I’m a dad. My wife and I just had our first baby, and she is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Although I do not plan to be a stay at home dad, I do get the privilege of spending six weeks alone with this child when she is eight weeks old.

Stories and dirty diapers are guaranteed to ensue so feel free to journey through this adventure with me!

Firsts

It seems like I have been going nonstop for the last three months. Sometimes I forget that I need to take a minute and appreciate all of the things I have been able to experience raising our daughter. In that time, our not so little baby girl has learned quite a …

Another Milestone Reached

Over the last couple of weeks we began solid foods with Ashleigh. It seems like just yesterday we were announcing to the world that she was born and now she is almost six months old. My paternity leave and times of spending weekday adventures with her are long gone. Now …

Whole30 Round 5

Today I am starting my fifth Whole30! If you don’t know about the Whole30 program you should check out Whole30.com for more information. The Whole30 is a “reset” of sorts based on eliminating foods that can have a negative health impact. Lindsey and I started our first Whole30 nearly three years ago. …

It’s Okay to Let Someone Else Be CEO

It seems like it was over a decade ago that I was starting my college studies – and that’s because it was! Those days were filled with excitement, energy, and enthusiasm for a career that lay ahead of me. Since the day I was admitted into college, I had aspirations …

A Note to the Chairman and Senior Partner

Here is the (slightly edit) letter I sent to our Chairman and Senior Partner when I arrived back at work on Monday: For nearly four years I have been an employee at this firm. My time has been both challenging and rewarding so far, and I look forward to contributing for …

My Perfect Cup

I have been in search of the perfect cup of coffee for a long time now. As an avid coffee drinker, the daily “grind” includes multiple cups; not just to keep me going, but to give me something to look forward to when I wake up! For the last several years my …

Worst. Day. Ever.

Seriously. Today was quite possible the worst day ever. Am I being dramatic? Yes! Is that weird? Yes! Does rationalizing it make it any easier? No! Lindsey seemed stressed last night and kept talking about all the preparation she needed to do to get ready for a trial half-day at …

Best Girl Ever Award

  What a week it has been! My parents flew in from Pennsylvania last Tuesday morning and the focus has been keeping them and the baby entertained ever since! Part of the reason my parents flew in this particular week was to travel with Lindsey, Ashleigh, and I to my …

Stay-At-Home Parents Deserve An Award

Y’all, I don’t know how stay-at-home parents do it. I mean all I have wanted to do for the last week is sit down and write a new blog post to tell everyone what I have been up to; and yet, I am too tired and too busy to carve …

What color is your poop?

For years we have had couple friends who would tell each other how often their dogs pooped. We never understood it. Our cat certainly receives more attention than most children do, but to be consumed by the food exiting an animal was just a foreign idea to us. But we …
