My first Giveaway: An Orange Rhino organic onesie or shirt - UPDATED with winner

Hi all. Thanks for entering the contest. We picked the winning number 23 from random.org which corresponded to @poshlittle's tweet. More giveaways to come.

I've mentioned before that I'm not a huge fan of a lot of the baby and infant clothes that I see out there. It's just not my style and I don't get most of it. So when we found out we were pregnant I was worried that I'd have to design and print a bunch of stuff myself. That would probably leave our child running around either naked or in plain clothing because I'd never get to actually doing the design.



Then Staci found some really great stuff out there. I was psyched to find out about Orange Rhino. It's the stuff I would design if I designed clothes, so I'm glad they are doing the work for me.

What's even better is they've been cool enough to help me out with my first giveaway contest. The winner will get a onesie or shirt of their choice.

But first, here's the lowdown on Orange Rhino:

They are a husband and wife team.

They screenprint their designs on organic and ultra-soft cotton onesies (one-piece bodysuits), lap tees, and hoodies from American Apparel for comfort and durability.

Everything is made in the USA and Fair Trade.

They use organic clothing because it makes the best gift for baby showers, new babies and kids (particularly for the eco-friendly mom).

You can find their stuff at their site or baby boutiques in Minneapolis, and Minnesota suburban gift stores, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Australia.

So here's the deal with the giveaway:

Prize: A onesie or t-shirt of your choice (in stock item) 

How to enter: 
There are 2 ways to enter. You can and should enter both ways.

Method 1 – Follow this blog on Google Connect or follow the feed and leave a comment letting me know your favorite of the Orange Rhino designs. If you already follow you can just leave a comment. Please make sure you have set your up Google Connect profile with a valid email address so I can contact you. Or give me some way to get in touch with you.

Method 2 – Tweet about this giveaway. The tweet must include 3 things: @orangerhinokids, @smonkyou and a link to the giveaway. You can use this tweet or create your own (as long as you include those 3 things.)

One winner will be picked via random.org after 5PM (CST) on October 23. I'll contact the winner and then announce it here. Good Luck.

  1. Thanks Kenny for the post and your blog. I've been enjoying reading your thoughts as you are a few months ahead of me on the becoming-dad journey. My favorite design is the "birds in blossom"

  2. I love the long sleeve with the fish on it! Sooo great. Thanks for the daddy perspective blog. I'm just now 10 weeks pregnant and it's nice to read some stuff from a different perspective.

  3. My favorite is bird in blossom, but I don't have a girl so I have to go with the funky owl toddler t.

  4. I had the same fear when we found out I was pregnant, except I don't have the creative ability to fall back on designing my own clothes. Finding companies like this one is a huge relief! I for one love the bird in blossom, with the midwest collage running a close second.

  5. My favorite is the Bird in Blossom long sleeved toddler tee. BTW, Etsy is an EXCELLENT resource for indie labels that don't cost an arm and a leg and that don't look like everything else out there. If you do your homework, you can often get way nicer stuff for a fraction of the cost of most chain baby shops at your local mall.

  13. Love the Midwest Collage since we are try to keep Lilah connected with Chicago. This involves telling her bedtime stories that revolve around Manny's corn beef sandwiches and afternoons watching the Cubs blow it in the 9th. Enjoying your blog, Kenny. Love to Staci and pre-kid.

  20. I like the Organic Baby Onesie featuring Japanese Koi Fish. I agree, it's hard to find decent baby clothes. Most of them are too heavy on the 'cute' and definitely light on 'cool'. These... I like. :) Good find!
    I signed up to follow - looking forward to reading more (and off to read some older posts now).

  21. Wow, how incredible, what fantastic designs and very talented people to come up with them!
    I adore the Bird In Blossom in either the onesie or the long-sleeve tee, both are equally adorable!
    Thanks for such a lovely giveaway!

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…
