Well take the bass fishing world by storm, he captioned a sweet Instagram video.When he made an emotional speech about having a preemieIve done all kinds of cool things as an actor. Ive jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebodys daddy, Pratt said in his speech at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies in 2014.Reflecting on his sons time in the NICU, he recalled,I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be and I just prayed that hed live long enough that I could keep them.When he talked about his unusually polite toddler Its super frustrating because youre like, Alright, now.

Its really cool. Those types of moments are the most meaningful. Its the little tiny life things. Being able to see that moment forces me to remember that that is the moment Im teaching my son to tie his tie. So much of this stuff that we do, youre never really present. Youre focusing on the next thing.When he set an example of giving backPratt often visits Childrens Hospitals and hospital NICUs to meet with patients.ICYMI: @prattprattpratt used "raptor whispering" skills to cheer up our patients. #AmazingKids http://t.co/QrToKVNy0Q pic.twitter.com/vDJgmadiwb Our Lady of the Lake (@TheLakeHealth) June 22, 2015 A post shared by Seattle Children's (@seattlechildrens) on Oct 11, 2016 at 9:07am PDT When he looked back on his sons first months.We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot. It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it. The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.When he struggled to discipline his son I take him into the other room, take a chair, face it into the corner and say, Youre in a time-out. Now I want you to sit here and think, Pratt told Conan while describing his response to a dinnertime tantrum. But as he and his wife continued eating, they noticed that the toddler seemed perfectly at ease, Pratt added, doing a hilarious impression of his sons content face.I was like, I dont think this seems like punishment to him.When he learned the use for babiesBlamed that last fart on my infant son and my wife, with a very concerned look on her face, asked me if I think he's sick. chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) September 20, 2012 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
