Week 2 of Paternity Leave

Well, we got sick. He got his pneumococcal and hep shot on Friday, 1/23/15, and that weekend, his immune system gave in and he got a cold AND an ear infection. I subsequently fell ill on Monday morning, just a day before the “great blizzard of 2015”, which eventually amounted to 6-8 inches of dry snow. The positive note was that we got to extend the stay of family members because flights were cancelled – most notably his grand father (below):


let’s hope that forehand turns into a tennis scholarship to Princeton!

This week was pretty much a bust though, with both of us being sick. aaryaweek2-5

He was a sport though, and toughed through Daddy snapping pictures of him playing around with Geoffrey the Giraffe and my camera equipment…

Not guilty!
Not guilty!
That smile!
That smile!

Week 1 of Paternity Leave

Mommy went back to work, so Daddy’s at home for the next 2 months – I finally decided to cave and buy a tripod so that we can capture our daily banalities, sometimes starting at 3:45am, but on a good day, 4:30am. Yes, he’s getting 8 hours of sleep now, but that clock starts clicking at 8pm (sigh….)

I’m clearly more excited about his toys than he is…beatthedogup2_web beatthedogup_web

Morning espresso is so important to me…I apparently disturbed him while he was chewing on Geofferey the Giraffe.dadgivemeyourespresso_web

Nevertheless, he agrees to taking a sip because clearly staying awake is the problem for him,dadgivemeyourespresso2_web

And we settle on him eating pear instead of drinking my espresso.dadgivemeyourespresso3_web

He’s clearly content being left in “his” king size bed!Dadleavemealone_web Dadleavemealone2_webDadleavemealone3_web
