When I go to pick the girl up from daycare they typically have her some water sitting out in one of her cups for her to drink. Then when I drop her off in the morning they sometimes have milk ready for them to drink.
You would think it was the most amazing, fantastic, [...]
The girl has always been a little on the small side. As a result she took a little less formula (yes she was a formula baby) than average, mostly because she didn’t have anywhere to put anymore. We began to switch her to regular milk after her first birthday. During the same time we started [...]
Thanks to everyone who came out this past weekend and made the girl’s party a success. She was seriously so wired and excited from the party that she didn’t go to sleep until an hour and a half after her normal bed time. Grant it part of it might have been the obscene amount of [...]
When I started this little blog over 2 years ago I had one key rule about the content. No parenting advice. There are thousands of those things out there, and quite frankly most of them are garbage. I instead chose to focus on seeing things through my point of view and sharing with you a [...]
The girl’s first birthday is just a little more than 3 weeks away. In the middle of planning a party we have to find the perfect gift for our girl. This is one of the harder birthdays to buy for I hear because you are torn between something practical and something she may or [...]
Ava is almost a year old. 11 months today actually. Over the last year you all who are connected to the mom and me have loved pretty much anything we have put out about the girl. Which, let’s be honest, we make amazingly beautiful babies together. We actually have been told that by complete strangers, [...]
I believe, at least in the south, every dad dreams to some extent of their kids growing up to be sports stars. I have no clue why this is, most truly exceptional athletes I have met in my life are complete a-holes**, which is not something I want any kid of mine to be known [...]
Usually I keep all the sappy junk away from this little space. Truth be told I don’t think in sappy terms most of the time, so that is probably half the reason. But today is Valentine’s day. So either like it or get over it.
There is this magical way of forgetting the way things [...]
There is a little irony in the way things turn out. When the baby girl was still fresh from the baby factory every time we would take her clothes off (bath, diaper change, volcanic eruption) she would scream and cry as if she had been neglected in a dark cave after the apocalypse for a [...]
It was inevitable.
With all of the moving and bouncing around the girl does it was only a matter of time before she hit something. I was just desperately hoping it was not on my watch that she did it.
There have been a few times when she has fallen back too hard and [...]
