The new best part of my day.

The new best part of my day.

Now that Cole is older and well past the swaddling point, the new hotness of cool things for first time dads to experience is smiling and/or laughing in the kid’s sleep. Considering how much time I spend with him, I don’t get this as often…

What does a world traveling dad look like?*

What does a world traveling dad look like?*

I don’t have much by way of clothing as we have embarked on our most recent travels. If you see me, chances are you see me in something resembling the photo below: When buying clothes for the trip, I tried to stick with tech material…

The incredibly mobile kidlet

The incredibly mobile kidlet
