Jack is 2 Months Old

Hello, my name is Baby Jack. I  just had my two month doctors visit yesterday.  It was not fun!!  Well, I thought it would be fun at first because my doctor is a really nice man, but then some mean nurse lady came in at the end and gave me THREE SHOTS... right in my legs! On top of that they squirted a bunch of stuff in my mouth. Mommy says the stuff they put in my mouth was flavored like something called a grape (I agree with daddy that it should have just been milk flavored). Daddy says he's going to video tape the whole process next time because it was the saddest thing he has ever seen. If I have anything to say about it that will be the last time I ever get shots (sorry daddy)!

So here are my stats:

Height (Length)- 23.75 inches (80th percentile)
Weight- 11.4 lbs (50th percentile)
Head Circumference- 15.75 inches (50th percentile)

I guess I really am tall for my age.  I have almost outgrown my 3 months clothes.  I was really surprised to see that I have a normal sized head after looking at my parents' heads!  In short, I am a perfectly healthy baby boy.

Lately I have been smiling up a storm.  I'm still working on the cooing thing- I think I've almost got it.  I have also been doing a lot of tummy time (mommy forces me every morning despite my protests!) and I seem to be able to hold my (normal sized) head up a little bit better every day.

Well, it's almost nap time.  See you later!

The Fire Has Been Put Out

It had to happen at some point, has been decommissioned. Don't worry though, all of the content was moved to (you can view under the "media" category, 104 posts total). came about one night as a result of some smartass banter between Courtney and I. I said something in jest to Courtney (not even sure what at this point) and she replied back "Mega Fire On Your Face Bitch"! After we finished laughing I promptly bought the domain name without knowing what I would even do with it. It turned into to our photo-and-video-only blog and I really enjoyed how easy it was to post something (not to mention it looked cool)!

MegaFireOnYourFace, you will be missed. :(

Don't forget to update your feed reader! The site will redirect to until the domain expires (which will cause double posts in your feed reader if you don't unsubscribe from

New Website!

Hey everybody, we have a new blog site:

I imagine your first question would be, "Why are you doing this Brian, you have 15 zillion websites already?"

Well, that is a good question. Recently we launched to showcase the birth of our first child (Baby Jack). Courtney and I had also been talking about getting a new blog site URL that wasn't as cynical as is our attempt to combine both domains into something more grown up (and easier to digest).

I'll be playing with the theme as time goes on but I bought the domain for 5 years and I am sticking with it!

The other two domains are going away eventually so please remember to update your bookmarks and feeds.

Learning to Laugh

Jack starting giggling today! Naturally the good ones were not caught on tape, but we did get a little something:

It all started by doing his favorite thing... helping him stand (he has to do most of the work) and saying Whooooooooooaaah! For some reason that always tickles him. Today, however, we got something a little more than a smile, he started letting out little giggles. I hope they stick around!

Attention Grandparents: You can download it from here for the next two weeks.

When Jack was born he came complete with his own website! The website was eventually merged into but I thought I'd go ahead and include a screenshot and copy of the guest book for historical purposes. :)
