    I just had a bucket-list experience last week - playing a concert at Carnegie Hall. It was amazing, unbelievable, and just as exciting as it sounds.

    I found out, to my shock and surprise, that my best friend followed these methods when her kids were small. She was actually annoyed with me for "letting the baby run my life" like that. I very...

    I'm just sad because I was apparently, according to my parents, the kind of baby who slept through the night pretty much right away. I was so hoping the mini-Meepster would take after me in that...

    OMG - three years? Yipes. This is all making me almost reconsider my plan to breastfeed for two years - I'm not sure I can deal with two years of broken sleep. At least after the baby is weaned, I...

    So I talked to a sleep consultant today. The sleep consultant in question is very much anti-'cry it out', and basically on the same page as we are with respect to not torturing the baby. It was...

    I'm just telling myself it's temporary, and leaning on my wife every so often to let me get some rest. Tonight will be one of those nights - last night, I just hit a wall of sleep-deprivation and...

    Today was almost an entirely Primal day. There were some lentils at the local Ethiopian restaurant, and one cookie at my favorite coffeeshop, as the only exceptions. I'm counting that in my 20%. ...

    Just measured the squishiness. I'm now at 137 lbs. I was 120 lbs. when I started the whole reproduction project. I'm sure part of the reason for the extra weight is the lack of sleep - a very good...

    So I guess I should conclude this journal with a birth announcement. The mini-Meepster was born November 9, 2015, weighing in at 8 lb 4 oz, after a 24 hour long unmedicated labor. She was very...

    Still hanging in there, and getting close to the impending birthday. I'm at almost 38 weeks right now, so I guess this baby could make her appearance any time. I'm hoping she stays put for another...

    Yeah, that's what we found. There's an ISR instructor not too far from where we live - the kidlet will be taking lessons as soon as she's 6 months.

    Yeah, I'm not really worried. My mother tells me that big babies run in the family - just about all of my relatives had a pretty high birthweight, and so did I, so I figure I'm just following family...

    Getting really exhausted again. I don't know where this second-trimester energy is that I was supposed to have. I feel tired, and maybe a bit depressed.

    Yeah, I know. I think I'd be way too paranoid to not test at all - I'd rather know than not know - but there are downsides.
