It was a typical family weekend for one family in Indiana. 33-year-old Michael Payless brought his gun to a home he was renovating in Salem. While watching TV with two of his children, his three-year-old son found the loaded gun and it accidentally discharged, killing Michael. No one else was hurt.
Who hasn't struggled with getting babies to sleep by themselves? In our first wacky, wild and wordless Wednesday blog, this dad gives in and lies down with his adorable baby girl in the crib. She immediately cuddles up, falls asleep and he's trapped!
We’ve all heard the adage, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is but apparently this aspiring movie star/deadbeat dad didn’t take it to heart.

My niece, Chloe, has brought equilibrium in the family. Dad used to be hard-headed that he comes late after work, but when Chloe arrived, he always bring something for her, and arrives at 7 p.m. Family dinner is always a delight. Our house helper would always cook hearty meals. Chloe could now eat what we do and she has her own red plate. No, you cannot take that away from her or else she would show you her sad eyes.
Congratulations you have been a father for one year now! I would like to encourage you to see that your baby's first birthday is as much a celebration for you and your wife as for him. The first year of fatherhood is the most profound change you have gone through as a man.
In your eleventh month of fatherhood it is probably hard to remember what life was like without your baby! Your life as a family and a father is the center of all your decisions and day to day activity. Your baby continues to grow into the world around him.
I remember how happy I would be when our son slept two nights in a row without waking up. I thought, finally we would get back to having a normal nights sleep. It seemed, just as I thought we had a "routine" established, I would find that the next night all would change.
