Random shorts

One:
Miloh hates the sound of velcro...he winces every time he hears it when we open his sleep sack or a diaper bag. 

Two:
My favorite thing he's doing right now is grabbing my finger while I feed him. He holds on so tight that his fingertips turn white...but of course it's a kind of soft grip. I love it.

I also like that when he wiggles he often makes a fist and kind of punches. He finally connected a few yesterday.

Three: 
Staci's favorite thing is that she can burp him by just rubbing his back instead of patting it...and she love that when she does this he lays his head right in the crook of her neck.

She also loves that he recognizes her...it's actually really cool that he recognizes us and our voices.

Four:
I got nothing for four.

Five:
Before Miloh was born I heard someone say "he's not as wrinkly as he was a week ago." I'm not sure of the context, it could have been TV, a tweet or a friend. But it's true about Miloh. I wish I had a picture to go along with that but I haven't taken photos in a few days...and that bums me out.

Six: 
We finally figured out the sleep thing. if you remember my Sweet Child O' Mine post we were having trouble a bit ago. I truly think my paradigm/stress level/attitude shift helped him calm down, but we also learned he has acid reflus so he's on meds for that. Plus we have a new routine that maybe I'll post about soon...but the gist is we now know how to get him to bed before he's over tires which for some reason makes him unable to sleep.

Seven:
Until yesterday either Staci or I would sleep in Miloh's room when it was our time on duty. Now we have a video and audio monitor on while we're downstairs or asleep etc. It's a bit freaky not being with him.

  1. I love it when my little one puts her head in the crook of my neck and when she breathes so close to my ear, well that makes me smile! Sounds like Milo is doing great!

  2. Enjoy all the snuggling now. My daughter is 7 months old and getting a cuddle from her is impossible. She's too busy checking everything out.

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…
