Our son is finally here!! At 6:42 AM on June 23rd 2019(About 4 days ago), our son was born. We still need to get used to him being here with us…our sleep schedule has changed pretty drastically. Even our meal schedules have changed a bit in order to meet his needs. I, myself am still adjusting to the changes, but the joy that he brings makes it all worth it.   Making Adjustments These last 4 days have been a blur. We had an appointment with his pediatrician less than a day after he and my girlfriend were discharged from the Read more…


Today our son weighs 7.23 pounds and is about 19.9 inches tall…about the size of a pumpkin.   Is Today The Day? Today is possibly the day!! What day you may ask? The day that we go in to get induced. We are currently on-call to go in to get the birth process started. I feel calm yet on edge. We’ve been on call since 7 AM today, we will remain on-call until 9 PM tonight. The possibility of our son arriving tonight or tomorrow is sending me into a panic and excitement. On one hand, our lives will change forever. Read more…


Today, our son is 6.61 pounds and 19.6 inches tall. He is the size of a winter melon and each of his hands are the size of one side of a Rubic’s Cube.   Week 37 was the first full week of our baby at full term. This means that he is fully developed and whenever he decides to come out, he’s good to go. It’s kinda crazy knowing that we have a full sized baby still in my girlfriend’s tummy. I can imagine his movements being that of a newborn but restricted by the space that he has inside my Read more…


Today, our son weighs 6.17 pounds and is 18.9 inches tall…about the height of Romaine Lettuce.   At the moment of writing this, we are at Full Term!! This means that our baby is fully developed and if he chooses to come out now, he will be fine. Our baby can come out anytime between now(37 weeks) and 3 weeks from now(40 weeks). I am so excited!!   This week has been a pretty good week for me and my girlfriend. We got a few gifts from our friends via a couple of Facebook posts of our registry. The few gifts Read more…


Today our son weighs 5.73 pounds and is 18.7 inches tall…about the height of a papaya. Week 35 was a pretty good week. We decided to return the Snuggle Nest to get a Dock-A-Tot. The Dock-A-Tot seems to be better quality than the Snuggle Nest. The design of the Dock-A-Tot makes it a lot more comfortable for our baby than the Snuggle Nest. It’s also more pricey, but we found one at a discounted price at the local TJ Maxx. This week, we also picked up a Boon Grass set for all our baby bottle cleaning needs. These are beautifully designed! Read more…


Today, our son is 5.07(2.29 kg) pounds and is 18.1 inches tall…about the size of a pineapple.   Small Pick Ups In the beginning of Week 34, my girlfriend and I went to do a little bit more baby shopping. Since we’re winding down, waiting for his arrival…we only picked up a few things that we still need. There are a couple of big purchases but most are smaller things, like bottles, thermometer/thermostats and maybe a couple things for his mommy also. We picked up an Ubbi Steal Diaper Pail which is really cool because you’re able to use traditional garbage Read more…


Today, our son is 4.63 pounds(2.1 kg) and 17.7 inches tall. About the size of a butternut squash.   Bedside Manner This week, we met another doctor from our clinic Northwest Women’s Healthcare. She was a nice doctor with great bedside manner. In fact, all 3 doctors that we’ve met have great bedside manner. They all have a very nice soothing tone to their voices which shows that they are very caring. My girlfriend wanted a clinic with only women and we found a great one. Everybody, including the nurses, assistants and receptionists are very patient and always seem to be Read more…


Today, our baby is weighs 4.19 lbs(1.9 kg) and is 17.2 inches tall…about the height of a stalk of celery.   Nesting Week 32 has been a very productive week in this journey…mostly because my girlfriend is in her nesting phase and she has been actively checking off items our baby checklist by getting all the smaller but important things. She ordered a hospital bag for when we go in for the delivery, we also got a bunch of accessories for the hospital bag. baby bath tub, wash cloths, towels, organic diaper rash cream and she also got some nursing apparel.

Today, our baby is 3.75 lbs(1.7 kg) and he is the size of a squash or 16.6 inches tall.   Before we begin, I wanted to mention that just a few months ago, the measurements we were getting measured from the top of his head to his bottom(crown to rump) but now we are getting full measurements. It’s a big deal to me because the time has flown by before I even had a chance to stop and think about it. And it’s so crazy to me that the measurements changed from crown to rump to a full body one before Read more…


Today, our baby is 3.31(1.5 kg) lbs and 16.1(40.8 cm) inches tall…about the height of a stalk of asparagus.   The Good Of The Rough In the last post into “My Journey” I talked about how tough the last few months have been and I wondered when it’ll get better. What I neglected to include was that it hasn’t all been bad. In the midst off all the “bad” that I spoke of, there were some good sprinkled in there. My girlfriend and I still love each other and the relationship is/was doing well, we have been in a transition period Read more…
