Bins and bins of baby clothes

The basement. Like the warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, it is a sea of forgotten memories. Some that elicit the light of joy, while others are best left forgotten, begging the question of why we hung onto them in the first place. We’ve been in our current house for sixContinue reading “Bins and bins of baby clothes”

Three

Three years. How quickly they go by. It seems like only yesterday I cradled you in my arms, swaddled in a blanket covered in baby footprints, wondering how I was so lucky to get to welcome you into this world. When we brought you home, I never thought I could feel so exhausted again inContinue reading “Three”

A Headline of Some Importance this Mother’s Day (well, for us anyway)…

Here we go again. That media, making a big deal out of everything. Okay. It is kind of a big deal. 😉 Since we’re both pretty big fans of the satirical newspaper The Onion, this seemed like a natural approach for ‘the big reveal,’ as it were. Fortunately, our son turned out to have prettyContinue reading “A Headline of Some Importance this Mother’s Day (well, for us anyway)…”

Exit, Stage Right

Before our son was born, my wife and I were very active in community theatre. Heck, that’s even how we met, both cast in the same show many, many moons ago. We were both, whether separately or together, in usually two shows a year, but devoting a lot of our time to the theatre whereContinue reading “Exit, Stage Right”

He moves!!

It’s certainly been an interesting two weeks in the milestone department. Just about two weeks ago, our little guy suddenly went from just rolling around on the floor (something we have to be careful of in our living room, as the previous owners just threw very thin carpeting over hardwood, with no padding between), toContinue reading “He moves!!”

Color blind?

During one of our favorite weekend rituals (a cup of tea and watching CBS Sunday Morning), I came across this report that I really found interesting. I thought you might too: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50137957n (sorry. WordPress won’t allow me to directly embed the video, but please give it a click and a watch) It’s amazing to seeContinue reading “Color blind?”

Go slowly sands of time…

Time is moving by at an alarming rate. I am unable to fathom the speed with which the past nine months have flown by. It seems like only a week or so ago that it was Halloween night and we sat there, slightly late for our rehearsal of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at a localContinue reading “Go slowly sands of time…”

Woot Woot!

I have an obsession with the website, shirt.woot For those of you not in the know, shirt.woot is a website that allows artists to submit designs for a t-shirt, and web users vote on their favorites. Each week tends to revolve around a different theme, although you’ll find the occasional random design. The winning entriesContinue reading “Woot Woot!”

Social Butterfly

I think my wife thinks I’m too social sometimes. The other half the time, I’m sure I come off as a recluse or a grumpy old man, but sometimes, just sometimes, I get a little burst of excitement from meeting new people. We just completed our childbirth class, and in it we’ve come across aContinue reading “Social Butterfly”

Breastfeeding class

One of the things about the hospital that we’re registered at to have the baby is the multitude of “extra” educational offerings they provide. For the past six weeks or so, my wife, Meg, and I have been attending Childbirth Classes at the hospital one night a week, where we’ve learned all about the processContinue reading “Breastfeeding class”
