Matt, once again thank you for sharing so much of you, your family and your experiences. You write about things must people would never admit to, and with you; we all learn and become aware "we're not all that different after all". 

 

What you are experiencing is normal for a person like you. You're someone that does not like to inconvenience other people. You are polite, reserved, quiet, and does not like to call attention. Having a child that is crying during a dinner in a restaurant goes against all I mentioned above!....It is with time that you will see that a "crying child"...it's just LIFE. Most people will understand a fussy child, a child that is teething, or not feeling well. 

You will also develop your strategies to "entertain" Sammy when he is not feeling up to it. You will not exactly what to do to calm him down. Friends will understand because you are a part of their lives and they have accepted Sammy too - otherwise there would be no "dinners out together" So, Enjoy your Daddy days...Enjoy Sammy in his early days....

In no time, he will be 1 year old and you will be facing other things parenthood will bring, and it too shall pass. 

 

Trust me, you are feeling something a lot of us experienced as well. Continue focusing in being the best daddy! that's all Sammy needs.ooxx Jeannette

LOL...there is no other way to start this! - I can relate to your feelings here! I remember the first few nights my kids slept through the night...wohooo!!!! there is no better feeling! [yet]  The great thing about you [different from us] is that you are documenting everything, what a treasure to have. 

How I wish I had documented all their milestones, their patterns, etc....kudos to you and Annie!

Hugs! ooxx

Matt, Annie, I can't tell you how awesome it is to follow not only all the milestones that Annie/LittleBrowne had, but to be able to follow now all the milestones Sammy is reaching! 

8.1oz  ~Wohoo!! way to go Sammy!  - Like you, we had out son circumcised on his second day (before we left the hospital) He will heal in no time!....and you will too. I say this because I remember how I used to cry right along with him when he received his baby shots, I couldn't even look! ... Is one of those things you know you should do, yet it breaks your heart to see them go through anything that could be uncomfortable for them:( Once again, thank you for taking us along in this journey! ooxx ~J

Annie, you're going to be an awesome mommy! I can see it already:)) How lucky is LittleBrowne to have you and Matt as parents.Don't feel bad about not making the right decision at the right time...or for the right reasons. As parents we don't have instructions for everything we do. We just do the best we can and the best we know how, and most of the time we learn from this. Making this kind of decisions is very hard! it's ALL unknown to us, but you will notice as time goes by how you  will acquire this "mommy wisdom"   and you will be making the right decisions for your baby, and for Matt and you. Follow your instincts. ~ welcome to motherhood!

Wow Paul, thank you for sharing these intimate stages of your life with us. It takes a strong character to do so. Even though I haven't known you for a long time; it is evident how much you have grown and mature during your journey....and that is all we can expect to do. We all experience "high's and low's" in our lives but it's what we take away and what we do with that, that counts! I am confident you are heading towards "good places" in your life, and we are here beside you to cheer you on! Honored to have you in my stream daily!    #YouMatter

Great post Michele, I think for the serious social media users,  sometimes it can feel like a chore rather than what is intended to be: "social vehicle"  - and sometime we lose the joy!  so it is great to be reminded to focus on our own priorities (those priorities might be different for all of us).

Margie, I totally understand the need to shift things and focus in your professional profile more than your personal presence. It's a constant struggle for me as well. I feel fortunate to know that while you might not be here, many of us will be connected with you in many other platforms. I love your insight, your wisdom, your sensible and always awesome judgement!  -- Happy to see on the flip side!

Thank you Margie for this great post and for all the kind words you have for us! While this idea came from my not being able to attend SXSW and always feeling like the only girl not allowed in the playground, the idea was quickly adopted by all of us!

It takes a great group of people to make this happen and THAT we have plenty of. We have an abundance of talent, intelligence, wittiness, and camaraderie. How can we fail?  We are proud to be able to bring this conference live to others that will not be attending SXSW and stoked about shining the light on invaluable hosts like you!    

It's always a pleasure to work on anything with Joe Ruiz, he brings so much to the table; his organizational skills and knowledge allows us to be successful - I have so much respect for him and honored to call him friend.

 

PS: We can't forget our sponsors! Companies such as Hootsuite & Grooveshark, have been behind us since the beginning. BIG thanks to all, we couldn't do it without their support!

 @BrandFlair John, Patrick was the only dog, we as a family  (now marry with kids) have ever had! -- I had a dog at home when I was a child, for not very long. So, really, Patrick was the one and only. Now I can't bare the thought of another one. The thought of someday going through the same pain is unbearable.....

John,  I am so sorry to hear of your loss, my heart aches just reading your touching and heartfelt post! Having lost my dog last year; I perfectly understand the huge void we feel and the pain so hard to describe to others that have never owned a dog.

Just wanted you to know; my thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family affected by the passing of beautiful Marti.  oxoxox

@libbytalks@jackinessity Ladies, please know we deeply care about you both. We get wrapped up sometimes and fail to see what's happening in everyone's lives and as friends we should do a better job of knowing about you. At low times in your life, remember we're only a DM away...a hashtag away, an email away and all the time; only a phone call away. We care! we can talk, discuss, and share as much as you want to.....that's what friends are for!

Hugs to you both!

FYI: the famous words came from McCartney as: **And, in the end, the love you take/ Is equal to the love you make** and misquoted by Lennon - piece of trivia here..

Great post @Josepf I agree with you in many of your points above. But this mentality has come with time. You know I'm an early #usguys and involved in early planning for #usguys future and when I look back now I realize this came from the "love and attachment we had for the people we had met"....but at the end of the day; it was merely a hashtag!

You are correct about the initial 5 did not set out to create this. There was no intention of a group: a tribe, websites, groups pages, LinkedIn groups, chats,etc. - so in my eyes this was not created by the initial 5 - WE created this! it was our daily commitment to discuss our passions and to share our #coffee. It was our dedication to the hashtag and our new friends that kept this alive. Sadly the initial 5 were some of the first one's to leave us - but we have to understand it was not their intention.

To this day, people join us for a multitude of reasons and they leave; also for their own reasons. Some we will never understand. But there is a group of people that have bonded and we have become "real friends"

I feel that some of those people are closer to me than friends I have IRL. Since I share and chat with you guys a lot more frequent than I do IRL and like @LewisPoretz said: There is nothing I wouldn't do for them! ....and for that I thank #usguys.

So no need to think past what it is, No need of website, or logos....we make what we want out of it.

Like Paul McCartney said: "And in the end, the love you get is equal to the love you give"

Huge love and appreciation for #usguys!

Margie, while this saddens me, I perfectly understand. It saddens me for selfish reasons; I won't get to see you and learn from you! like many of us have for over a year. but this is not about me, this is about you. You should be enjoying what you do. If you have lost that bit of joy, you will know it! You will know when is time to walk away.

Some of us are fortunate to have developed a friendship with you #beyond140; we know where to find you and stay in touch with you ~ and we will.

Take care Margie, until my next email:)
