Dadurday Pregnancy The First Year

Dadurday #26: Welcome to the World, Miles Joseph

By on January 30, 2017

“Hello my son,
welcome to Earth.
May not be my last,
but you’ll always be my first.”
Sturgill Simpson,
Welcome to Earth (Pollywog)  

While one might expect a post written shortly after their birth to solely focus on them, I’m taking a bit of a different approach here. There will…

Dadurday #21: Merry Christmas!

By on December 25, 2016

I’ve unfortunately fallen a little behind with the blog (formatting issues after some updates — most of the content is written, but it’ll take some time to get it all up), but I wanted to make sure I got my Christmas post up on time, because… it’s Christmas. And a time…

Dadurday #20: Calm Before the Storm

By on December 17, 2016

I should probably preface this by mentioning that by “storm,” I only mean that things are about to get very hectic, not that there are unwelcome events on the horizon. For whatever reason, things are just surprisingly calm right now. We’re enjoying it while it lasts, but not allowing ourselves to…

Dadurday #15: Never Showering Again

By on November 12, 2016

The baby showers are now over (forever, from what I understand — apparently people only make this big a deal about the first child), and to say we’ve been fortunate would be putting it lightly. Aside from the high-chair — which I’m as thrilled with as your crib, as it also…

Dadurday #14: Shower Season

By on November 5, 2016

I’m not sure how you do it, but somehow, despite the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series for the first time in over a century (!!!), you remain the headliner. This weekend marks the first of the baby showers — this one for family, next weekend for friends — and…

Dadurday #13: Hangin’ with Papa & BB

By on October 29, 2016

While I’m very happy that Papa and BB will soon be closer to us, it’s unfortunate that you’ll never get a chance to visit them in Minnesota. They have quite the home, and though I have no doubt you’ll be spoiled in…

Dadurday #12: Headed to Minny!

By on October 22, 2016

As we approach your week as a head of lettuce (Week 27), and the beginning of the third trimester, your Mom’s immune system continues to struggle to keep up with her body’s new demands. It’s consequently been a very low-key week, as we’ve tried to relax as much as possible in…

Dadurday #11: Hope You Like Garlic!

By on October 15, 2016

I’m not sure what kind of kale the creators of The Bump are eating (heavier than cauliflower or cantaloupe?), but that’s apparently what you become on the 26th week. A bit lame, but on a more exciting note, your eyes are forming and will soon begin to open — hopefully that…

Dadurday #10: Buds Already

By on October 8, 2016

Approaching your week as a cauliflower, there are very few updates to report. You’re still kicking like a maniac, all is generally well with the pregnancy check-ups (the placenta is a bit lower than it should be, but our midwife isn’t concerned — and a quick Google search indicates…

Dadurday #9: Baby Budgeting

By on October 1, 2016

We’re about to hit Week 24, and you’ve really begun to make your presence felt — that request I made to give your Mom a few kicks? Mission accomplished there, slugger. You’re endlessly bouncing around these days, and while your Mom generally enjoys it (and I love it), there…

At the time of starting this blog, I am a 32-year-old teacher, husband and (very excited) father-to-be. Each Saturday, I will be posting a picture and brief video chronicling our lives together as a family, along with writing about our various adventures and my experiences of fatherhood whenever inspiration strikes.
