Miles has started throwing around the phrase "One more time!" pretty liberally. When we're playing and I do something funny? "One more time!" When we've just finished running around from playing Naked Baby after bath time? "One more time!" When I give Miles a potato chip? "One more, daddy!" Of course, it's never "one more … Continue reading Year 3, Day 162
During his bath tonight, Miles summoned me to the bathroom so he could give me a "beverage" he referred to as "scrambled egg juicy water." In reality, what he handed me was a small cup of bathwater, but I honestly can't decide which seems less appealing.And yes, of course I pretended to drink it. And … Continue reading Year 3, Day 151

Often, the why or how isn't as important as the fact that, for whatever reason, we're experiencing joy. Still, watching a child grow and develop, one can't … Continue reading Year 2, Day 253
Miles's new favorite bath time game:

Because he doesn't know better yet and the resentment is still a few years off, Miles really enjoys passing the letters along to us, hearing us identify the name and sound, then attempting to repeat this himself. … Continue reading Year 2, Day 107
I noted last week that Miles has gotten a lot bigger recently, and now I know I'm not crazy, because we've had to retire his bath pad in favor of a larger tub capable of accommodating his beefy baby legs. Given his newly-developed penchant for sitting upright on his own, this transition couldn't have come … Continue reading Day 252
"I think Miles just discovered he has a wiener." - Jaclyn during bathtime
The babe in his watery domain.
