Being A Dad – I’m A Walking Cliché

I’m a cliché and I’m not afraid to admit it. Brace yourself, this post is going to be filled with things you’ve read, heard and for parents – all felt before. It’s something I’m ok with. You know that thing parents say about how they love their children more and … Continue reading

Being A Dad – #Lukecation

It’s all over. #Lukecation, that is. My three week “vacation” with Lucas is now over, and what a break it was. In all honesty, there weren’t a lot of real downtime moments as it turns out, caring for an infant is a lot of work. (I’m kidding, as I of … Continue reading

Being A Dad – 2 Months In

My son is 2 months old? How is that possible?! Unreal. We’ve witnessed his amazing growth (6 lbs 5 oz, 19.25″ at birth to 11lbs 5 oz. and 23″ at six weeks), but also his incredible change in alertness. But, let’s back up a bit first. Lucas Charles was born … Continue reading

Becoming A Dad – Complete

Pregnancy is one of the greatest tests of patience. It’s an incredibly long journey with a remarkably hard job at the end. (I don’t envy women, they’ve got it really freaking hard!)

One of the most common discussions is whether or not that baby is listening! As the baby develops, at this time of pregnancy, can baby … Continue reading

Becoming A Dad – The 4th Month and Money

After the first 12 weeks were over and fairly uneventful (other than our appointments and telling family), we were able to finally tell our friends! This was a lot of fun to share with our core group of friends in Denver. Elizabeth also loved being able to call her best … Continue reading

Becoming A Dad – The First 12 Weeks

As I stated in my introduction, I’ve been ready to be a father for about a year. I don’t really think anyone can really be ready, but they can be mentally prepared to accept the future challenges of being a parent. Having had a spectacular mother and father as examples … Continue reading

Becoming A Dad – Introduction

For the foreseeable future, I’m going to do some non-entertainment writing. My wife, Elizabeth, and I are going to have a baby! Due on June 29, 2014, Baby Peanut, as it will henceforth be known, will be our first child. There are countless books and blogs out there for women … Continue reading
