More observations


Miloh gets it...he's really starting to figure out the world, how to play in it and how to manipulate it.

He's figured out that we're not fans of when he cries...he tries to use that to his advantage. One night when putting Miloh to bed his pacifier fell out right away and he started crying. We aren't ones to put it back in every time it drops but since it was right away I placed it in. He calmed himself, took it out, looked at me and started crying.

I thought it was just coincidence that he looked at me beforehand...but then I put the pacifier back into his mouth...he did the same thing. He looked straight at me, took out the pacifier and started crying...I knew what was up and left the room...he stopped crying after a minute.

He's also crawling like a madman...he was rolling with purpose for a bit...he'd see something turn and roll to it. Now he crawls like crazy...and with purpose.

He and Kalli, or dog, flank our cat Zoggs and attack him from the sides. This happens often...Miloh is  a bit too slow to get to Zoggs on his own. It's weird how Kalli and him team up like this.

He figured how to get his diapers off...if he's in a disposable and he isn't immediately shoved into pants we're screwed...diaper is off.

Even with some of the cloth diapers he can get the velcro off...he hasn't figured out buttons so we're good with Fuzzi Bunz.

And he's a bit cocky. People come up to him and say he's cute...he then looks at them and raises one eyebrow...I can't freaking raise one eyebrow. Then he acts coy and puts his foot in his mouth.

It's really weird to see a super young kid with such a personality...I guess this is normal but if you're been reading from the start you know a) before Miloh I've barely been around babies and b) kids freak me out.

This little dude is pretty cool...pretty smart and therefore pretty dangerous.

  1. Our son loves attention from everyone. You can see the disappointment in his face when we are in a store and someone walks by without talking to him.

  2. Haha, that all sounds very familiar. This is when it really starts to get fun, when he is able to move around and interact with you. Enjoy it, savor it, cherish it and always keep a camera very handy. Good times, good times.

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…
