Another pregnancy update post: he said/she said version.



How far along? 34 weeks and 5 days.

Total weight gain/loss: I don't understand the question.

Stretch marks? Nope. 

Sleep: Nope.

Best moment this week: Baby passed the biophysical with flying colors...8/8.

Movement: Tons.

Food cravings: Anything edible.

Gender: Either a boy or a girl.

Labor Signs: Head down (the baby's).

Belly Button in or out? Sort of looks like the Snorks from the cartoon from the 80s.

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

What I am looking forward to: Kissing the babies itty-bitty toes.

Weekly Wisdom: It's OK to admit that while this is amazing it's not always easy.

Milestones: So close to full term.



How far along? Just under 35 weeks, according to the voodoo math.

Total weight gain/loss: Down another half pound which makes the total 3.5 pounds...I've slacked a bit.

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: I've been falling asleep an hour and a half earlier but getting up a half hour earlier so it's about an hour more than before.

Best moment this week: Folks at my job threw me a surprise baby shower and they had my favorite drink there...salty dogs which are greyhounds (vodka and grapefruit) with salt on the rim.

Movement: A lot, and it's still freaking weird

Food cravings: I invented a snack that I'm going to patent...but I'll let you know...it's 1 part kettle chips and 1 part Frito's Scoops...put in a bowl and enjoy.

Gender: If it's a girl it will be grounded from dating for the first 20 years of her life.

Labor Signs: No, I'm all good...thanks for asking.

Belly Button in or out? Same as it ever was.

What I miss: Knowing the tells on Wii Punch-Out...I just bought it and love it...a lot of the characters are the same as the original Nintendo version of the game but I forget the secrets...I know I can Google them but I want to figure them out again.

What I am looking forward to: Hanging with the kid.

Weekly Wisdom: I'm a bit stressed out...I know women have it rough but guys do too even tough we're not carrying around a little being inside of us...and I've been on edge the last couple weeks so sorry to all (especially Staci).

Milestones: I put a dent in my In-Law's car...it was the first time that's happened so I think that's a milestone, right? And then I left a door ajar or something so when I needed to pick them up to drive them to the airport the car wouldn't start...banner week.

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
