Four weeks ago at this very minute (6:49am), I became a dad. I saw Micah delivered first; I even saw his little tiny 19-week 3-day arms and legs moving a bit when he first came out. And then little Judah, tiny Judah 2 ounces lighter than his bigger, older brother. I didn’t remember it at […]
Little One, Born to Bring us Such Love
Our good friend Adam sent us a nice email the other day, and included the words to the hymn “Little One, Born to Bring us Such Love.” As he said in his email, “it seems, sadly, amazingly fitting” for our loss of Micah and Judah. I’m fairly certain I’ve never heard the tune to this […]
October 25: The Day I Will Never Forget
I’m not really sure how to blog about something as tragic as Sarah and I have experienced in the past few days – yet, I feel the need to begin to share our experience. Perhaps it’s part of my grieving process. Perhaps it’s so that I can hear from others who may have gone through […]
What the future beholds…
Maybe you’ve seen this YouTube video before – but…it’s pretty cute. That’s what we’re gonna be enjoying in a little while…crazy.
Two More Penises in the Walker Cleaveland Home
Well – it’s official. We are expecting twin boys! While that is what we were thinking, it has now been verified, and we’ve seen the penises. And as you can see in the photo above, it was pretty easy to tell!
Tattoo your twins! And other ways to tell your twins apart!
I haven’t known a lot of twins in my lifetime – but I feel like whenever I have known some, it’s been VERY hard for me to tell them apart. There are still some twins that I just cannot tell apart. So, it was slightly disconcerting when I found out we were going to be […]
Watch out Mommybloggers – Dazed Dad is here!
Back on November 25, 2006, I wrote a post on Pomomusings entitled “Hubbyblogger? Mommyblogger?” Here is a short quote from it: “During our time last night hanging out, we talked some about blogging, and about blogging about children, and it was decided that I would probably turn into a mommyblogger when we have kids. Not […]
Give Advice to New Parents Registering for a Baby Shower
This morning while Sarah and I were at our weekly “Day Off Breakfast” (otherwise known as “It’s frickin’ 7am and I’m hungry so get your butt out of bed so we can go get some food!”), we were talking about baby stuff: names, showers, registering for stuff, etc. And we were surprised to realize that…huh, […]
Ultrasounds, Genitalia and Identical Twins
Today we went into Oakland for the nuchal scan ultrasound. This is something that Kaiser does frequently and is the test that helps to identify babies that might have higher risks of Down Syndrome. It’s crazy that by checking the tiniest of measurements, they can identify these types of risks. While we don’t have the […]
Get twins! It’s ALL the Rage These Days…
If it’s good enough for Doogie Howser, then it’s good enough for the Walker Cleavelands! Apparently having twins is all the rage these days. Last week when we were seeing a variety of doctors, one of them (the one who is definitely NOT our favorite at all) said, “Twins, huh? So are these natural twins?” […]
