Gear Thursday: Cloud B Twilight Turtle



If you read my Random Shorts post a few days ago you may remember that we have a new routine that we've been doing to get Miloh to sleep. One of the things that we bought to help is this Twilight Turtle nightlight. I'm not even exaggerating when I say this is one of the best things ever...it's so cool and soothing that Staci and I want to get one for our room...

It's actually rather simple but so nice. It's a soft turtle with a hard plastic shell. On the shell are cutouts of constellations...so when you turn the lights on the constellations shine throughout the room. You can change the color of the lights to green, blue or amber. The green and blue are the brightest and it's reminiscent of those glow in the dark stars but a lot less hassle and a lot less permanant.

It's incredibly soothing and it shuts off in 45 minutes just as your baby (hopefully) falls asleep.

One thing I'm really digging is that 8 real constellations shine on your ceiling and walls...I think that will be cool for Miloh when he's older...it will be a learning tool.

There are two other styles of night light including a lady bug and a  sea turtle, which is even cuter than this turtle and which some of the money goes to a conservation charity.

  2. I got this and the sleep sheep at the same time. Elise doesn't seem very interested in it. I didn't know it shows real constellations though. Interesting!

  3. I wrote this post 2 days ago...but I should add that yesterday when I turned it on at night Miloh instantly started looking at the stars (in what I thought was amazement but you never know)

  5. We have this same turtle. I Love it. Except its out of batteries right now. Its nicer to look at than a regular night lite. We have both though cause I feel bad for Milo when he wakes up and the room is pitch black. I love looking at the constellations and trying to figure them out!

  6. another great baby item for getting them to go to bed is the fisher price lullaby seahorse. it's cheap and babies adore it, plus the thing glows like the glowworms we had as kids- so when you take it in the car, you can use it as a nightlight to check on them in the dark. bonus!

    this is my first time on your blog, love it, your kiddo is adorable. plus i love the "now with baby" at the top. lol

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…

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…

Update post

An unexpected side affect of writing this blog is that I was introduced to the world of baby blogs. Totally didn't expect it, but since most of my readers are pregnant women or moms it makes sense.

There is some great stuff out there. One of the blogs I'm digging is the818.com by Morgan. Great, real look at pregnancy with some cool design stuff too.

She does a weekly update on what's going on with her and her pregnancy. All those questions that folks would ask.

But since men aren't the ones doing the hard work no one asks us what's up with us.

I thought it would be fun to answer her update questions from a male point of view. So here goes:


How far along? Officially 22 weeks and 4 days, but since I know a little more about math and the female body than every doctor I know that it's really closer to 20.

Total weight gain/loss: Down 3 pounds...sorry.

Stretch marks? I always had these little ones on my ankles...I think they are from when I grew to a enormous 5'6&q…
