Warning: This post may cause injury or even death

So last night we assembled the changing table. The assembly part wasn't bad, but out of the 6 or 7 major parts, there were 4 huge stickers warning of my baby's death on them. Clearly changing a diaper can be quite the adventure. Should I not have gotten the changing table with the buzz-saw and surgical lasers?

Anyway, something that should have taken 30-45 minutes ended up being two and a half hours, most of which was removing stickers and using goo gone to remove the sticky part. Thankfully the crib does not have that kind of sticker coverage, or else that would take forever too. That is on the slate for tonight.

So now that furniture is starting to get assembled, it's still being setup in our bedroom. The nursery still has not been completely cleared out of our office stuff. We're just about out of space and our little boy hasn't even set foot in this world yet.

I've enjoyed catching up on your blog.

Anything for babies/children requiring assembly will take at least 3 times as long as you think you'll need. The biggest challenge for us was correctly installing the carseat. I STRONGLY suggest that you wait until you have a large chunk of time, and NOT late a night to do this. You'd think it'd be easy, but to do it right takes awhile.

Glad you were able to feel the baby move. That's exciting!

Don't worry, your son will always be your "baby" and will always need you, no matter his age. I agree that a primary goal of parents is to teach their children to be self-sufficient.

I found a great website for fatherhood/dad bloggers: it's
