Two weeks ago, my wife and I were blessed with a new addition to our family – Kate. It was a beautiful experience that exuded heaps and heaps of happiness. We have a lot of support from our friends and families, which resonates with the saying that it takes a community to raise a child.

Not to downplay the joys of children, but I had forgotten about a few things, mainly:

  • sterilizing bottles; and
  • sleepless nights.

The first couple weeks tend to be a little patchy, but everyone quickly falls into their habits/routines.
