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.

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
