about us

wholefamCommission by Josh Howard

My wife and I met in college in 1994 and have been inseparable ever since! In August 08, we got married during that brief time when it was legal in CA. We started trying for a baby in May 2008 and our oldest son (“Monkey”) arrived in December of 2009. Son #2 (“the Marshmallow” or “the mm” for short) made his debut in April 2013.

In 2015, we relocated to North Carolina from Southern California. I work in the tech field (nerd) and DW is a stay-at-home mom to our two wild and beautiful boys.

  3. Hello, We are also TTC #2. I just found your blog and will be following along. Good luck to you both.

  4. Hi! Love your blog. I would love a chance to talk with you and your wife about joining MOMPulse, a new YouTube Mom community. Feel free to contact me. andrewv@fullscreen.net


  5. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and this blog! I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award. Please check out my recent post for more info. 🙂

  6. HI lady,
    I have lost your email. can you email me at Clairissap@gmail.com? I need your help! I have been reading the mammo posts and I am so confused. there is no way I am waiting 2 or 3 months to have one. Esp as it seems to be a stupid precaution. I am leaning in favor of not telling the mammo people. I don’t think I can get an ultrasound. My RE does not seem to care about when I am breastfeeding but I have to do the mammogram. urgh!! I estimate finishing weaning at the end of December. Sometimes I think that prolonging it is making it worse and I should just go cold turkey but I couldn’t do that to Isobel. ANyway, any help or thoughts would help me a lot. Sorry, I know you are going through your own issues:(((

  7. How do u get PW for protected post?

  8. My partner and I are starting as well and I just found your blog! I look forward to reading it as we go forward!

  9. Hi Both,

    I am contacting you from betty, we’re a UK based production company and we’ve been commissioned by Disocvery to make an hour long documentary about breast feeding and breast milk.

    We’re looking into some subjects that are now seen as ‘shocking’ or ‘taboo’ such as public breastfeeding, wet nursing and milk sharing. These thigns used to be commonplace, and yet suddenly things have changed and we’re trying to find out why! I

    I was wondering, if you wouldn’t mind posting a little something about our film on your site, as I’m trying to talk to gay Mums and Dads who may be inducing lactation, relying on milk donors or employ a wet nurse.

    Here is the proposed text, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!


    UK production company Betty is making an hour-long special about breastfeeding to air within Discovery Network International’s portfolio of lifestyle channels.

    The documentary will look at the incredibly different and unusual ways that breastfeeding is practised and perceived by people around the world, through the eyes of those involved.

    We are looking for people with lactation and breastfeeding stories to share.

    Do you wet nurse, cross-feed or milk-share? Has being able to get an alternative source of mother’s milk offered you more freedom or helped with your working life?

    Did induced lactation enable you to breastfeed when otherwise you could not? Perhaps you adopted, used a surrogate, or wanted to share breastfeeding with your partner. We also hope to look at modern angles on breastfeeding, where medical advancements have allowed people that otherwise may not have been able to breastfeed to do so.

    If you have something to add to the debate, please get in touch:
    breastfeeding@betty.co.uk or t: +44 (0)20 7290 0207

    There is no expectation of filming unless you would like to share your experiences with a wider audience.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

  10. Hi!

    My name is Beatrice and I’m the Casting and Development Assistant at Lucky Dog Films in Washington, DC. We are currently working on a new TV show for a major cable network that will feature LGBTQ families at different stages in their relationships or lives.

    I found your amazing blog and I’m hoping either you’re interested or that you can help point me in the right direction and give me some guidance on where to cast. Or maybe you can take a look at the attached casting call and distribute it on your blog, Facebook, listserv, or a bulletin board.
    My phone number is 240.670.8496 or you can email me at castingluckydog@gmail.com.
    I look forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you may have!

    Thank you!
    Beatrice Becette
