Review:TidalDragon says:
It was obvious from the story that you put a lot of effort into addressing all the aspects of the childbirth from family to friends to the joy and concerns of the new parents.

I also really appreciated how you mixed in seriousness with tenderness and humor in varying measures so that no single emotion dominated. I think that is a really crucial aspect of the birth of a couple's first child to capture because the thoughts and feelings really do shift a lot from moment to moment.

I did think Harry was a little bit heavy at points talking to his son in terms of what even a first-time father would share, but it all came around in the end and I thought you did a good job keeping all the canon players in character.

Thanks for sharing this!

Author's Response: Hi!

I did put quite a bit of effort into it. I had some of my own experiences with the birth of my sons to draw on, which helped a lot I think. Being a new parent is like getting hit with a tidal wave of different emotions.

I think it always helps to mix in some situationally-appropriate humor into a story, no matter how serious the subject matter. To want to laugh is human.

Harry was feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all, which can make a person rather introspective. During his conversation with James, he was often talking as much to himself as to James.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
