This kid.

Last week we got to spend four whole days together... just me and the man cub.

Which meant lots of ice cream... adventures every day... and lots of video games (even on school nights). I didn’t realize how necessary that time would be until we had it together. Grateful for those four days and definitely plan on doing more of this in the coming months and years.

Somebody was happy to get his first bath today.

And... the scale is finally in balance... our family of six is finally complete with the birth of Jude Leon Davis in the wee hours of the morning. We woke up the kids around midnight to catch the tail end of @carlierenee’s labor and they did so great. My wife is a champion... she was both fierce & graceful all the way thru and I will surely never forget those few hours leading up to Jude’s birth. And as our biggest baby yet, Linc May have to get used to having a big little brother. (if you want to see that final moment when we find out if baby is a he or a she, check the video in my story)

It is most certainly January here in Bend.

Woke up this morning before the sun to get in my morning workout and there was this crazy freezing-fog hanging in the air. There’s something magical about the cold, and I love living somewhere with seasons... it gives a nice rhythm to the passing time.
Here’s to an epic year ahead!

Prepping for the big man’s late night visit.

My @audible_com has a few extra book credits and I want to know what are a couple audio books that I absolutely M U S T download. What are some of your favorite audiobooks?

After a much needed week of R&R and time with my lady celebrating our anniversary, today is the day to jump back into "the real world." But I'm not gonna lie... I'm so grateful for my "real world" where I get to work with some incredible people and do life with the most amazing family a guy could ask for. Oh yeah... and I hit a new personal record this morning (300 pound deadlift) and finished that off with a 20-minute team workout that put me on my back. Jumping back in head first.

Thank God.

And the funny thing is, I could/should probably say the same thing about every other stage of life. Here's to reveling in the past without living in it... and to life getting better with each passing day.

Tomorrow marks 10 years with this beauty. And lemme be the first to say... marriage ain't easy. This past year has been a breath of fresh air... and a decade in, I feel like we're just hitting our stride. And it feels SO good. I can't imagine anyone else I'd rather spend my life with. @carlierenee, you are intricate... there is a complexity & depth to you that keeps me excited about each new day... not to mention you're smoking hot! So excited for these next few kidless days in the city & poolside... and for the next decade... can't wait to see where we'll be 20-years in.

Hitting the skies tomorrow for a Marketing conference in (Oh) Canada. First time trying out the KonMari (folding) method and my OCD thirst is quenched. Plus, I've got my ARC copy of @donmilleris new book for the flight and my favorite @frankandoak Chambray shirt for a night on the town. Still have the promo link in my bio if you want $30 off your first order with F+O. And since I'll be in 🇨🇦 for the week (and since F+O is a 🇨🇦 company) I'll leave the promo link up for one more week... wheels up 🛫 #frankandoaknetwork #travelaway

He sums it up with number five. He's the one that made me a Dad. And I'll spend the rest of my life figuring out how to do number five better... with each day... eager to earn the title given to me on October 31st 2009. #myfirst

The past few weeks have been chock full of work... work work, after work work, house work, backyard work, party planning work. So it was nice (but surprisingly difficult) to take a full day off work. But man was it good. We had a lazy morning, cruised downtown, walked the river and spent time with friends over a good meal. Just what the doctor ordered.
