Don’t wait (a must see)

Follow me on Twitter / Be my friend on Facebook

I’ve been learning important lessons with my first child. One of which being not to wait. When your kid does something that you want to remember, don’t be lazy and wait for the next time. I’ve missed a couple of awesome things that Clive grew out of because I figured I’d shoot or film it later. Big mistake. Some little things they’ll just never do again.

Case in point, Clive fake coughing on command. I ALMOST didn’t video it. I figured I’d do it next time. Well, as much as he was doing it, there wasn’t ever a next time. I got really lucky. For some reason, I figured “I should video this right now just in case…” And I’m glad I did. This might be a stupid thing that only looks cute to a parent, but for whatever reason I think this is one of the cutest/funniest things I’ve ever seen.

Meg - AWWWW He's so precious!May 19, 2011 - 11:39 pm

Katie Lewis - I just love that kid!! :)May 20, 2011 - 12:25 am

Richelle - OMG, That is so funny! I was seriously laughing out loud. I've never seen a baby do a fake cough! He's very talented. :)May 20, 2011 - 12:51 am

Astami - awww! too cute!!May 20, 2011 - 6:38 am

Jenny Rodriguez - That's so funny! My son did the same thing when he was about Clive's age. He thought it was so fun to cough and went through this phase for about a month. I always felt paranoid bringing him around other kids and to mom's groups though because I thought maybe other parents would think he really was sick and I just didn't mind if I shared all his germs. Kids are so funny!May 20, 2011 - 7:43 am

Chrissy D - OMG, I CANNOT handle how cute he is!!!!May 20, 2011 - 12:06 pm

Andrew Fleming - SO rad! I've missed a few things that Temple did before and now just simply doesn't do anymore. I got on video us having a staring contest, I think Em has it on her FB. Anyway, it's one of the most priceless things we have on video and even more so because this one face that she was making at me to get me to laugh, it's like a bug-eyed wide open mouth face, she doesn't do anymore. It's awesome to get moments like this on video. How rad will it be to show Temple one day her and I having a staring contest when she was a year old! :)May 23, 2011 - 1:28 pm

My New Film Scanner!

Follow me on Twitter / Be my friend on Facebook

So I just bought the Canon Canoscan 9000F. I started last night scanning some old photos. Here’s a couple I’ve found so far…


January 4th, 2003. I’m 20 years old. Lindsay is 21. I’ve only scanned 8 images from the actual ceremony — I’m excited to get through the rest :D


Garrett boning out a backside flip. This is sometime in 2004, I bet. It looks like there’s texture photoshopped in… but that’s only because the negatives were damaged :)

So far, it seems like an awesome purchase. It was $175 after tax and shipping on Amazon. And I would have had to pay WAAAAY more if I wanted to have some lab do it for me. Of course, they would have done a better job, I imagine, but I figured I’d take the gamble and if the scanner sucks really bad, just sell it. I’m only a few negatives in, but I’ve scanned both 35mm negatives and slides and it seems more than decent. I’ll probably do a more lengthy review in a couple weeks once I’m finished :)

Átria Velz - awesome pix! can't wait to see more &hear ur review of the scanner.May 18, 2011 - 12:00 am

Ali Bonano - I want to see all your wedding pictures! I remember Lindsay said she was "fat" when you all got married...Uhm she has an absurd definition of fat! :)May 18, 2011 - 12:00 am

Shawna Forslin Shockley - they look greatMay 18, 2011 - 12:00 am

Mark - I have the predecessor 8800F, they're great! I use it mainly for scanning trannys for web use...it scans them very good...not a patch on a drum scanner, but for 175 bucks, can you really complain!!May 18, 2011 - 7:24 am

Babyface?

Follow me on Twitter / Be my friend on Facebook

I posted this on my instagram yesterday, which then went to my twitter and facebook. My only response from almost everyone on all three fronts was “Lindsay looks normal and you look like a little kid standing on a phone book for a picture!” I thought I looked totally normal :P

She’s 22 and I’m 21. This is January of 2004. For our 1 year anniversary, we backpacked all over Europe from the end of December to the middle of March. It was one of the best experiences of my life — and without that trip I would have never become a photographer :)

As cute as Lindsay looked at 22, she’s even better looking now. Which is crazy since she just had a baby and is a few months shy of 30!

