Last night was the most recent in a series of bedtimes punctuated by Miles's crying, thanks to the new tooth slowly emerging from his upper gums. We first noticed this tooth last week after a couple days of fairly persistent wailing. Often, all it takes for Miles to relax is some medicine and some cuddle … Continue reading Day 352: The Teething Diaries VII
No tears tonight when leaving Miles with his babysitter! In fact, Miles didn't give us much of ANYTHING...he was as P.T.F.O. as I've ever seen him. I tried to wake him up as we got out of the car, then once we were in the house, and then (and I was sure this would work) … Continue reading Day 338

And although Thursday nights generally bring with them a return to family time, … Continue reading Day 291

It's really something to have someone in your … Continue reading Day 282
