Ivan had his first round of golf with me! Walked 9 holes on one of the nicest courses I've played here in Switzerland. He was a great caddy and other than one bad driver call off the tee I would say he has a good head for the game 😉

Love it! We got our 5 year old into the local First Tee program this year, and it's safe to say he's hooked. He came along for 9 holes on my birthday and I am hoping to get out with him again today after work.

I tried to upload the video but couldn't figure it out haha 😂 for a little guy he does pretty well (until he watches dad swing and then decides he needs to swing out of his shoes!) It's been a lot of fun watching him get into it!

That is the question I'm very curious about with Ivan. He is only 7 months but if i was to bet i would guess he is a lefty. Nearly all his play habits and such are left hand dominant.

Myles (pictures) is right hand dominant in EVERYTHING but swinging a baseball bat and golf club. I am a lefty through and through, so I was just glad he picked up a few things on my side 😂

Kid is going through some hard sleep regression the last week or so. Not a fun phase... Awesome nearly all day and night comes and wakes up in absolute terror. Poor guy... Anyone have this with theirs or any suggestions?

My little one is still waking up and crying then coming into my room in the middle of the night (Sometimes multiple times), sounds like your little one may be starting to get nightmares.

She likes milk at bedtime and when this happens, I will usually get her some milk, try to calm her down and lay down with her in her bed or next to her bed until she falls asleep.

It is always tough, my oldest went through what seemed like some nigh terrors as he would wake up crying and we had to snap him out of it which took a few minutes, but he was a couple years old. When they were little, it usually coincided with being more hungry as they are growing, so they would eat way more often. It might be nightmares or some separation anxiety. All I can suggest is a solid bedtime routine, and helping them through it. Never fun though.

My daughters are both in high school. One senior, one freshman. My oldest is a Governor's School student. It's a regional Magnet School for kids that have surpassed what their local high school can provide. Virginia has 12 such schools scattered across the state. She is hoping to attend Brown University next fall, if she gets in. She is shy, reserved and buries herself in books as often as possible. My youngest is way more outgoing. Her happy place is on stage. She is involved in a regional theater program and attends theater camps across the Mid-Atlantic region several times every year. 

They grow up very quickly. Enjoy it now because you will wake up tomorrow, and they will be driving a car. You often hear of the "terrible two's" but I would trade watching my daughter pull out of the driveway in her car for changing diapers and temper tantrums all day, everyday! It seems as if we woke up a few days after bringing them home from the hospital and they were strong, intelligent, independent young women. That strength, intelligence, and independence elicits equal parts pride and terror in me as a father.

Our two year old just went through a little sleep regression as well. They almost always happen for him when he is close to a new milestone. We have been going through potty training for the last month or so and he's done really well with it, so I am guessing it was related to that. While I don't have a ton of advice for you, it typically only lasted a couple weeks before getting back to normal. It's tough for sure. I go into his room and try to comfort him without picking him up, unless he is very upset. Then I just rock him until he settles down and lay him back into his crib while keeping a hand on him until he's really zonked out. Some people told me it would develop patterns, but it didn't, at least for him. Hang in there!

"I want to be happy when I grow up"...

As a fellow Father, that is the best answer I have ever seen for that. Good job Dad!

+1 on this. Our oldest started kindergarten this year and it was an emotional rollercoaster for my wife and I. You LOVE to see them grow and achieve milestones, but it is awfully hard to grasp how fast time has gone. Hope she has a great first year!
