The continuing adventures of a horror-obsessed stay-at-home dad.
Monday, March 30, 2009
Elijah was born at 11:04 pm on Friday, March 27. He shares his birthday with his uncle Jason. Elijah was 21 inches long and weighed 8 lbs, 12 ozs at birth. He has big feet with long monkey-like toes that he can grasp fingers with. He's a pretty mellow little guy and loves to be held so much that the nurses nicknamed him "cuddlebug."
I'm a writer (visit Dark Destinations @ TheCabinet.com), occasional filmmaker (see Spinning Grave.com) and big-time fan of all things horror and Halloween. I've been a stay-at-home dad since I quit my dreary office job in April of 2008. I have a precocious daughter (Kyra) who shows every sign of being a more hardcore horror fan than I. She's named after the actress who played the little girl in the original Night of the Living Dead. My wife and I are expecting another child in March of 2009. It was more practical and cost-effective for me to remain home and provide care for our children. Thus begins my truly terrifying adventures in the land of playgroups, gymnastics lessons, kids parties, etc. In space, nobody can hear you scream...at the playground they hear you and look at you kinda funny...
