Opening scene to Miloh's episode of Cribs

This is is pretty much how every morning goes when we walk into Miloh's room. I had to cut it short short because a stray roach was walking around.

Update: to answer Lauren's question. This is the Cliff Notes version of how this started happening.

First thing is the floor bed should actually be called a bed floor. He often crawls out of his bed to sleep. Less now but he did a lot in the beginning.

And at first he'd crawl towards the door wanting to get out and he'd fall asleep right at the door. There were a couple clunks until we started opening the door super slowly.

Sometimes it took us awhile to open it. He could be right at the door and we had to nudge him out...slide a hand through and move him.

Then as he got older he tried to open the door...but sadly he often shut it. He'd open it ever once in awhile but it was a fluke.

But now that he's super old he gets how to open it. Most mornings he wakes around 6:20 and plays in his room for 15-30 minutes. We hear him clunking toys and talking.

Then when he wants us to get him he goes to the door and either kicks it or hits it. We hear the knocking head to his room and open the door a bit.

Then I think he backs up for us to open it...or on a lot of days for him to get the door.


  1. hahah nice, stray roach. what a cutie! you have inspired us to do a floor bed for our 1 year old once he has his own room, what a great idea.

  2. Holy cow, Miloh is the CUTEST BABY EVER! Also, you don't sound how I'd expected at all!

  3. Dang roaches, being all stray and stuff! LMAO!

  4. Roaches? Dude, that's nothing. ;) Check out the dead rat post on Becoming Sarah. So did you always realize Miloh may be right by the door or was there that morning that you opened it and...clunk. $#%@! LOL. By the way he is super cute.

  5. Lauren I added a bit to the post to answer your question. thanks

  6. I expected to see two roaches. Very cute. Miloh, not so much the roaches.

  7. For anyone who has questions on floor bed, please let me know. Kenny does a great job of explaining it and I am always there to help with set up for new parents.

    I have to admit waking up to the sound of Miloh playing on his own, giggling and babbling is amazing. Then when he hears that we are up, he goes to the door and knocks. It is wonderful. And when the door opens, the smile is like no other. It makes for the best way to wake up. Even as we get used to early mornings with our darling.

    PS we would never have roaches. I will make damn sure of it.

  8. He's so nonchalant about chillin in the entryway. Love the idea of a floor bed... it'd probably help my kid to quit losing limbs in crib bars. But we have lots of roaches around our house so we'd better not.

    Following you on twitter now. I'm a new tweeter.

  9. He is so stinkin' cute. He and Nellie take the same pacis, except Nellie's are pink. Naturally.

  10. Thank goodness the roach didn't fall on his head. Whew!

    I'm really thankful that I bumped into your blog when I did. We have a 6-month old who finally out grew her Moses basket. (I think you guys call it a layette?) We've moved her onto a floor bed in our room (she isn't sleeping through the night yet). Once she's more or less making it the full night we'll move her into her brother's room (they'll be sharing). I love the idea of the floor bed and so far things are going great. An added bonus is that our house is tiny (as they all are over here) and so the idea of having a bed AND a crib in the 2nd bedroom meant there would be no floor space. So the unexpected benefit of having a floor bed in there means that it will be an area both kids can play on, instead of a big box taking up space.

    Thanks for being brave and taking all the sh!t from people.

  11. I love me some Miloh. This is hilarious.

  12. Lauren I added a bit to the post to answer your question. thanks

  13. Holy cow, Miloh is the CUTEST BABY EVER! Also, you don't sound how I'd expected at all!

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
