As we started up the stairs to go to bed tonight, Miles turned to me and held his finger to his mouth. "Shhhhh!" he said. "We have to be quiet! The baby's sleeping!" And just what "baby" was he talking about? Well, this: Yes, Miles elected to put the largest stuffed animal he owns in … Continue reading Year 4, Day 59
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
Forget everything I said yesterday. Miles got to see his babysitter, Lisa, and her baby, Charlotte, this evening, and it was adorable.
We all got out for a little bit today and hit up a couple parks for walking and...whatever this is. Some playground equipment is clearly designed by psychos. Perhaps the most exciting part of the excursion, however, was the time we got to spend with Miles's babysitter and the baby she is now sitting for … Continue reading Year 3, Day 215

"Baby Miles," he'd reply.The most striking thing about the contrast between then and now is just how much Miles has grown … Continue reading Year 3, Day 6
Miles got to make a new friend today -- our friends Jeff and Arianne's new daughter Reina. As usual when meeting babies, Miles was initially jealous when Jaclyn scooped up the tiny human (a quick aside, there's no way Miles was ever that tiny, right??). But as soon as he was close enough to her, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 349
One year ago today, I watched as Miles emerged into the world. There are a handful of people in my life whose impact on me was so profound, even from the beginning, that I can remember every detail from the moment we met. With Miles it's a little different, in that everything around us is … Continue reading Year 2, Day 1: Baby’s First Birthday!
We found a new game to play with Miles! And it's...well, it's weird. But it DID lead to the first footage of him laughing!
