Random thoughts: goings ons and stuff

One: Staci went back to work today...I know it won't be easy for her. A bit ago I did a post about finding a day care provider. We actually backed out of that in-home day care and instead will have a family friend watch Miloh at our house. Miloh already knows her and this will makes things much easier for us.

Two: I swear to the Cocoa Puff bird that Miloh say's 'Hi.' He really does. I know he's not saying it like we say it...he doesn't know what it means but he says it. What makes it better is he's said it after I said hi.

I also felt like I heard him say 'Kenny' once but I was super sleepy at the time.

Three: I tried to get a 'hi' on video but I got nothing...well I got some smiles. So that the few minutes of him not saying 'hi' adds to the hours of video of him not rolling over (he's done it at least 3 times but refuses to do it on camera except for the first one.

Four: Little dude screams like crazy when he's hungry and there is no bottle in him. Before he would just cry a bit for a bottle and maybe get fidgety when we burped him. Now he goes nutso if we burp him while feeding...all hell breaks loose. But I hear this is normal

It's also weird that he cries tears. This started happening a bit ago but I don't think he had tears the first few weeks. The tears only add to the guilt/devestation of a wail even if we know they're not because he's upset.

Five: Below is the video of some smiles, but sadly no 'hi' other than mine in a falsetto that I was hoping would make him happy. Notice that in the end he tries to hit me...just saying. Also I know that last time I said my next video would be of him staring at a grape...this is pretty much the same thing.



Six: Staci and I have developed a bit of a Keurig addiction...we got a machine for our home. It kind of sucks because there is a lot of waste, but I try to use the thing where you use your own beans. Plus it's probably less waste than a cup and lid from a coffee house. Plus the coffee is good.

Normal drip coffee makes me sleepy. I once heard, from Laird Hamilton in an interview, that drip coffee has less antioxidants and more toxins in it than espresso because of the amount fo time the water sits on the grounds. I'm thinking Keurig is closer to espresso in that respect because the water is pushed through the grounds quickly. Either way it tastes good and I don't get sleepy.

  2. I swear that I hear milo say stuff all the time. Like I asked him if he was done eating breakfast this morning? and I swear to anything he said "i dont know". He does put a few syllables together, but, I know its not possible. Weirds me out sometimes though.

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

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

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
