3am Feedings and 3:45am Diapers

It's currently 5:45 in the morning and I'm sitting next to a rustling baby. The rumbles of a morning thunderstorm resounds throughout the house, as well as Khali's rumbling tummy, with the occasional toot. As she sleeps so peacefully, I'm typing away wondering why I can't just fall asleep. I was tired when I went to bed last night. Ok, I never REALLY went to bed last night.

She's Here

My life has changed forever. On May 28th 2015 at 7:36am, my Daughter Khaleesi (Khali for short) came into this world. The past week I have been trying to write a few posts but I just couldn't find the time to sit down and actually write coherent sentences. It's funny how instantly busy you become once you have a child invade your life. Today has actually been the least eventful one so far.
