Then We Were Four

My life changed forever with one kiss in the Summer of 2000. I was friends with Amy for a long time before we started dating but when we fell for each other, we fell hard. First came love, then came marriage but there were a lot more milestones for us…

The Fight of Her Life

A week ago today, my mom passed away in her sleep. For the memorial service on Sunday, I stood by her casket and talked to family and friends about how selflessly devoted she was to her kids. I joked about how she would often tell people that she was the daughter…

32 Years Ago

As a dad, this short email from my mom yesterday was the best birthday present she could’ve given: “Your dad was 30 years old expecting his first child and not knowing boy or girl, I kept telling him you were a boy. After you came I’ll never forget the look in your fathers eyes the first time he held you, it was like nothing I’d ever seen. Even the room got quite for a brief moment as you looked right at him. Your dad leaned back over me and as he did, took your little hand and said it would never have to hold a hammer. I was already in tears, so that just really got me and I understood what he meant.

We’ve gotten a lot more slack about it recently but for the first 3 weeks or so, Ames and I recorded every single feeding and diaper change with an iPhone app called Baby Connect. I’ll just let this chart serve as my excuse for not posting.

Tres Cero

The last couple months have really been a blur for Amy and I. We’ve spent every free weekend and almost every evening sanding, spackling, painting, caulking, sorting, packing and cleaning. We won’t be making the move to Atlanta till the 1st weekend of April but we want to make sure the house is in the best condition possible before we put it on the market.

With all that constant work it was nice to take an evening off last night to celebrate my 30th birthday with a few close friends at Miyabi. It had been a few years since the last time I ate at a Japanese Steak House and I forgot how much fun it was…
