Paternity Leave: Day 4

Today Uncle John came up to visit for the afternoon. We went to Blaze Pizza for lunch and then came home and hung around the living room chatting while Sam napped until about 3:30 when she woke up for 2nd lunch.

She’s been taking to the bottle very well now, so at least that’s one less thing. After 2nd lunch, she stayed awake, and although able to be tamed with her little jungle play area thing for a little while, she got progressively fussier. John left before she totally melted down, but from 5:00-6:00 she was pretty awful. Here’s a picture of her and me right after she stopped screaming for a moment:

Just one of those times when there was nothing I could do. I did the big four: feeding, changing, burping, and holding, but no go. Girl’s gotta cry, I guess.

Being a parent is hard. I knew it wouldn’t be a cake walk, but I thought being a stay-at-home dad would at least be easier than going to work. I was so, so wrong.
