Well, 2 nights ago, my son Noah finally started sleeping well enough that we didn’t have to take turns watching him throughout the night. He has been having some belly issues, but it appears they are behind us. The wife and I decided to put him in his crib. I must say, I just get warm and fuzzy when I see him sleeping in the crib that I made. Kinda goofy I guess, but it just makes me feel proud, I really think the project came together well, and am really happy to see it being used.
Just thought I would share.

Nothing goofy about it and am glad papa has that moment where he can watch his little one supported by something he made. That is what it is all about.

Your story reminds me of when I brought my oldest home. My wife and I would take turns watching him sleep in rotations during the night. After being woken up to take another turn it fnally dawned on me to ask her “Why are we watching him?” She looked at me a little confused and replied “I don’t know” Our rotations stopped after that and we quickly learned to grab sleep whenever we could.

Parenthood, always an adventure.

Watching him become the responsibility that you take when you become a parent.

The joy you get is the best part of becoming a parent.

I’m glad that things are working out and congratulations.

My biggest accomplishment in my life are my sons. What a joy to make a crib for your son and enjoy every second he’s in it. enjoy every second with him and your family. They grow so quickly.

I made a crib for our son who was born two weeks ago. One thing that makes me feel better about leaving him (screaming, though full and clean) in the room all alone is that he’s in such a heavy duty crib!

Nothing goofy about it my friend. Just part of being a dad. Enjoy the feelings now because some day he’ll be a teenager. Great work.
