• Snuggling before bed, Louisa, 2, leans back and with explosive force smashes her disproportionately large skull against my teeth. I shriek out in pain, possibly bleeding. Unfazed, Louisa sighs, then coldly pats me on the head.

    “You’re okay, Daddy… You’re okay…”

  • This year’s Halloween photo did not go as well as last year’s…

  • First blurry Polaroids of Wendell

  • When you forget it’s picture day and send her to school in a Snoop Dogg shirt.

  • Louisa’s first time at Sesame Place with special appearances by Wendell and Mae. First three are short clips, last three are the full jawn with music on top.

  • Of all the years to pick for the first time to forget my dad’s birthday, this one was simultaneously the least forgivable and the most. The least because it’s his 70th, the most because I forgot my own (today) between these two babies and craziness at work. Anyway, I think I might have a get out of jail free card here somewhere… Happy Belated 70th Birthday, Grandpa Boop!

  • Dreaming Wendell.

  • Louisa clearly has plans for her baby brother. Wendell has questions about those plans.

  • Wendell Brooks Phillips, 7 lbs. 11 oz.. He doesn’t have much to say but he seems nice enough. Allison is recovering beautifully. She’s the best.

  • About to have this baby… UPDATE: Success! Stay tuned.

  • Enjoying her last weekend as an only child.

  • The @omega Speedmaster all dressed up for its special day on a dressy NATO from @havestonstraps. 50 years. Still a perfect design.

  • Today is World Typewriter Day. If you or any of your associates ever come across a typewriter in Dvorak layout, please contact me immediately. I have three of them, the only three I have found in years of searching. I love them. I will pay you a finder’s fee. I really love them.

  • From a while back.

  • Profiteroles are top 5 among most overrated desserts.

  • Been a while. I have so many photos to post. Feels too late now though… Cobblers’ children have no shoes.

  • Started shooting film again.

  • The Champions League concept of an “aggregate victory” is antithetical to the very idea of a game—sorry—match. It somehow manages to be dumber and more entertainment-killing than ending a game on penalty kicks.

  • This is it for me, and there’s still a ways to go.

  • Couple more Louisa portraits.

  • Gettin’ crisp outside.

  • I dressed up for Halloween. 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝
