Held him twice. He farted once and didn't cry. I am very good at being a uncle. Well done @larrylou and @barryf, he's a cracker! #UncleBen #theotherUncleBen

I've just uncharacteristically mumbled 'espresso' to correct the 'expresso' ordered by the woman in front of me. I'm calling this a lipblip.

@barryf congrats again, ours is now a few days overdue... any day now :)

@GrahamM_6t9 Cheers, Graham. And good luck with yours!

A few notes on fatherhood after my first week:

  • Even though I was warned I still took sleep for granted.
  • Changing a dirty nappy really is no big deal. But he soils them almost as quickly as I change them.
  • It’s impossible to have too many vests or baby-gros.
  • Ditto nappies and water wipes. The magic nappy bin is my friend.
  • Muslins, cloths or wipes must be within reach at all times or else.
  • For now he really does just want to feed, nap and poo all day long.
  • My wife does the feeding so I do the housework. And quite right too.
  • Leaving the house to drive to the supermarket was momentous.
  • He may have irrevocably changed our lives and we may never sleep uninterrupted again but he’s worth it.
