New Addition to the Bach Family


This year SHS history teacher, Ryan Bach, welcomed a new member to his family.  His daughter was born on August 17th, 2021, at 7:30 in the morning. She weighed eight pounds, was twenty inches tall and came home on the 18th.  Her name is Everly Bach. Her big brother, Lincoln, is embracing his new role.

“At first, he ignored her presence but warmed up to her within about a half-hour.  Now, he asks to hold her when he’s sitting in bed and tries to assist with bottle feeding,” said Bach.

Bach exclaimed that Lincoln was quick to go to sleep after an evening feeding while Everly was not.

“We suspect she has a sensitive GI tract, acid reflux, or something that causes discomfort after eating,” exclaims Bach.

This usually happens between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. which is not the best time to be awake. They also worry that this might wake up their three-year-old son that sleeps in the room next door. Bach is very appreciative that his wife lets him stay asleep on work nights, but sometimes he will wake up to Everly crying even though he is a deep sleeper.

Bach ended by saying, “I felt like I had an easier transition of fatherhood with a young infant with my son, but feel like the same strategies do not work this time around. Everything is more difficult this time around, and it’s amazing how much you forget about caring for an infant once your other child gets older.”
