Random questions

Is there anything cuter than your kid taking your hand during dinner so he can lean on it and cuddle?

Why do kids, at least Miloh, think it's so hilarious to run around while I try to put lotion on him that he laughs until he can't breathe?

Why does our dog thinks it's a good idea to lick Miloh's pee off the carpet?

What would make a kid think you'd want a dried apricot that has been chewed, spit out, chewed and again and then spit out?

Is there anything better than cinnamon sugar?

Why is it hilarious that I eat the same food as Miloh?

How awesome is it when your kid washes your hair while you're giving them a bath?

Have you ever brought a book to bed?

  2. @rachel One day after we were changing him he decided to run all around... then stand in the middle of the room and pee.

  3. The only thing I've found cuter is having one child lovingly pat the other on the head when she's crying.

  4. Also, I've been following your blog through a feed catcher. Trying to read it on the blog is very hard because the text/background colors.

  6. @Justin thanks for the comment. Not sure why my feed would be coming up weird. It should be black type on white. There are two feeds for the blog:

    and

  7. It looks great on the feed. It's when I try to read it on your page itself. I don't get the white background.

  8. I once fell asleep on a copy of "Hand Hand Finger Thumb" and I swear there were book shaped sleep lines on my face for three hours.

  10. @Marcie thanks for asking. I haven't updated officially but did in some comment. Any way it's much better. Once we separated them in the day and since Miloh is walking better and at school in the day there is a ton less fear from Kalli towards MIloh.

    They're becoming buddies again.

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
