Is it Normal to Feel This Way About Diaper Changes?

So far being a Dad is not as tough as I thought it would be. Of course it has it’s ups, wheather it’s holding her, singing to her or just staring at her while she sleeps. We can’t forget about the downs, with lack of sleep, the fact it takes 3 hours to get ready to go out, the inability to eat dinner at the same time as Addison, and the countless loads of laundry, but it has all been very manageable. The one thing I thought that I would really struggle with was the dirty diapers. I never really spent any time with newborns or really young children, so I figured that it would be something that I would really dislike and struggle with. Well I was wrong. I never thought that I would say this but its pretty neat changing her.  In a weird way its a really strong bonding experience. If she is cooing, crying, screaming, peeing or pooping on me I still find myself with a huge grin on my face and an extra pep in my step. Who in their right mind would have thought that I would be more interested in signing the same 3 songs over and over to Kay Kay or speak in baby talk over Xbox 360 and watching sports. I’m sure that in a few months from now I may be pulling my hair out but for now I’m just going to soak it all in and enjoy the ride.
