So here's a Newsflash that will catch most people who know us off guard. Rachel and I are attempting to enter that territory which has been so well forged by so many of our friends yet remains a total mystery to us known as Parenthood. Stay tuned and watch me try to document things everyone else figured out ages ago as their kids head into college and we're expecting a newborn baby in January. It's a girl.

My advice on parenting is when they're up in the middle of the night if you pretend you're asleep the wife might get up and deal with it.

Oh and put the baby in front of "in the night garden" I love that show.

Good luck

Congratulations, Dan! Great news.

As the first time parent of an 11 day old baby, I can tell you there seems to be too much emphasis on the birthing process itself and too little focus on what to do when caring for them in the hospital and when you get the baby home. How to keep the little one healthy and happy.

I can email you some tidbits if you if it might help.

I know exactly where you are. It seems a little scary see how other people are dealing with kids but that's their kids yours will be different. Well at least that's how I'm choosing to look at it, about our soon to be daughter.

Ha ha ha! That's hilarious! (The Illustration, I mean.) You've captured parenthood so perfectly. It can be that way at times, but there is also plenty of good too! You'll see. Congratulations!
