Baby Teeth

Posted by admin on Saturday 9 August 2008

Kaden having tummy timeComing soon to BEER dad and family: baby teeth.

Kaden started teething this week and has been a grump since.  BEER mom was pretty unhappy about it the first few days, but he’s starting to get used to it and so is she.

This puts him right on schedule with other babies his age.

Additional photos from this week follow.

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.

Kaden’s Monday

Posted by admin on Monday 28 July 2008

Kaden’s grandpas came to visit today.  Both of them, though at separate times.  He had a pretty big day so he’s finally asleep now, but one of his activities included another photo shoot with mommy.

There are 11 new pictures in the Baby Smith album (click to be taken to the first one).  Below are my favorites.  Check Baby Smith tomorrow for the rest of the pictures and a video from BEER mom.



My dad is in town today and tomorrow but forgot to try a bitter while he was here.  My entire family is coming in a week or two so I will have to force him to try one if there are any left then.

As usual, hit me up if you want one.  I forgot to mention the other day we got more professional photos done as well.  We should have them back and posted by next weekend.

Kaden Swinging

Posted by admin on Sunday 27 July 2008

Kaden has started to be a lot more vocal recently.  Earlier today I was playing with him while he was swinging and took this video for my mom.

He was smiling and giggling for about 10 minutes before finally settling down.  We are working on getting a video camera so we can film better movies of him and a few brewing videos.  This one was taken on my cell phone.

Feel free to contribute to our video camera fund if you feel inclined:

Four Months Old

Posted by admin on Friday 25 July 2008

Kaden turned 4 months old yesterday and finally started holding his head up more. He just learned how to roll over as well.

Laura has new videos of him over on Baby Smith.  Here are a the most recent pictures from the last few days.

As for my beer, I still have just over a case left of bitter. We visited her family last weekend and her uncles tried some and loved it. It is my favorite beer so far, but that could change once my bock is ready.  I’m  planning on starting it in a week or two.

That’s all that’s been going on for BEER mom and me.  I made an addon for Firefox a while back and have been getting quite a bit of traffic because of it over on That Smith.  That led me to having several of our domains appraised which surprised me because BEER dad is one of the higher valued.  We do get quite a bit of traffic here though too.
