Baby Nolan


I know I've been out of the game for almost a month now, but on August 23rd, my son, Nolan Bailey Alderman, was born. Since then it's been a bit of a whirlwind. All my expectations of what I thought fatherhood would feel like went right down the drain the moment my baby boy was in my arms. What an incredible blessing!

That being said, it's been a challenging couple of weeks. My wife went back to work last week and this has left me home with Nolan most of the day. Last week I mistakenly tried to balance work and baby and it blew up in my face. This week seems to be going a little bit smoother.

I'm glad to be getting back into the swing of things. In the next couple weeks I am going to be reevaluating my project lists and some of my marketing strategies, so news of those changes will come through here. After today though I'll be moving a lot of my talk of baby Nolan to my other blog - http://www.ofdreamsandfaith.blogspot.com - to keep this one focused on writing and self-publishing.

Glad everything is going well. When Zoey was born and first came home things were a bit tough with both my wife and I getting almost no sleep. After a few weeks she started sleeping a lot better and at a couple months she had a semi predictable routine that allowed a little more breathing time for getting stuff done.

Congrats on the kid and good luck with everything.

Congratulations, daddy David!
I'm sure it's quite a special feeling. And now you have two jobs!!!

Yeah, Scott, he's starting to sleep a lot longer at night. At least 5-6 hours, so we at least get a decent block of sleep. Things were a bit tough there in the beginning though. :)

And thanks, Lorelei, for the congrats. It's definitely surreal to know I have a son now. And yes, now I have two jobs. :) I love them both.
