Gear Thursday: awesome custom onesies

This is hands down one of my favorite pieces of clothing that Miloh has...in fact he wore it for over 24 hours the first time we put it on him (that's when the picture is from...so it's a couple weeks old.)

It was made by Emily from Baby Dickey. She takes your old tees and makes them into great gown style onesies.

I sent her an Iron Maiden shirt that no longer fit...washed it 3 times and it became a tube top...but don't worry I still wore it with a thermal underneath. Then a bit later I got this in the mail.
Here's a short list of why these rock:
  • They are one of a kind because they come from your shirt
  • Emily's sewing skills rock...the quality is fantastic
  • You know how the onesie will feel a bunch of washes in because you've washed the shirt many times
  • It doesn't shrink because you've washed the shirt many times
  • It just freaking rocks and I shouldn't have to say anything else.

Really the only thing I don't like about these are that I donated a bunch of awesome old shirts before I found out that she did this...they would have made awesome onesies.

What you're gonna want to do is head to the custom onesie page of her site and order one now. All the details are the but here are some basics.

The first onesie is $20 but if you send her a bunch of shirts the price goes down for the additional ones.

An adult medium is needed to guarantee a long-sleeve gown, size 0-6 months. She can work with a smaller shirt, but it may need to be short-sleeve or not fit as long (as it will most likely be shorter in length).

I don't know what else I need to say about these because they just really rock.

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
