In a majority of cases it takes a man and a woman (and sometimes a doctor or two) to make a baby. I learned today that sometimes epic arguments go down in hospitals about who’s the daddy but I can with 100% confidence say that the hairy attorney I crawl into bed with every night is the father of both my children. If their browbone didn’t give them away their passionate love for dairy products and carbs would be a close second to a paternity test.
Cody is a really good dad. We had some rough bumpy first few (oh, eight) first years but we’ve figured out a pretty nice flow and as far as what my own personal comfortable version of “normal” is? We’re totally there.
Six years ago I started a blog as a creative outlet and lazy way to keep my family updated on the finer details of my firstborn’s life. Three days ago Cody drank the Kool-Aid and began blogging.
Ladies and gentlemen? We’re a blogging couple. Practically the Brangelina of the blogging world (lies, we’re more like Jim and Pam.)
Cody has guest posted several times for my own blog and on Monday he began writing for Babble’s Dadding blog. He introduces himself here, tells you all about Addie here and then talks about his baby here. Like you really need one more thing to read, but dad bloggers are a new and fighting force out in the Internet and I love that he wanted to do this. Not only for selfish reasons (HE’S SO IN LOVE WITH US!) but also because dads/men are often overlooked but such a huge part of every kid’s life.
I’m tickled that he’s a part of mine and that he’s so willing to share bits and pieces of what it’s like to be the only man in a house full of women. (Unless you count the two boy cats, but they’re down a few balls between them so I’m not so sure they count.)
