I wasn't planning on writing an article today but instead doing some research on how to make it easier for me to post videos here. I use the Sublime service to provide videos using the html5 video tag and host the files myself. The problem is going from that nice, but very large, video that I shot on my iPhone and coming up with a lighter version you see here. Usually this is a huge pain involving at least four different (...)
I was commenting the other night to my wife that I look forward to the time when our son is a little more, shall we say, interactive. Yeah, that is a good way to put it. We are still in the lull after the initial onslaught of, "There is a new tiny human in our house." I'm sure any parent knows what I am talking about.
It really is like that. You (...)
Before anyone gets the wrong idea, James did not have to get admitted, we just had to get another renal scan. This time it was a DTPA to be sure (doubly, tripley I've lost count) that the renal reflux (...)
It is really nice watching James learn to learn to talk. You know, just figuring out that the tongue and the mouth and all the bits connected seem to have more importance than just eating with. I didn't realize how much fun this was going to be to see firsthand. There are times he will just sit there and try to maneuver his tongue for, oh I don't know, to see if it will fall out if he sticks it out to far? Who knows what (...)
It has been awhile since I sat to write. No reason really. Well, nothing that can be pointed at and blame set at the feet of. It is just that parenting is a full time job, especially when learning as you go. Nothing that can't be handled, it just takes time and effort. Lots and lots of effort. So let me dust off the keyboard and get out the camera. It is time to play catch up.
JAMES!!! Lets get a nice (...)
Before I get back to writing about what I love (and getting off this two month vacation) I decided to update to the latest software and make more improvements to the way things are seen on this blog. In doing so I may have broken all the RSS links. This is just a test post to see if it still shows up in my feed reader or not.
I hope everyone is (...)
At a time when our boy is wavering between happy go lucky and sleeping like a champ to grouchy and not wanting to nap to save his parent's lives it is always nice to see something new that is light and full of joy.
Yes, the first real laughter...
It came between some (...)

We started our day out normally. Some good natured yelling from James to come get him out of bed after a pretty good night sleep. The usual coffee for me and some stories to James about how his milk really isn't ready until the thing on the stove says so. He kept pointing out the fact that the light was off and the coffee maker had nothing to do with his breakfast.
Kids. What do they know...(...)
As any new parent knows the sleeping habits of an infant can change from week to week. When it really gets violent is when they vary wildly from day to day. This is how things have been around the house here. Just as my wife and I were commenting on how James had decided to sleep through the night he decided to add a curve ball to the mix and try to stay awake most of the day. Now, to say stay awake is a bit of a misnomer. It (...)
