Get all the rest you can. As I type this, I've slept three hours and the baby is still crying, I'm just ignoring her for the moment.

BE VERY AFRAID
Look at what type of world you are bringing her into. Work to make it better-you'll be glad you.

Congrats! and good luck! : - )
LOL, I have a 18 year old daughter a son that will turn 7 in December and one that will be 4 in January. Besides all the fun in making them, there is great fun to be had in raising them.
Girls are more difficult than boys, not being sexist, for fathers it is simply fact. (Especially when they are older)
My favorite times have to be between the ages of 3 and 6. The observations that kids make and the stuff taht comes out of their mouths are priceless.
Hang on to every "moment" that comes to you. It's awesome!

First,I am a new father myself.We watched our little ball of wonder come into this world almost two years ago(there are pics in my profile).My wife always said I was sorta a mans man,I like to hunt and fish watch football and cuss kinda guy.I grew up in a family of men.My father has 6 brothers and all their kids (with the exception of one)were boys.I have 23 cousins lol and 22 of them are boys.The point of all that is I was scared to death of having a little girl,I had never really had any interaction with little girls(none in my fam)and was unsure of how I was gonna handle it..........I was scared! The second she was born all that scared/lost feeling went away.The second you become a parent you will grow up in a mighty way right there in the delivery room.The human instinct to protect and love your offspring will get you through alot in the beginning.
Second-You won't sleep much for a few weeks/months.All kids are different and they all respond differently.NO ONE CAN TELL YOU HOW TO RAISE YOUR KIDS,NO ONE CAN GIVE YOU ADVICE HERE! One of the things I hated the most in the first year were all the people who thought they new how to raise my daughter better than I did.The coolest thing about being a father to me was watching her personality develope.I raise my daughter off of that personality(in other words I know her and I know what works).You will find what works for you and your daughter,no one can tell you that.
Third-If I was gonna give advice this would be it lol.
Ten Simple Rules for
Dating My Daughter
Some thoughtful information for those who ARE daughters, WERE daughters, HAVE daughters, INTEND TO HAVE daughters, or INTEND TO DATE a daughter.
If you pull into my driveway and honk, you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate: when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
In order for us to get to know each other, you may think we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on his subject is "early."
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my Daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided. Movies, which feature chainsaws, are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a pot-bellied, balding, middle-aged, dim-witted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy outside of Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

Baby girls will melt you and wrap you around their microscopic little fingers! My advice is to make rituals with them.. Read books lots. Put them to bed every night. Always tell them you love them.
Take them with you to the store when you don't have to. Take her to get pancakes or donuts on saturday morning "Daddy Dates". And if you are up to it have your wife put the biggest bows possible in her hair. Talk to her like an adult(one you like) and give her choices and consequences. My favorite is you can have one candy now or two candies later. She still hasnt decided that delayed gratification is worth it!

I have two kids, one 5yr old boy and a 1 1/2 year old girl.
It is the perfect balance, and I suggest everyone who only has one kid to try for another one, preferably of the opposite sex as the first. (if this does not work, and you get the same sex, you may start a buy/sell/trade forum on the tank and I'm sure you'll find a fellow tanker willing to trade you a wave 2 baby boy/girl for yours).
I play with my boy all day and buy him all the toys, but the girl is the joy of my life.
She also runs my life. She's 1yrs old, and she tells me to "sid down" or "ged-OUT" and blames her farts on me or smacks me in the face and all she has to do is smile and put her head on my shoulder and she's the world's most perfect princess.
I've even been known to let her steal one of my "joe-joes" just to watch her kiss and cuddle them to her delight. (i only let her do that to Serpentor or the Fang pilot, of course)
Be prepared for your little princess to think she's the Queen of the castle...and enjoy it while you can.
