It's hard to believe, considering there was a time not so long ago when all of his hair was falling out, but Miles has finally gotten to a point where he's a little shaggy and perpetually disheveled. Understanding her own limitations as a hairdresser and valuing a quality haircut over most everything else, Jaclyn declared … Continue reading Day 314: Baby’s First Haircut!
Miles is having a long week. He may have gotten some extra time with his mom and dad on Monday due to the weather, but Tuesday and Wednesday nights he was back to business as usual, spending the evenings with his babysitter. And although Thursday nights generally bring with them a return to family time, … Continue reading Day 291
In light of the holiday and our trip to Rochester, it has been nearly two weeks since Miles last attended daycare.

While … Continue reading Day 241

Now that Miles has his … Continue reading Day 233: Sounds of the Night-time IV
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the worst night we've experienced as parents so far. After last night, though, I can unequivocally say that we have a new reigning champ. I was finishing my nightly routine of washing my face and lazily brushing my teeth right around 11:00 when Miles started crying. SOP is … Continue reading Day 212
