Miloh's 1st quarter of his first year in numbers.

I've always had a thing for numbers, which is why I do these infographics, but I haven't taken a math class since the second day of senior year of high school. At the time I was given a small math problem and here it is: Kenny can get college credit for a math class or he can drop the class and go home early because it's his last class of the day.

I chose wisely. And all my teachers said I would need math in my later life. It can be argued that I used it all the time in photography...in fact in college I wrote a paper on how photography is math in order to get out of my math credits (I had a ton of science credits, including astrophysics so it wasn't like I was a slacker.) But really the teachers were wrong...I don't need to use math because I have a sister who is  Statistics and Math Professor at Ohio State University. If I have a math question she's only 10 digits away (she would probably want me to point out that it's actually 11 digits because of the 1)


So when I wanted to come up with some stats for Miloh's Q1 of Year One she helped me out...so in a way this is a bit of a guest post from her. I should note that I added some stats of my own, based on equations she gave me, but if any percentage is wrong here it's me that got it wrong not her.

  1. I love this! I love infographics and data tracking. My biggest design crush is Nicholas Felton. And my favorite thing to design (and I'm now making a living designing wedding invitations) is the financials section in an annual report.

  7. I have ideas planned out for the whole first year (I'm thinking 2 more styles of them...maybe more if I get bored) but I'd love away to figure out how to continue forever. How many times he tells me I'm not funny, How many times we embarrass him and all that stuff.

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.

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…
