Six Weeks (and Then Some) in

There’s no doubt. Our lives have been turned upside down: Vilde is the new Queen of the Castle. Being a father is pretty much exactly what I expected it to be at this point: Everything from nerve wrecking to fantastic. Nerve wrecking when she projectile vomited an entire meal for the first time, fantastic when she smiled and made a happy sound for the first time. There are a lot of “first times”. Still, there’s nothing that can really prepare you for something like this, and it’s massive learn-as-you-go experience.

Here’s a small selection of what Vilde has taught us in the first six-ish weeks. All of these are probably no-brainers for people who are already parents and not very interesting reading for the rest of you, but I had a goal to pump out this entry in June, and I’m sticking to my plan.

And this is how life is these days. I’m loving it!
