Sorry for the delay (I hope I didn’t scare anyone) - I happened to leave my camera cable at the office and have no good way to upload the new ultrasound photo. In my refusal to update without an accompanying photo I kept searching for solutions (and also being distracted by tennis) until I realized [...]
It’s my favorite time of year - the 2 weeks of the U.S. Open that seamlessly bleed into the kickoff of the NFL season (Go EAGLES!!!). I’m kicking it at home for the week to do very little except run, write music, do a couple of interviews and, for 14 hours a day, watch tennis.
In my inaugural blog post, way back in January 2007, I wrote about the infertile curse of Pottery Barn Kids. Constance and I, not the type of people to jump the gun on making purchases for an unknowable future, fell in love with a nursery set and ordered it from the catalog. That was the [...]
Perhaps it is mere coincidence, but I prefer to think of it as an abominable revenge scheme authored by my vengeful loving friend, Kyle.
About sixty minutes prior to Constance and my nuptials six years ago, Kyle took a short walk around the tiny town square in my hometown, during which time his calf was drafted [...]
Surprised? Not really. It was more like relief as we found ourselves increasingly anxious about the possibility of triplets, which would mean initiating a Netflix-style service by which our friends would sign up on our baby queue to receive a new child by mail each week. Seeing as there barely is room for twins in [...]
No rational or irrational human being should attempt to eat a peanut butter cookie the size of a Frisbee and, after celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary yesterday, this is something to which I can attest personally. I have a cookie problem and like the blue furry monster of my youth, if there is a cookie [...]
To find oneself trapped in a parking garage in Chicago’s River North neighborhood at 7AM is a pox on the entire rest of the day, or at least it was for me. Flexibility at the behest of staying on schedule is a tough one for me because I plan my days down to the wire [...]
In the land of infertility, waiting becomes less of an annoyance than it is a state of being. We’re still infertile, even though now we’re pregnant, which means that state of being remains our modus operandi for all things reproductive. For those who don’t know, an IVF pregnancy is not treated like a normal pregnancy [...]
I have more than a sneaking suspicion there are two babies currently growing inside of my baby mama. Above all, Constance already has begun a physical transformation. A hair shy of five weeks and she’s got a noticeable, small bump, plus she has felt “it doing stuff” on both sides of her uterus. Google pictures [...]
The tan duvet cover was pulled up under my bristly chin as one of my favorite episodes of “King of the Hill” played in the background. Constance and I both were laying on our left sides, spooning and laughing – laughing not at the dry, Americana wit of our favorite television clan, but because laughing [...]
