Hi everyone! I just wanted to share the good news, on Sat the 27th my wife gave birth to our first child- Amelia Violet. She was 6.5 lbs and my wife was only in labor for a half hour (what a woman!). 

Amelia was born two weeks early so it did come as a bit of surprise. Any advice on figuring out the sleeping situation would be greatly appreciated! haha

I can't wait to rollout the Legos, board games, and summer time adventures!

Awesome! Welcome to fatherhood echidna!

As far as sleeping situations, ours has mainly played out like this: My wife and the baby sleep together, either in bed or on our couch for the first year or more. Meanwhile, the other kids sleep with me. We never really used a crib or pack-n-play. Just the good old fashioned way. We also never forced our children to go to sleep alone. We would always lay down with them until they slept. If we were still awake, we would goof off for a little while in peace. But about 50% of the time, we end up falling asleep with them. Or at least I do.

Congratulations Dad!

Plan on spending lots of time running around in the great outdoors. Your new daughter will make the world seem fresh and exciting.

Hugs and love to you, mom and Amelia.

Congrats, sir!!!! That's terrific news!!!! As for the sleep thing, you won't. Ever. No mine settled after the first few months, but they do like to keep us on our toes especially in the middle of the night.

Someone once said to me, "It must be fun being a parent.".  No...no it's not.  It's very satisfying, but was rarely fun in the early days.  It is now, but not so much then.

Once they reach toddler age the fun really begins.

How are you holding up? By 2 weeks I mastered laying my daughter on my quads while balancing the bottle from my chest so I could feed her at 2 am while half sleeping.