Adrianne Hilts - Well, you definitely look older here than you did in High School.. So I will have to say, no, you don't look like a kid here. :)May 16, 2011 - 12:00 am

Clive update :)

Follow me on Twitter / Be my friend on Facebook

So after a terrible Wednesday and Thursday (which were both already following a fairly difficult couple of weeks)., Clive finally had a breakthrough! Yesterday (Thursday) he screamed in serious pain again. But this time, thanks to one of my awesome commenter’s advice on liquid glycerin, he finally got out what he had been trying to get out.

It was insane.

Keep in mind, we have had our 7 month old for… well… 7 months :) And much of that has seen him with trouble pooping. We’ve had him go over a week without poop. He’s strained and been in pain before. But nothing like this.

Without getting to graphic, he pooped out three giant stone poops. Each was just as difficult as the one preceding it. And this is graphic, but we both watched (in anguish) his poor little bottom open so much wider than we could have imagined. It looked extremely similar to childbirth. He was screaming with each one — it was painful to watch — but we were just so relieved that he was actually passing something.

After three big ones, we could tell there were still more. But he clearly didn’t want to try anymore. We gave him a break.

He slept probably double the amount he normally sleeps in the day. I think he was simply worn out.

Later that evening, he was pushing again. His face wasn’t turning red. It was turning purple. We grabbed another liquid suppository and in about 30 seconds he cried, screamed, and pushed out another rock. Then the rest started coming out much, much easier. The next just looked like an adult amount of poop. He was so incredibly backed up. Looking at everything, I just didn’t see how all of that was fitting inside of him.

The good news is that toward the end, his poop started looking normal. It wasn’t rock hard. So I think he’ll be sitting much more easily now. He was just backed up for a while. Totally blocked.

Let’s see if I can blog about something other than poop next week, huh? :)


I think this is how sweet life is after being so backed up and finally getting relief :)

Greg Loza - Wow! Good to hear that he is doing better. I can't imagine my 4 month old son going through that. Hope it's all behind you guys now.May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Janine Kaye - hey Bobby, my daughter suffered with constipation as a baby..big rocks or little pebbles, and then occasionally a normal one. I ended up seeing a paediatrician and she went on something called Duphalac.. we have it here in Oz and I am sure you could get something similar in the states. It just loosened them up but her bowel didn't become reliant on it. She started taking it from 4 months of age and she improved out of sight within weeks. something to try anyway... not sure if you have already...May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Shawna Forslin Shockley - liquid glycerin is a lifesaver, had to use that with my first until she was almost 2May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Juhl Villareal - go clive!May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Rebecca Ann - haha! what a CUTIE PIE!! Miss this face and you guys too! :)May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Gilda Adler - liquid glycerin is great but some kids develop hemorrhoids so keep that in mind. prevention is key with everything. talk to your ped before sticking things in his little tush. he'd probably ok clive for yo-baby (organic yogurt). that stuff is healthy and yummy. eric started yogurt at 6months old and has it everyday. never constipated again.May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Valerie A. Greene - He is such a beautiful little boy sorry he had such a had time but he looks absolutely releived now YEAH!!!May 13, 2011 - 12:00 am

Ashley - I totally feel your relief knowing he has his =)Been there several time over the past 2 years. Broke my heart everytime since all you can do is hold them during those points =(May 13, 2011 - 5:51 am

Holly - SO glad it worked for him ... that stuff is amazing, isn't it?! It's also a natural substance (meaning no bowel stimulants involved) so it's not habit-forming in any way. You can also use it prophylactically if he hasn't had a BM in awhile in order to avoid the rock hard stools in the first place. A happy baby=happy parents. :-) Yay, Clive! :-)May 13, 2011 - 8:23 am
