You made it to two years old, Maddie! And sometimes it seems like you’re going on 22.
It’s hard to believe that my newborn son is already more than a month old, but this calls for some reflection on the new stage of life that we have entered—man-to-man parental defense. With one month in the books, I’m proud to report that we have thus far largely flourished under these new conditions.
Since this week featured two back-to-back business trips for me with just a couple days at home in-between, my wife and daughter packed up and headed south for an extended stay with my in-laws. This means that for basically the first time since I got married, I have the house completely to myself for two nights.
At 14 months, Maddie has become increasingly verbal, increasingly mobile, increasingly intelligent, increasingly playful and increasingly fun to be around. And time is going faster than ever!
