That’s right everyone, this is it. The last post. Thanks to everyone for giving me so much support along the way!
The reasons I can no longer keep this blog going are many, but they all boil down to one main factor… TIME! Somehow I’ve run out of it! With school getting super intense, a new baby at home, time with Julie becoming more scarce, and a hundred other things… I just can’t spend the time that I DO have on the computer. It’s hard enough for me to find time to do the important things like “eat” and “sleep.”
So thank you to all of you! This has been a great experience! I will keep in touch with everyone. You can always get in touch with me at Digicode13@yahoo.com.
I’m sure I’ll be back someday!
Good bye friends!

My Grandpa came to town today and we were able to get this “four generations” picture. Noah, me, my Dad and Grandpa. I’m glad we got it. Grandpa may not be around for much of Noah’s life and Noah will be glad to have this picture with his great-grandfather.

It’s official, Noah is one month old today! That means just 17 years and 11 months left of legal responsibility! We can’t wait to pack his bags and throw him out into the cold cruel world!
Oh wait… my heart is trying to tell me that what I just said isn’t true. It’s saying that over this month I’ve grown to love this little guy. That in one measly month I’ve forged bonds that will last for the rest of my life. How can that be? How can I have such strong feelings for this kid??? I barely know him!
I guess he is pretty cute. And I do love the way he cuddles up to me after his mommy feeds him…
But he doesn’t even talk! Or do anything really exciting for that matter. He just eats, sleeps and poops.
It is pretty awesome when he wraps his little hand around my finger though. And when he falls asleep as I rock him time seems to stand still.
I wish he would let me sleep more…
But I guess I don’t need to sleep so much anyway.
Life has become pretty hectic…
but at the same time everything is slowing down.
You know what? I think my heart is right! I love this boy! This month has been hard, but it has been one of the best months of my life!

By the end of this week Noah will be a month old. I’d be a liar if I didn’t say that this has been one of the best months of my life! Today will be a list day… I’m going to list all of the things that have contributed to this month running smoothly. These are the things that make me happy!
1. My wife! Watching her transform into a mother has been absolutely awesome! She’s tough as NAILS.
2. Noah! He’s a good baby, I have to thank him for that. He sleeps almost all the way through the night. He doesn’t cry unless he’s hungry. He’s pleasant. And he only pees on me when he really has to (not out of spite).
3. KFC Snackers! These things are awesome! At a buck apiece they are friendly on the wallet and they are perfect for situations where you don’t feel like making food on your own (like when you’ve just had a baby).
4. Grandparents! Julie’s Mom came over often during the first couple weeks to help out. She would watch the baby long enough for us to get in a nap. My parents really helped us out with food when we were in the hospital. Basically, Noah’s grandparents have all helped make this an easy transition… thanks guys!
5. Nintendo DS! Whether Julie is playing it while she nurses, or I’m playing it all the rest of the time… it has been a great investment! Who says video games are for kids!
I could go on with this list, but I just realized that this post is becoming too long. I’ll end here! Here are a couple pictures of Noah. His aunt Lori bought him these cool Converse All Stars and we had to try them on before he grew out of them! He’s so cute!

I never dreamed of becoming a world famous runway model when I was young. Then again, the runway model industry didn’t have superstars like Derek Zoolander back then either. Noah seems to have found his calling in life as he spends much of his day practicing “Blue Steel,” getting pampered, and being adored by the masses.
He still has a way to go, but the desire is there!
“Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking “wow, you’re ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career.”” – Derek Zoolander

I think he looks good up there!
August 3, 2006
I can’t believe it’s been a week already! And what an amazing week it has been!
Noah is doing great and making good progress. He finally got nursing down after a couple sleepless nights. He had his first pediatricians visit. He pooped for the first time (followed shortly by the second, third, and fourth times). He had a million visitors. He took a mini-road trip over to his grandparent’s house. He holds his head up. I really don’t think there’s anything that this little dude can’t do! (except just about everything!)
As for Julie and me? We’re doing pretty good as well. We’re tired. The house is a mess. We’ve been eating left-overs for days. But beyond all that, we’ve never been happier in our lives! It’s amazing that such a little baby can produce such great amounts of joy!
Speaking of sleep… I’m going to try and catch a nap before Noah wakes up. I’ll leave you with the baby photo test! Here are some baby photos of Julie, me, and Noah… see any similarities? Any differences? Any opinion at all? Let me know! (Julie is the one in the dress!)
