Halo SleepSack Swaddle Review

What is this swaddling business I thought to myself? We went over how to swaddle a baby on several of the parenting classes we took, but I don’t remember anybody emphasizing how USEFUL this would be. I thought it was something like changing a diaper. You just do it and it’s no big deal, just one of those things you learn to do and move on. I was greatly mistaken.

Rockin’ Dads Class

Polished Momma asked me to go to this class as part of the series of classes that we have to go before our baby is born. I can’t say I was skeptical, because I really wasn’t,  and I’ll be the first to admit that I could always learn something more about what’s coming in regards to delivery, the hospital and anything that happens beyond that point.

The Road To Fatherhood

Welcome to my blog! Our baby girl is due in early September and we couldn’t be more excited for her arrival. We’ve gone to check ups, sonograms, shopping to Ikea, turned a cluttered room into a nicely decorated nursery, had two baby showers, discussed potential names and many other things. I’m very excited to be on this journey and couldn’t think of a better person to do it with. My wife, Polished Momma will have her own blog, and she’ll share her experiences there. I’m looking forward to sharing our adventures with you, the projects and crafts we’ll be working on,...
