The Beginning

Expecting couples receive a ton of advice. Some solicited, mostly not. One common piece of advice is document EVERYTHING - take pictures, shoot video, and write down milestones.

I intended for this blog to be a journal of my son's first year, but underestimated just how boring newborn babies can be. Don't get me wrong, I love every day with children, but there are only so many stories you can tell about dirty diapers and your wife's belief that her nipples are literally being chewed off by our little miracle.

While failing as a daily journal, the blog has become something different. The stories and musing I share are less about the day-to-day experiences of being a father, and more about lessons and observations of fatherhood.

I hope they are as fun to read as they have been to write.
