4 Reasons why I love the newborn stage

22899186891_20f31eb337_o

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

“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

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

Foodie in the making

As planned, we introduced Austin to solid foods. Was it a success? Is it a complete and utter mess after he’s done eating? Is he upset when it’s gone? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding YES! We’ve

Introducing … food!

We haven’t begun giving Austin pureed human food yet, but we will soon. The reason being he’s been less and less tired around his bedtime of 7 o’clock. Linds will feed him, and he sits there, eyes open, staring at

Teething?

img_0139

I think Austin is teething, and he’s almost 5 months old! Fortunately, like Nolan and unlike Graham, he’s taking it all in stride. Watching him tongue his gums as the tooth emerges from his mouth like a worm out of the ground is kind of

Four-month sleep regression

img_0136

Myth: There’s no such thing as a sleep regression. Fact: The 4-month sleep regression is real. And it’s horrible! Austin was sleeping well, day (naps) and night. Key word: was. Then he turned 4 months old, and it’s been a roller coaster, mostly
