Parenting. Is. Awesome.

Posted by admin on Friday 1 August 2008

I haven’t talked much about what it’s like to be a new parent so hopefully the title of this message will get the point across.  Parenting is awesome.

First, I should update that Kaden had his 4 month doctor’s appointment the other day.  He is now 13 lbs 9 oz and is 24.5 inches long.  That’s a huge improvement since he was born, but still places him in the 25th percentile for his age, or at the size of a 3 month old.

As for parenting, I was looking forward to being a parent, but never expected it would be this amazing.  If you have a child, you probably remember what it was like the first time you saw him or her, and every moment after that until they grew up.  Laura and I often have trouble putting him down because we don’t want to miss a moment of his adorable smile.

I mentioned the other day he is a lot more playful and vocal, he also sleeps all night now (from about 9:30pm to 8:30am without waking to eat) and recently started drinking an apple juice which he loves as much as his bottle.

I am extremely glad our fears were put to rest and he is as healthy as he is as well.  I haven’t mentioned it before, but right before he was born we had to meet with several doctors to go over all the things that could be wrong with him – if he were to survive his premature birth.  Luckily they were wrong and I get to look forward to every day I get to spend raising our child.  Luckily I also have a wonderful wife to do that with.
