Going to bed at 8:30 never sounded so good.

Somdays are just more tiring than others. And not for any real reason. Maybe we got up early, maybe we worked hard, or maybe we didn’t sleep good last night. All I know is when the baby goes down, it’s OK for dad to go to sleep too. That’s a perk of having a baby; in […]

Baby clothes sizes are worse than women’s clothes sizes.

I’m not sure who came up with the system for sizing up clothes but its pretty simple for men. We have S,M,L,XL,XXL and so on for shirts, and pants are based on your waist size and leg length. Simple. Women’s clothing is just a random number. As if size 16 pants means anything logical. Plus […]

When do babies sleep through the night?

I think all new parents want to know when their babies will sleep through the night. Our Lily does a pretty good job some nights, and others not so much. She’s gotten back into the waking up in the middle of the night to feed. This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense when she’s […]

Can a baby go swimming in the pool?

We are headed to a hotel in the upcoming weeks and everyone wants to take the baby swimming, but is that ok? How old do they have to be before they can hop into the pool? Obviously they can’t go underwater or be unsupervised, but can they just sit in dads arms and kick the […]

Why kids are worth having.

Have you ever wondered why some people have kids? Well Jason Flom wrote a humorous post titled “13 Reasons Having Kids is Worth It!” and it’s worth checking out. My favorite is #9. After eating cereal on the couch while watching Saturday morning cartoons (and waxing about how much better they were when you were […]

Soothie pacifiers worked when others didn’t.

When we first had our baby we went back and forth on pacifiers. Some advice we got was that they are not good. Kids have thumbs and they should suck on them. Others said they are lifesavers. So we decided that we’d needed to have one on hand just in case. Well, when the night came that […]

Why do babies sleep so soundly that you can’t tell if they are breathing?!

Have you ever had this issue? You put your baby down and when you check back a little later, they’re so sound asleep that you start to wonder if they’re breathing? Then you freak out because you can’t tell. But you don’t want to wake them because then they’ll be up and you want them […]

Five Months

It’s amazing that I’ve been a dad for 5 months now. I’ve been meaning to start a blog to keep track of what’s been happening, what I’ve learned and maybe spread a bit of knowledge. So this is it! 🙂 More posts, insight and info coming soon.

Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours

We hope that your holiday season is happy and bright. May you enjoy your family, friends and all that life has to offer. I know that this year is special for Christi and I as it’s Lily’s first Christmas. I think she has more gifts than the wife and I combined and it’ll be exciting […]

It’s Apparent I’m A Parent.

The other day the wife and I were out with Lily when we had to stop and change her in the car. We didn’t have any issue changing her but when I realized that my cup holders were turning into dirty diaper holders, we couldn’t help but laugh. I’m pretty sure this is not what […]
