I was told that today at daycare, one of the teachers was holding a small baby, which drew Miles's attention (as tends to be the case). As he stood there looking at the tiny child, his teacher said, "Miles, do you want a little brother or sister?" "Yeah," Miles said.* "Well do you want a … Continue reading Year 3, Day 268
Today, Miles got his first "bad day" report from daycare. Yesterday, I mentioned that, due to his reluctance to stand and walk, Miles is now the oldest child in his room at daycare. While he's crawling like a champ, the downside is that he's also the biggest kid in the room now. Whether he consciously … Continue reading Year 2, Day 39
As a dedicated and determined non-walker, Miles has gradually become the only child in his daycare class who has not moved into the toddler room. This is a shame, because what he lacks in vertical mobility he makes up for with the speed at which he travels on all fours and the tenacity he embodies … Continue reading Year 2, Day 38
Sunday morning music selection. I think Miles just liked the picture.
Miles met a new baby today, and unfortunately his idea of breaking bread involved sticking his finger in the child's eye.
This morning, we joined our friends George, Sam, Franklin, and Leeanne for breakfast and, mostly, so we could all put Miles and his contemporary, Audrey, on the floor and intently watch them interact with each other like we were watching a Bachelorette finale or something. Audrey cooed, and Miles...well, made some zombie sounds at her. … Continue reading Day 271
Today, Jaclyn and I took Miles to Raleigh SuperCon. The event served as Jaclyn's first-ever convention last year, and as a frequent attendee of such things, I couldn't wait to also introduce my son to the celebrities, creators, and general people watching that a show like this brings with it. I've often thought about the … Continue reading Day 153: Baby’s First Con!
Today was day three of HeroesCon, the event that annually swallows a weekend of my life (and untold amounts of my income) whole despite almost every person I know relentlessly scheduling other critical social events the same weekend. I can't help that it falls on Father's Day weekend. I'm also not that into self-aggrandizing holidays, … Continue reading Day 112: Daddy’s First Father’s Day
So far, Miles's exposure to other babies has been pretty minimal. With daycare right around the corner, Miles's world is about to be rocked. What better time, then, to introduce him to our friends George and Sam's also-barely-out-of-the-newborn-stage daughter Audrey? Not present for this historic meeting? THE DADS. What can we say -- HeroesCon … Continue reading Day 111
