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.

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…
