I reckon this is the most difficult article for me to write. I don’t remember how many times I wrote it, how many times deleted and restarted. It is definitely not possible for one to put their love for their child into words. What could one write? “Aww, so sweet, so smart, so cute, he is my everything, I would do anything for him, my life is much more beautiful now, he is my miracle etc.” All of these fall short. His mother calls him “My honey pie, sweet muffin”. Calling him “Can” is not quite enough (Meanwhile, “Can” pronunciation in Turkish looks like John in English).
Can is with us since 1 September 2016. Thank God, he didn’t tire and upset us for now. On the contrary, he always put a smile on our faces whenever we looked at him. I think we only have one wish regarding him: always having a smile on his face.

We never shared Can’s photos till today. If you ask me the reason, I really don’t know. Maybe it was not the right time, maybe I might have wanted to have some more photos so that the story would take a good form. My friend Hasret shot our and Can’s photos on his birth day but I also shot a few photos. The photos in delivery room were shot by the hospital photographer but there was a commotion and I don’t know who he was. Nevertheless, he did a good job. After returning home, Basak and I have pressed the shutter whenever it occurred to us.
We always had Fujifilm X-pro2 and 23 mm at our hands. But we used Canon5d MarkIII on his birth day. The hospital photographer used Nikon D7000.
