This week, SulliDad surpassed the 100 post mark on the blog.
It really has been fun. I love writing, sharing thoughts, giving my opinion and talking about my family. And, I appreciate all the great feedback on the blog, via text, on Facebook and through e-mail. That’s the best part–hearing from people on a variety of subjects. Since the inception, the site has received nearly 10,000 views! Thanks for reading and sharing.
The Marathon Man passed along a really interesting story from the NY Times mag on the moral life of babies. It’s a bit of a long read so give yourself 15 minutes or so. Trust me, your brain will spin while your reading it.
Then, I keep encountering the story about chocolate baby formula. We’ve been fortunate to be successful with Liam and breastfeeding. In fact, I was able to give Liam his first bottle today. That was very cool.
But the outrage from parents on chocolate formula is intriguing to me. It’s like anything else–and more so when it comes to infants–if you don’t like it, don’t use it and stick to what works. I say the more options, the better. It may help some children and in turn some parents. I know if it helped our lives, we’d try it.
Other firsts today include: our first walk in the stroller (new pix in the SulliAlbum on the right column of the home page), the inaugural meeting for Liam with his cousin Tess and Aunt Sarah and a visit from our very good friends Smitty and Tina. I’ve missed Tess-she is so cute and getting so old! Seeing her helps me try to enjoy every second of Liam because I can see how they grow up so fast. I also emptied the Diaper Genie for the first time today. Holy defecation. It was crappy.
Lastly, our great realtor Scott Curcio stopped over and dropped off some sweet UIC and Butler onesies to go along with a really great historical shot of our early 1900’s building that I’ve been craving. It is sweet.
Speaking of great shots, thanks to local photographer Brian Palm who also provided a really great photo of our building when it lied in disrepair. It really captures the demise of the South Water Market and to see it today is amazing.
