Before Jon Longhi's daughter was born, he was very nervous at becoming a first-time father. But at 5 a.m in May of 1996, when his child came into the world with his distinctive hair color and family hairline, his life changed. He started noting small memorable moments – often humorous, sometimes fearful – in his daughter's own words, as time passed and she grew. In this joyous celebration of familial love, the special experience of becoming a dad is immediately accessible, and is a perfect gift for soon-to-be first-time fathers and dads everywhere.
