It's just a date
It's just a date

Baby boy’s due date has just about come and gone as I sit down to write this post, and it’s not looking like he’s going to be making an appearance anytime soon. Although Hannah and I are excited to bring our first son into the world, we’re not nearly in as much of a hurry […]

Thoughts on baby No. 2
Thoughts on baby No. 2

We’re down to the final week before the due date of our baby boy, and we’re starting to get a little anxious. Hannah knows from her experience with our first baby that she needs to find lots of things to keep herself busy with this final week. Lydia came five days late, and Hannah was […]

The bed and breakfast routine
The bed and breakfast routine

As a working father, I often worry about getting enough quality time with my 1-year-old daughter. I work roughly 50 hours a week from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. If you tack on commute time then it’s really more like 53 hours. (Yes, I realize that I probably don’t commute as much […]

What I didn't expect to be expecting while my wife was expecting
What I didn't expect to be expecting while my wife was expecting

When we found out that Hannah was pregnant for the first time, we instantly thought about all the cliché symptoms women experience when growing a baby. We expected her to get morning sickness, crave chocolate and ice cream all the time, and have to go to the bathroom 20 times a day. While she did […]

4 Pieces of advice for taking family photos
4 Pieces of advice for taking family photos

We live pretty close to our state capitol building, which is famous for the pathways lined with cherry blossoms that surround it. For a few short weeks in the spring (or less, depending on how crazy the weather gets), the walkways around the capitol are exploding with beautiful, pink and white blossoms. Since Hannah is […]

Babies raising babies: A birth story
Babies raising babies: A birth story

As Hannah continues to prepare for round two of childbirth, I thought it would be fitting to share a condensed version of Lydia’s birth story from almost a year and a half ago. Experiencing Lydia’s birth will forever be one of the most precious moments of my entire life, and was incredibly emotional and spiritual […]

Getting all emotional
Getting all emotional

As I promised I would in my last post, I bought Lydia a balloon this week after getting back from traveling to New York. Well, I would have bought it, but the kind grocery store employee thought Lydia was so cute that she said we could have it for free! (Hooray for nice people!) Quick […]

It's just good to be home
It's just good to be home

This last week at work has been rough. I usually manage to get most of my work done in time to leave the office by 6 every evening, but due to some changes at work, this week has required much more than my typical 10-hour days. Even on days that I know I’ll need to work late, […]

The first month of parenting as told by Google searches
The first month of parenting as told by Google searches

You can tell a lot about a person from their recent Google search history, and I’m willing to bet that new parents are some of Google’s most active users. My wife and I searched so many things in the first month of Lydia’s life that we probably bogged down the Wi-Fi for the rest of […]

Snapchat baby

As I mentioned in my post last week, although not without its challenges, I actually enjoyed the newborn phase. After publishing that post, Hannah and I spent some time reminiscing about what our lives were like while Lydia was still in what we called the “accessory phase” (aka the first few months when she slept […]

4 Reasons why I love the newborn stage
4 Reasons why I love the newborn stage

Before Lydia was born, it seemed like everyone Hannah and I talked to stressed all the things we wouldn’t be able to do once we had a baby. Comments like, “Say goodbye to your sleep!” and, “Forget about having time to yourself!” seemed to come up on a regular basis. I have always liked kids, […]

Jumping the gun on parenthood
Jumping the gun on parenthood

“Wait, is that one line or two? I can’t tell.” “I don’t know; there is definitely one line and maybe a faint second?” They say you’re supposed to let the pregnancy test sit for a few minutes before reading the results, but we were obviously too anxious to remember that. The first pink line appeared […]

Looking back
Looking back

It’s been nearly a year since I began writing about my experiences as an at-home dad expecting a newborn (for the third time) for Pregnancy & Newborn, and it’s been a blast. I’ve tried to enlighten you about life as an at-home dad. I’ve tried to inject some humor into it because if you can’t […]
