A note from our blogger/daddy…

It has been a while since I have posted anything on this blog.
The most important reason and also not a reason, has been my lack of time.
‘Well then you are bad at organizing.’ You might say.
And you are right.
Since I started at my new job I have had much less free time than before.
And now I really need to organize my time well.

Super cool baby hack video

It is time for a new baby video.

Life hacks are hot.

Simple solutions to sometimes complex matters.

Being a daddy is pretty complex. Well, for me it is.

So I jumped on the internet, straight to youtube to search for a life hack with baby video or a baby hack video.

After a 5 second search, I think it took me five seconds to type ‘baby hack’ and press enter, I found this video about baby hacks on youtube.

Tinkle, Tinkle, Little Star | The story about baby pee

It took him 220 days, but he finally succeeded last night.

Seven months and six days he had been waiting for this moment, his moment.

60% of a year he had been planning.

At least, that is wat I think he did. Because when his moment finally arrived he was smiling.

Smiling from ear to ear.

It was like he was saying: “Got ya!”

First Christmas

Your first Christmas ever.

We haven’t bothered you with the reason behind Christmas. It is not important to know why Christmas is celebrated. At least for you it isn’t. When you get older you can decide yourself if it is about religion or Coca-Cola and what would be more important.

The first half year

November 28th was the first half big party we had for LA.

Our little boy has been in our arms for half a year now and it is getting more fun by the day.

His diaper is fuller than before.

Yes, it does leak sometimes. But we (read: the wife) have has come to the conclusion that this has been my fault.

And I do take the blame.

Pregnancy Test – Step 3

There is an advantage about planning a pregnancy.

You will not be surprised by some crazy lady that has tears in her eyes and says that ‘We should talk’.

I have been there before, not saying that my wife was/is crazy, but we definitely had a ‘We should talk’ moment.

Not home, but alone

It is hard to not sleep at home near your baby.

It is hard to feel alone.

The first time it wasn’t a problem.

LA was only 2.5 months old. Back then he was almost only eating and sleeping.

The high-chair

When your baby gets older, he or she might eventually need to sit in a chair.

The mother has been asking a while now for a high-chair for LA.

This weekend I decided to get it done and go get that little boy a high chair.

So we took the car to a nearby baby-store.

(to me a baby-store is not a place where they sell babies, but they sell baby stuff)

partytime 5 months

Yeah, today it is five months ago that our little baby boy came out of his moms belly.

Wohooo. 5 months. Party time.

Where women usually talk in weeks, I am more a month type of guy.

Two weeks ago I told somebody that LA was 16 weeks. That didn’t make any sense.

Getting Pregnant – Step 2

After our talk with our obstetrician and the specialist we decided to give it one more try.

Because we first had to stop with some medication we had to wait at least three more months before we could really start with our plans.

Due to some more unexpected problems the ‘one more try’ sadly chanced to the third and final try.

Three strikes and we would be out of the mom and dad game:
