Baby Backbacks With Support

GD Star Rating

It is pretty crazy to think that last year at this time I was playing poker one or two nights a week and not really accepting the reality of becoming a father.

The first couple months were are real adjustment for me. It could be because of the colic or just the fact that I have been selfish my entire life. For the past 25 years I have surfed when I wanted to, mountain biked when I wanted to, snowboarded when I wanted to and that was that. I want to surf at 6:30am guess what..I get up early and surf.

Anywho, all that is changed now. Like I said, tough for the first few months but it then becomes the best thing in the world. Becoming a father is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

I am currently waiting for Sydney to wake up. I am in the kitchen drinking coffee and shopping online for a new way to strap our daughter to us so we don’t have to put her in the stroller everywhere we go. Check this thing out:
