I was prepared to write about Miles's second-ever trip to the dentist today, but then he had to go and start standing and walking (a couple steps at daycare today, but hey -- progress is progress!) unaided!
I remember a time not so long ago when I was delighted by Miles's ability to recognize and articulate the name of Sesame Street's resident ginger-haired, perpetual two-year-old Muppet.
