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.

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

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 teac

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
