Announcing Colette Lillian Bryant

by Sean Bryant on November 8, 2012

On November 5 my wife and I were very pleased to welcome our first child Colette Lillian Bryant into this world. Colette is a happy, healthy baby weighing in at 7 pounds 14 ounces.  The first couple of days have been a big change for both my wife and I , but we are loving every minute of it.

Over the next week I have a bunch of great articles scheduled on One Smart Dollar.  For those of you who I do social media and weekly round-up exchanges with those will return very soon.

The following two tabs change content below.

    Congratulations, that’s so exciting, she looks gorgeous! My wife and I are expecting our first in January so you will be able to tell me all the things to watch out for.

      Biggest advice I can give after one week is sleep when your baby sleeps :-)

      • http://www.monsterpiggybank.com/ Glen @ Monster Piggy Bank

        I reckon after a few weeks of being awake at all hours of the night and day, you will be hard pressed not being asleep when the baby is sleeping.

    What a beautiful baby. I love her flower headband. Congratulations

  • Fred @ One Project Closer

    Congratulations!!! She is beautiful!

    • http://www.onesmartdollar.com/ Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      Thanks Fred.

    Thanks a lot.

    I am a bit late with this but: aw, congratulations, Papa! She looks so dashing in her headband. Hopefully you and baby girl are tucked away somewhere blissfully sleeping. How is your sleep deprivation thus far? tee-hee

    • http://www.onesmartdollar.com/ Sean @ One Smart Dollar

      Thanks a lot.

      It could be a lot worse. I help change the diapers and swaddle but I sleep when my wife is feeding. Not much I can do to help out with that :-)
