Baby Turd

Who here has picked up a baby turd with their hands? Well, say hello to your newest member. Yesterday, while changing a dirty one, the dirty one fell out while rolling up the diaper. Leaving dada feeling alone and scared as he looked around frantically for Nicole. But alas, she was no where to be found. She was unable to hear my cries for help. So I took the "matter" into my own hand. Am I a good father? Yes. But a hero? Yeah, probably. I just did what needed to be done.

Other news, yes, we had a predicament earlier this week. Several spiders have been spotted around the house. 1 under maddox's crib, 1 under his changing pad and a couple in the hallway around his room. Some said brown recluse, but I'm no biology major. Really the only thing I am when it comes to spiders is a wuss major. I don't like them. They don't like me. But now that I'm a dad, and a husband, certain things are expected of me. So I killed them. I also called pest control services , and the price range for their mercenary services came in around $600 for Orkin and about the same for their local competition. No joke. So, for the record, I'm also a cheap-ass... so we sacrificed a little safety and well being by me taking matters into my own hands. I went to Lowe's and bought some stuff and already have found 2 spiders dead and no traces of their buddies anywhere. Scoreboard: Cody 4, Spiders 0. Deal with it spiders!

Maddox news, he's gotten so big. Almost 1 year old now. Where has the time gone? Here's a quick hit of his likes and dislikes.

  1. Socks (preferably mine)
  2. Cars. He likes to push them all around the house.
  3. Balls. He can actually throw the balls to me know. He's been able to for the past few weeks. He's an animal. So far, he can throw a ball at about 2 miles/hour, but I expect this to increase with time.
  4. Swinging with dada or mama on a big boy swing. (Infant swing works too, but he likes it if we are with him.)
  5. Sliding down the slide with dada or mama, then climbing back up the slide on his own.
  6. Funny faces Nicole and I make at him.
  7. Cheese crackers.
  8. Handing us toys and grunting.
  9. Being on my shoulders while I'm moving around.


  1. Being left at daycare.
  2. Falling face first onto a hard surface (at daycare). Get it together Children's Choice!
  3. Fear of failure? Really, he's been great lately, so I'm out of dislikes so this one and the following ones are just fluff.
  4. Fear itself.
  5. Monsters.
  6. New York Yankees.
  7. Man-eating sharks.
  8. Disappointment.
  9. Gas prices.

That's all for now. Here's an update on the pictures. Hang in there... there's a lot of them.
