Last week, we welcomed new baby boy, Ian, to our family. His stats: 9lbs (4.1 kg) and 20 1/2 inches (52cm). He likes snuggling, eating, sleeping, and processing food. Both mom and baby are doing great — most importantly… he’s a sweetheart.
A lot of people on social media couldn’t wait for 2016 to be over because, they believed, 2016 encompassed more than the usual number of unfortunate events for one year.

Andrea and I got married on Saturday. Sunshine filled the sky while love filled the air. We couldn’t be happier.
Yesterday afternoon in the park, we helped celebrate our friend Thomas’s birthday with a potluck and games.

The lure with its two hooks, one attached to the mouth of the jack fish and […]
I’ve had a strange affinity for all things Apple lately. Most recently, against my better fiscal judgement I decided to pre-order the famous Apple Watch. It wasn’t an easy decision, I went back and forth with myself for months after it was first announced last September. I even hesitated for a couple of days after […]
I’m happy to say that today, I approached a Phil Connors level of perfection in everything that I did. The day didn’t start out very promising with only a half day of work scheduled (out of town) and not the slightest inkling of a plan for the afternoon or evening. As it turned out, the […]
Student 1: Hey Mr. Milner are you still together with your girlfriend? Me: Nope. Thanks for bringing that up though. Student 1: Ohhhhhhh! I’m so sorry. Student 2: Oh, that’s so sad, you were so cute. Student 1: I thought you were going to get married. Me: You’re not the only one. At which point […]
