Over the weekend, Miles and I were looking at some pictures from just after he was born. "Who's that?" I'd ask, showing him a photo of a tiny newborn curled up in a bassinet. "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!

It's only been about three months since I've had to go back to work, but I already feel like I miss so much of Miles's day. The fact that he's up before I leave for work makes things a little easier (easier in one way, at least), but on most nights I only get maybe … Continue reading Day 95
"He's just a little ball of cuteness." - Jaclyn This ball of cuteness would pee all over her an hour later.
Miles was full of adorable noises today! In fact, I tried to get some video of it. Made a second attempt a few minutes later. At least I know he's got solid comedic timing. A little "Farrelly Bros" for my tastes, but quality nonetheless.
Miles's response to toys has been pretty hit-and-miss so far, which is understandable given that he's still just trying to figure out what the hell his own hands are for (Note: he still thinks they're edible). This week, Jaclyn got Miles a new toy, and it's the first thing I can confirm that he clearly … Continue reading Day 89
