    We watched intently as all of our friends started the parenthood journey over the past few years.  We're eyes-wide-open about the fact that it's not always easy.

      ..probably because everyone blocked it out. Eventually she'll be curious about the warm, squishy stuff in the back of her diaper. You may be late for work that day.

      Also, letting kids try new foods around 2 is really fun. Make sure to have a video camera rolling, and let her try a lemon wedge. The look on his face made up for everything. Wasabi was even better!

      Feel free to message if you need some male-perspective help on stuff.

      when she starts teething, you may revisit the age limit.

      Just sayin'....

      I found, when my boys started teething, that a cotton ball soaked in vanilla extract made a great soother. (My dad would sometimes resort to cotton balls soaked in Jim Beam, when my siblings and I were teething.)
