Today really could've gone horribly. We took a red eye flight back to Charlotte directly from last night's wedding, and I knew the experience would test the limits of just how amenable Miles is to air travel. He might be up screaming and crying throughout the flight, unable to get comfortable and fall (and stay) … Continue reading Year 2, Day 189
This weekend, we're back in Denver, CO for the wedding of our friends (and, honestly, honorary family members) Alex and Andy. Once again, Miles demonstrated his love of air travel. When we last visited Denver, Miles was unable to partake in the breakfast provided at the hotel due to his goop-based diet. He did not … Continue reading Year 2, Day 187: Back in the Mile(s) High City!

Second, we were staying in Cape Cod and were going to need to drive at least two hours to get to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 126

It was hard getting packed and out of the house -- not because organizing suitcases was particularly difficult, but because Miles kept climbing on the luggage. Miles has, of course, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 119

Miles's first plane trip had gone exceptionally well, barring a particularly hearty bowel release, but how would he fare on a red eye flight? For that matter, how would ANY of us fare? The answer: just fine. Miles slept almost the … Continue reading Day 169
About a week ago, Jaclyn became aware of a professional development opportunity in Denver, Colorado. "It's in October!" she said. Sounded like a great chance for a family trip to me. Jaclyn soon offered one small correction. "It's actually next week." Ample planning be damned; today we woke up at the crack of dawn and … Continue reading Day 164: Baby’s First Flight!
