A bunch of awards

One of the cool things about doing a blog is finding other great blogs out there...but even better is when some other bloggers find you and recognize yours as one that they dig.

In the last few weeks I was given 4 blog awards by fellow bloggers. It has taken me awhile to get this post together so I apologize to them for the late thank you. But here it is, thanks Cynthia from First Time Mom 2 Be, Brandy from Bigger By the Belly, Lauren from With Two Cats and Metta1313 from 365 Days of Being 30 and a Mommy.

So each one of these awards says I should do a different thing as far as how many blogs to link to and what I should share, so I thought I'd average out the stuff and share it below. Sorry to do it this way but I'm a bit sleep deprived so I'm being lazy. My apologies to the good folks that gave me the awards.

I'm gonna share 5 things that make me happy and 5 blogs I dig. Those bloggers can choose whichever award they like and pass that one along.

5 things that make me happy:
Staci's smile.
Miloh's cooing.
Snowboarding.
My scooter.
My dingo.

5 blogs I dig (these are ones I haven't mentioned in previous posts)
Parenting in Progress written by Mae. Good stuff (her dad even likes it) and her tweets rock.
Last Train to Pooksville by Emily. All you need to know is her kid is a genius.
Kristi Maristi written by, you guessed it, Kristi. She has purple hair right now.
Hope Springs Eternal by Natalie. Her baby Nellie is 2 days older than Miloh.
Beyond Snapshots by Rachel Devine and Peta Mazey. Great info on photographing kids, although it makes me feel guilty that I haven't taken pics of Miloh as much as I'd like.

And if you want to get a glimpse of what I do from 9-5 and see things that inspire me you can check out my other blog.

  3. Thanks so much Kenny! You're such a cool dude and I love reading about all of your adventures. Also, Miloh's cuteness is definitely affecting our sibling spacing plans.

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

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
