Not immediately, but not three months either. Let’s call that a win and move forward, shall we? We shall. Addison turned six months old this month and has changed, and grown, and learned so much that I’m constantly left in disbelief. Every little thing she does amazes me, even though she can’t wipe her own butt, Continue reading “Missed. Loved. Learned.”
Three months?!? I haven’t posted anything on this page in three whole months! Lazy! The exclamation points are probably unnecessary as it doesn’t come as a shock to me (or likely any other parent) that I’ve been unsuccessful in my few attempts to find the time to write here. The little bit of free time I’ve had over the last few months has been consumed with getting ready for the holidays, napping, and planning out activities during any and all future free time. Sure, I’ve still found enough free time to binge watch Netflix regularly…going forward I’m going to make a real effort to spend less time in front of the TV and more time reading and writing. Until the month before the final season of Game of Thrones is scheduled to air, at which point it’ll obviously be time to re-watch all previous seasons for the third time. My wife is a lucky gal. I’ll have to remind her of that tonight.

I realized in reading previous posts I can only refer to her as ‘baby’ or ‘baby girl’ so many times before it becomes annoying. I’m sure I already exceeded however many times that is.)
Where was I?
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”
– Dr. Seuss
It’s truly mind blowing how fast time flies when you’re changing diapers. Continue reading ““Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.””
In less than a week my baby will be one month old and I’ll be back to work. It seems crazy that an entire month of being off from work is already coming to an end, but even more crazy that my little girl isn’t even a month old yet. Continue reading “Popping Bottles”
150 diapers. That’s how many diapers I estimate we’ve used in the last 13 days. Continue reading “150 Diapers and Counting…”
Tonight is the second night our sweet, stubborn, beautiful four-day old, baby girl is sleeping in our home. I find myself much more confident than our first night at home. Don’t get me wrong I’m still terrified, about EVERYTHING: Continue reading “What’s that smell? Her diaper or me?”
When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose! – Harry Potter
That quote may be a **little** dramatic, but have you ever seen two full grown humans (muggles) pushing as hard as they can Continue reading ““When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose!””
