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!
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!
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?
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!
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?
