Recently Conner received a few gifts from some of my long time friends, of which he seems to love the xylophone the most ( it is now his favorite toy ).
Conner has mastered walking but needs to work on running, and is getting used to falling & “face planting”. He rarely cries after such falls unless of course you are looking, thus when he does fall the ... read more
Conner is now 14 months old, he is walking, he is exploring, and he is interacting.Tue, March 3, 2009 - 1:43 PM permalink - 0 comments
Recently Conner has become very protective of his mommy. If I rest my head on his mommy's shoulder or if his mommy and I start kissing ( as a husband and wife sometimes do), Conner will come over, but his hand on my face and push me away.
This is really sort of cute and, from what I have read, totally normal.
Conner gave his mommy and daddy a scare yesterday; he pulled a small part of a label off a water bottle and ate it. He coughed for a second, his mom was somewhat panicked for a while, I was not as panicked (if he is screaming i know he is breathing ).Sat, February 14, 2009 - 7:42 PM permalink - 2 comments
As his mom held him upsidedown, he was able to swallow it before I was able to stick fingers down his throat.
Conner was fine, mostly just shaken up by the actions of his mommy & daddy; he is no longer allowed to play with empty water... read more
When it is raining or too cold out, instead of going to a playground, my son and I will sometimes head to a local café and share a steamed milk and fresh Croissant together.Thu, January 29, 2009 - 11:30 AM permalink - 0 comments
While the conversation is sparse, we do enjoy each others company.
May 10, 2008Wait,
WHAT THA FUCK!!!??!?!
I know we gots some catchin' up to do, an' I haven't 'xactly been around much, but I sure as Hell don't expect to stumble across the blawgg of Evil Pete Shipley and find...
...All this CRAZY TALK about how fatherhood changes you and how Evil Pete Shipley has allegedly somehow acquired a baby and is taking it for walks to the park and what-not?
Though I am stunned, I must say, "Way to go, man!"
Far too many of the males in our culture choose to make babies without ever choosing to be fathers.
Two of the great tragedies of the 20th Century, which haunt us even now, are the fact that the North American male figured out he could abandon his family and get away with it, and that our courts and welfare institutions at some point began to actively conspire against the idea of fathers sticking around, so much so that for many dads, walking away was just the path of least resistance.
Sure, it's probably a no-brainer to Mr. Shipley, and the thought of doing anything other than being a parent to his kid was simply out of the question.
Just the same, I have this habit I've developed: Whenever I see a boy who's young, crazy, or dark enough to be one of my peers, and he's chosen to do the right thing and be a MAN, well, I tend to acknowledge him for it.
January 4, 2005Pete is a real sweetheart. He doesn't lie when he says hes a troublemaker OR gives you plum wine and tells you to watch out for the hangover. He's adorable
June 3, 2004(Evil) Peter Shipley is not evil, really. He is actually really nice and courteous, shy sometimes, and really smart.
March 20, 2004About the talented Mr. Shipley - it's quite simple. Pete is good *and* Pete is evil. If you pass muster, you get to live, and live well you shall. If you're an ass, or judged and found wanting, you get crushed under the jackboot heel of indifference. Pete's soul is as deep and open as a well to those who qualify, but his wrath is as equally deep and boundless to those deserving of it - for Pete's foo has few equals in many disciplines. However, for all of this quiet ferocity, Pete maintains his gentleman's poise; impeccably urbane, polite, dangerous, and carefully cultivated. It was once said of Pete, that if you wanted to meet quality women, tie a rope around him and throw Pete into a room...
February 27, 2004Pete is a sweetheart and had been a good and kind friend. I can't wait to get to know him more - not for his want of trying. I look forward to when my life is a bit more carefree and we can hang out more. Don't be fooled by the evil name ;)
What can be said? I am a lucky person where my hobby is my job, I am sort of a professional trouble maker hired to examine a company's systems and discover problems in they do not want to hear about.
These days I spend as much time as I can bonding with my new born son.
People describe me as a "shy extrovert” that being I am shy in that I have a extremely hard time approaching strangers on a social/sexual basis, but once I know someone I can be very out going and forward. Lucky for me enough people introduce themselves to me or at least have heard of me enough to try to meet me.
I bring thus up cause this year’s new years resolution for myself is to get over this social Achilles heel, that is. I am currently working on getting over my shyness.
When I am being shy in that I have a extremely hard time approaching strangers on a social/sexual basis, but once I know someone I can be very out going and forward, but not appearing shy at all.
I've been told that some times my shyness is misinterpreted as being standoffish or a "puffed up" attitude (if you see this I’m actually being shy), other times i am been told i appeared slightly pushy (which is funny since I was not pushing them, but was pushing myself). I feel the best way to avoid such miss interpretations is to be ever more front about things, thus the rambling here,.
