The kid tries some real food

his "what are you about to do to me" face

It's about that time. Our doctor told us that since MC F is tracking his bottle & our food and because he can sit well in a booster chair we could start to introduce him to some real food...well at least some semi-real food because he only gets watery rice cereal at this point.

And so the adventure begins...


When we got the spoon out he started to grab Staci's hand to get that spoon in his mouth...but once in he had no idea what to do with the cereal...like all kids his age. I'd say of the many spoonfuls he probably only swallowed a quarter teaspoon this first time out...


We know he'll do better as he figures it out...and we know what comes after that...more food and horrible diapers...yeah...

And if he doesn't dig the bland cereal I think we figured a way to get him interested...

  1. NHL used to love spicy food. We ate out once and I had some pretty spicy chili. He tried some and kept demanding more and more. Sometime around 2, though, his taste for spicy food flipped from love to hate. Now I threaten to dip his fingers in hot sauce if he doesn't keep them out of him mouth. I figure he'll either be broken of his bad habit or he'll develop a taste for spicy foods. Win-Win, right?

  2. When my son T was younger we were in a mexican restaurant and he insisted on having those carrots/pepper mix. We let him have it and he loved it. These pictures are too cute. I have to not even look at him b/c I feel my kids are way inferior with looks.

  3. Your photos are always fantastic. Besides sheer talent, what type of camera do you shoot with to create such good pics?

  4. I use a Canon 7D and in this case (and most others) I use the Sigma 24-70mm lens

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
