About 3 pounds of hair gone

I set out to lose a certain amount of weight before cutting my beard, and then I decided that it would be when I finished a certain task and then it just had to wait until Jen and Ben arrived. Well Jen and Ben are here, so it was time. After growing out my beard for real starting in September I have trimmed it down to just a slight dusting instead of the full on homeless beggar beard. It feels good and a lot sad to see it go but it was time. What do you think?

Less here but more over there

You may have noticed that the posts on this blog have been a bit sparse lately. If so you are very astute, if not then carry on as usual there is nothing to see here. I have been doing a lot more writing at a new website that I have created called Stay At Home Dad Portland. This new website is a blog that is targeted to the folks that dig the daddy bloggers scene and who are interested in hearing tales of parenting from a dads point of view, in this case me. It has been more and more successful with comments on nearly every post and more readers each day. The content is still about Finn, Henry, Ian, Beautiful, and I but it is little more anonymous. Written for bigger audience than this blog was meant to reach. I will still be posting here with videos, pictures, and other stuff but it will continue to be sparse for a while. Please come over to to check out the new site if you are interested in getting more frequent posts. Thank you all so much for continuing to support my narcissistic need to be heard and if you just want videos of the boys without reading all that other stuff that's alright too. Again thanks

Want my job? this could be you

It has been a rough morning here in sunny Portland because the boys woke up too early. Henry is well entrenched in his terrible two mode and every toy on the planet is his. Finn was playing with a stroller left discarded for while and Henry caught sight and pitched a fit. Enjoy Finn playing keep away as any loving brother would.

It's a puffy vest no pants day

It's a puffy vest no pants day, originally uploaded by gylcol.

Sometimes you have one of those days where pants are optional but a puffy vest is called for. Finn had one of those days last week and it was a magical time for him. He wouldn't take the vest off and had no need for pants.

happy birthday henry ellis

Henry turned two this weekend and you missed it. Well maybe you didn't miss it but I did. He was spending the weekend with Grandma and Papa while Mommy and Daddy got there drink on and watched the Lakers kick the ______ out of the local, lovable Blazers. Not sure if this will stick with him but it is good that he learns early what basketball means to daddy. I mean the kid will be two for a whole year but seeing this game is once a year chance. That is all a load of crap cause we had to leave right from the game to go see Henry on his birthday. We left at about 9:30 to make the hour drive, get the little man out of his bead and snuggle with him. We brought him to bed with us and paid for missing the party by having him kick us in the back all night long. Payback feels like a ball pin hammer to the lower back but it was great to have him close. Happy birthday Henry, you are super cute and have a terrible scream that you rely on way to much and I love you madly.

a young bad blake

Another video for you not because you asked but because I know what you want. My favorite part has to be when he says good night to the beer. That's my boy!

giraffes giraffes giraffes

Finn has been getting back into his guitar but his song writing has taken a bit of a hit. Not sure if he has writers block or if he's just running up against the limitations of his 3 year old vocabulary. We went to the zoo on Wednesday and he composed a little dity about it above. Enjoy.
