For years my wife and I have had an idea for a Children’s book. We never found the time to actually sit down and make it happen, but somehow after the birth of our son we made it happen. Maybe he was the inspiration to actually sit down and make it happen? Most likely, but either way we got it done and aside from a few finishing touches it’s going to be up for sale soon.
Here’s a sneak peak of some of the work in progress illustrations. We are really happy with the outcome and hope you will be too. The story is fun and has a great meaning behind it (which we will share soon). Please stay tuned here, our social networks or enter your email at dunandmun.com for updates.
I just wrapped up a month off of work for baby bonding. The days were filled with playing with new toys, books, trying out solid foods, naps, partial naps, and bonding. During that time I was actually able to notice a lot more of a bond had formed between me and baby. I firmly believe that people should get much more time off of work to bond with their children, but that’s another story. Here’s a video I took that sums up a typical day. Enjoy!
Have a baby at home? How has the experience been so far?
I’m happy to announce the birth of my son! And a little project that I’ve been working on for the past 9 months. Since this was our first pregnancy, I have to admit that I was nervous the entire time. Still am with the newborn, but thats another story. Taking a photo a day with plans to compile it into a time-lapse video, helped me turn some of the nerves into creativity. Here is our birth announcement, I hope you enjoy:
Here are a few stills from the video. We start off in the guest room which transforms into the nursery. Included in the video is also a baby moon to Hawaii along with a few other surprises. Check it out and see for yourself.
I’m an 80’s kid. So naturally I was obsessed (understatement) with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and still am.
When I saw these items in the store, I had to buy them. In fact, the bib and Michelangelo socks were the first thing that I ever bought my future baby.
This lead me to look back and think about all of the TMNT gear and toys that I had growing up and I couldn’t help but wonder what cartoon my kid will be into. Whatever it is, I know I will watch it too and have fun with it just like my parents did. Until then… COWABUNGA LITTLE DUDE!
A few months ago, I found out that I was going to be a father. Watching those two little pink lines appear on the pregnancy test was almost unreal. I was overwhelmed and wanted to call all of my friends and family to share the news, but also wanted to wait until after the first trimester…so I waited (Video coming soon).
Then I started to think about the next few months, is it a boy or a girl, will the baby be healthy, who am I going to eat sushi with, what I could do to prep the house, will I be a good father, etc etc. And yes, there are a million things to do, but for now I’m just taking it one day at a time.
