6 Weeks In…

So, AnneMarie entered our lives about 6 weeks ago, and despite all of the amazing advice from all my family and friends, I underestimated the amount of disruption a newborn brings.

Sleep is now a highly valued commodity. Yeni has the worst of it as I guess is normal of new moms… luckily my career path (all of them) have prepared me to function on little to no sleep… so I feel I’m ahead of the curve.

This being said, I’d love a good nap or sleep that lasts more than 2 hours. =)

I thought I understood the amount of diapers a newborn would “consume.” My lord. I need to buy stock in a diaper company.

Of course, I also never knew how much my heart would melt when this little precious girl smiles. She’s the boss. This much is clear now.

You are clearly enjoying every minute of your new life experience Fred!

It seems like yesterday that I was doing the same stuff with my daughter – who is now a 23-year old graduate working for the BBC. It is incredibly rewarding to watch them grow and evolve with time – the sweet baby stage does not last for long…..

Have you mastered the ‘wobbly baby walk’ yet? One of the best kept Dad tricks in the book – that gives you the ability to invoke sleep mode on a restless babe at 2:30am….. Essential survival skills!

BTW – your Astricon 18 talk was the best yet – sadly I missed it due to Moderator duties in a parallel stream – but we do have the TMC-produced video (which is considerably better quality than previous years) for reference!

Thanks James!

I’m working on the walk, but definitely have the wobbly going 😉

Looking forward to seeing you in Berlin if not earlier!
