I created a custom Cars Radiator Springs play table for my toddler’s 2nd Birthday.

For the past few months, my son 1.5 year old son has been crazy about Lightening McQueen and Cars. So that means that I’ve been into it as well. With his 2nd birthday coming up, I knew just what to do. I built him a custom Radiator Springs play table made of wood, clay, and toys from the Disney Pixar Cars movies. This video shows the process, the final product, and his reaction to seeing it. Maybe I’ll take him to see Cars 3 when it comes out! Anyways, enjoy!

My Son’s First Year of Life (TIMELAPSE VIDEO)

In our family’s typical fashion, we documented another milestone in a photo a day video. This is our son’s first year. He will be 2 in a month already. I’ve been pretty busy with daddy duty so I haven’t had much time to write, but I have a fun project coming up for his 2nd birthday gift that I will document here. Enjoy!

This picture pretty much describes the last 5 months

This picture pretty much describes the last 5 months. An incredible baby, that requires an incredible family to raise him. I’ve been constantly moving furniture around the house to prep, my wife must have developed an amazing reach in order to do all the multitasking she does, Dunder runs unbelievably fast to the baby every time he cries, and Munster…..well Munster likes to cover himself from the loud noise. Haha. Parenting has been Incredible and we look forward to all the challenges and rewards. Can’t wait til next Halloween!

Swaddle, sway, shush then sleep?

Your baby is tired and cranky, so in a drowsy blur you swaddle him, sway him, and shush him…. your arms are cramping, your back is sore, you’ve shushed out enough air to blow up a bouncy house. All you want to do is get some sleep. Finally he closes his eyes. Now it’s time for the switch, from your arms to the crib. You can’t just plop him down and expect him to stay asleep. You need technique. You need skill. The perfect combination of slowly fading out the swaying and placing him down without him noticing. Will he stay asleep while you walk away and enjoy the lost treasure of a couple hours of shut eye? Or will he release a giant ball of screaming and crying that chases you down the hall?
