Good episode? Give it some love!
Brandon and Jesse catch up on what's new this week: daycare-induced separation anxiety, learning to stand, and baby-proofing the house.

Then they dig into the "dad bod." Why it happens, how it happens, and why you shouldn't beat yourself up over growing a slight case of love handles. In fact, there may be some medical benefits.
