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.

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…
