing some of your life here.

Congratulations!

The happiest day of my life was witnessing my daughter's birth. The high from the moment was intense and lasted quite a while. The memory is strong and even though she is now 35 it was just the other day I was cradling her in my arms.

Enjoy every moment!

wonderful photos, Johan. My best wishes to you both. My daughters are now 17 and 14, but it seems such a short time ago I watched them come into the world.

She is a beautiful newborn!

Lovely images. A lifetime of adventure awaits the whole family. Enjoy it. My daughter is 24 and I have to agree with all those fathers above talking about their daughters.

Add me to the two-daughters set (happily, I might add).

I am going to repeat that quote to my two, they will have a big laugh!

Congratulations to you and Mom, and welcome Hilda! Almost 26 years ago I was in your shoes. +1 to what Johnmcd said. Enjoy every moment, because they grow up fast.

No kidding, my oldest starts college next Fall, seems like yesterday I was feeding her in the high chair. ;-(

The new dad will be too busy to think about treasuring each moment, but I guarantee a few of them will stick.

Good time to put John Mayer's "Fathers be good to your daughters" on your playlist--especially the one you listen to when you're at the changing table at 3am. I'm very happy in my daughter, now 24, who has always radiated the love and kindness and humor we shared with her since the first breath.

In fact I just found the poem I wrote for her 24 years ago, courtesy of Google Books: easiest to read it though by googling "Robert Hill Long, Sarah 4:30 a.m." And scrolling down. A good poem for an infant daughter if I say so myself.

Enjoy your new life. The heart grows wider and deeper in it.

Congratulations to you and your wife. My first baby was my daughter, and she's still, at 43, the apple of my eye! Father-daughter bond is forever.

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. I will miss the photos of your pregnant wife in the gallery, though, they were among my favorites.

My two-year old son is toppling a tower of blocks as I type. These are amazing days, minutes, moments for you right now--I know the feeling. Your life just changed in wonderful ways!

Congratulations to you and your family!

Don't blink... every time you do they change. I am still trying to figure out how my 3 1/2 year old got so big and smart... and his little brother is changing just as fast.

Lovely pictures by the way.

Wonderful photos here; congratulations Johan! I hope and trust that parenthood is agree with you and mum. I am sitting here waiting for my 2 1/2 year old daughter to wake up from her nap so we can go for a bike ride right now. Daughters make life so much better. My wife is currently pregnant with our second (a boy, due mid August- just around the time Violet turns three); I will let you know how life is with two, but I expect that aside from the exhaustion, things will just be even better. Fond wishes to you all!

Mudride - I am a bit late to the party here, but I share everyone's celebratory mood and want to congratulate you also. Lucky man to have those two beautiful girls in your new family. I have only one daughter and two sons buy my pleasure multiplied when each brought a dear spouse into the family and - lo and behold - I now have six kids!!! and 4 grandkids. My cup runneth over.
