This is the book that started it all!  Written for my first son to amuse my wife, it started the ball rolling to figure this whole publishing thing out.  This book itself, illustrated with my own doodles, was completely unpublishable - but through the wonders of self-publishing, I've now made it available at Lulu.com.

Special edition family gift book for new babies or one-year-old birthdays. In Confessions of a Milk Addict, the first-time dad/author records the wonders of life’s first year in a collection of pictures and rhymes. This unique journal captures the heart and humor of the most dramatic year of life for both baby and parent, a journey of discovery from spit up to first steps and everything in between. So relax, pour a tall glass of milk, and step inside. You may never look at babies the same again...
