How was my 2015? Pretty spectacular. Life-changing. The big news of the year was the birth of our first child, our son Maxwell. He’s almost eight months old already, and it’s amazing to see how time has gone by so slowly and yet so quickly. It was a rough first six months, because he had […]Read More 2015 in Review
While it’s not quite the most annoying sound ever, it’s close. It started in the hospital. I’m sure it’s a funny joke among the staff, because they are only involved tangentially, and they go home after a twelve-hour shift. We didn’t get to go home for five days. It seems like a reasonable question. When […]Read More The Most Annoying Question Ever?
The latest iteration of the sheet. We’ve been finding that the feeding chart for Maxwell has been inadequate. For starters, we want to track more than just his feedings; we’d like to keep track of his sleep as well. Consequently, I’ve updated the feeding chart to include a “Z” column to represent sleep, and in […]Read More Activity Chart – Mark 1 & Mark 2
No pictures for this post. You can google it if you want. You may remember that my wife and I had a son. That brings with it the heady decision of whether or not you will circumcise your boy. Here in Europe, it’s not really a common practise, but in the US where I’m from […]Read More To Circumcise or Not?
The feeding chart, updated again. I’ve updated the feeding chart again, but I’m not entirely happy with it at the moment. I’ve made it so you can represent a lot of information about the feeds per day in a small area, and list 18 of them each day, with the ability to specify one or […]Read More Newborn Feeding Chart – Mark 3
The second version of the feeding chart. We found the first version of the feeding chart too limiting. We weren’t able to easily see how things were progressing daily, and trying to keep track of “outputs” was difficult to do, both from writing them down and from also counting. I changed the chart to better […]Read More Newborn Feeding Chart – Mark 2
A picture of the feeding chart. With the arrival of Maxwell, we’ve been attempting to keep track of his feedings. This involves keeping track of the start and end times of his feeds, the type of feeds, and his, shall we say, “outputs”. We’ve been doing mixed-feeding (breast and formula) which we plan to charge […]Read More Newborn Feeding Chart – Mark 1
Welcome to the world young Master Maxwell! My beautiful & amazing wife with our son! After five days at St. Thomas’ Hospital across from Parliament/QE Tower/Big Ben (that’s a post in itself) young Master Maxwell is home with us. He’s been home now for a few days, but obviously with a newborn it’s a bit […]Read More Welcome Maxwell!
