And once again I’m a year older today. Funny how that keeps happening, right? This year my birthday is rather special, though.
First, it’s one year to the day since I got the email that changed my life – the email that invited me to interview for a job at Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com, Jetpack and Woocommerce.
And directly related to that, I’m spending my birthday with my team in Whistler, Canada, where our company is having our annual meetup where all of us come together from across the world. It kinda sucks not to have the wife and kid here with me, but it’s certainly the most exciting way I’ve ever celebrated surviving another year on Earth.

Not that there’s anything wrong with Twenty-Eleven. I still think it’s one of the best and most versatile themes we have on WordPress.com, and I regularly recommend it to people. But I think I’ll be sticking with Franklin for a while🙂
Can you believe it’s been a month already? There’s been tears; there’s been anguished cries in the darkest hours of the night; there’s been poo…So. Much. Poo!
But we persevered, with little Elizabeth silently watching us with a quizzical expression on her face, as if wondering what her mum and dad were making such a fuss about.
Having been a dad for just over a week now I thought I’d share some of the wisdom I’ve acquired on
poo raising babies, just in case it can help another soon-to-be-dad to navigate the poo new little human in his house. The faint of heart (meaning 95% of men reading this) might want to stop here…
