Well boys, looks like I have a preorder coming that I did not expect, nor ask for! This one's a bit out of the ordinary from your standard makeups we usually see 'round these parts...

According to the experts, it'll be appearing sometime in late September unless things don't go as planned with the factory! ;)

This is the very first for Mrs. Savvy & I; I always joked it would go like this (unexpected, out of the blue), and it seems I was right!

Still in shock, and I'm honestly super nervous, but excited for the future. We haven't told our families yet as we're planning to tell them in person in the coming weeks, so I had to spill my beans to somebody.

Cheers, and I'll drink Mrs. Savvy's along with mine! :cheers:

Congratulations! I hope all goes well and you and your wife have a healthy child.

How about a toast of bourbon in your honor?

Feels like a joke, but I know it isn't

In all honesty, the best shoes we ever had was for our youngest. The wife bought a bunch of soft soled leather shoes off Etsy. The various sizes lasted forever, and the flexibility is good for learning to walk.

Also, no point buying newborn size shoes (or fancy outfits) as the first two months or so they’re always wrapped in blankets and in a carrier. 3-6 months is a better size, or at minimum 0-3 months. Newborn sizes last like two weeks!

Congrats!!

It's funny - I remember getting all this advice from parents about all the things to do before you have a baby, and very little of it was useful until after - lol. I just didn't have enough context to understand a lot of it. Some things sounded very simple advice and later I realized how nuanced some of it was. So I try not to offer much more than the following: Your wife is going to be kinda nuts the first week or three after the delivery - stress/hormones/lack of sleep/etc. Just keep your head down and support her. The other thing is to just keep in mind that the baby will sleep...eventually. All three of mine had a switch flip at a month or so and even though the schedule evolved over time we had some predictability.

What's funny is when we had our second it was like we'd never had one - e.g. "Are you supposed to boil this??", etc. :rotflmao:

Anyway, it's a cool time, and it runs away. My spawn are 21, 18 and 17 now, and that amazes me...

“eventually” is the key word. My son didn’t sleep a full night until he was almost 3
Oh I never said "full night" 😉

I have to admit, it's blurry. I can't remember now if it was 1 month or 3 months, but all three of them were tough... until they weren't. And all three seemed to give us 4-6 hours at a stretch after that and eventually it was a fairly regular night. But the first one didn't sleep more than an hour or two for a looooong time (hence why it's blurry 🤪)

Sorry...if I wasn't clear, I meant 3 YEARS. Yes, I wish I was kidding.
