Levi Benjamin Matara-Ng

Posted on March 25, 2010


Hello, I hope you are all well. My brief hiatus from The Marching Jester has been a most refreshing one. I am the father of a gorgeous boy.

Levi Benjamin Matara-Ng was born via a caesarian birth on March 17 at 4.32pm. Our first child, our most beautiful child.

It truly has been a most wonderful and amazing week. I have so much to say and tell. I really do. Believe me when I say the last nine days have been dominated by fatigue, joy, pride, relief, realization, exhaustion, anguish, frustration and hope.

In that order. Count them.

Nine days and nine emotions.

Take my hand as I guide you through an astonishing journey that only a new father could tell.
