Last post before we're parents.


Tomorrow we're headed to the hospital so they can induce Staci. Both her and the pre-kid (last time I can say that) are doing fine. However because of Staci's gestational diabetes and the babies size the doctors think it's best to deliver now. It's only a week early so that's all good.

So, yeah, we're super excited and pretty freaked out...if a week ago you asked if we were ready the answer would have been yes...then once we knew the date we were going in, vs. being unsure, we totally felt unprepared...funny how that works.

Next post will be a baby pic, name, stats and all that.

  1. ok, SO excited. i could not sleep for shit the night before my induction, i was so nervous/excited. i can't wait to hear updates and i feel like a crazy person because i'm legitimately bummed that you said you can't tweet through it due to lack of wireless at the hospital. yep, total nutjob.

    good luck! congrats in advance!

  7. Good luck Kenny and Staci. Hope all is/has gone well! My wife and I are due in March, and that's the first time I heard the "thought we were ready then felt unprepared" notion....but I can totally see how that would happen. :)

    Very exciting!

  9. Huh. I took a picture just like that at Christmas before I had my baby. Well - except I had a crystal "tattoo" that said Cutie on my belly too.

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

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

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 teac
