    First Father’s Day

    My father’s day started off early when my mom accidentally informed me in a group text that my gift had arrived on Friday, which made my day for the rest of the day. That evening i got to open my present to find my very own GoPro Camera. Of course i spent the next few hours on amazon looking at all the different things i could buy for it. Sunday morning we went to go see the fish at the California Science Center since its cheaper than the Aquarium of the Pacific. The difference between paying $20-30 per adult vs. any donation amount is a no brainer. Now that she…

    Day with Dad

    Saturday Joy had a mom’s day out with her friends at the spa which meant that Alice was going to all alone with me.

I had a good rocking/shushing to get her to fall asleep all by myself. Now she’s taken to the boob quite well and now can’t fall asleep unless she’s pacified by it. I’ve tried using our elephant pacifier to pacifier when we know she’s already eaten and is just looking for comfort but its not totally working. She’s not really enjoying hanging out with me for…

    Dude, you’re a dad.

    “Dude, you’re a dad” were the words that my sister responded to me after i told her that Joy had finally given birth. Those words were pretty much sums up me becoming an actual father. The past 9 months really haven’t affected me too much, with my day to day being pretty much the same, just with a lot less drinking and a lot more prepping i really didn’t have anything else to do. Then it starts. Wednesday night we went out for Jonathan 36th birthday at Pitfire Pizza and of course I enjoy a glass of beer to go along with our pizza but passed on the second glass…
