When I picked Miles up from daycare today, he was lying in a crib and almost looked like he was asleep, although on closer inspection it was obvious his eyes were open. Even after I fully entered the room, which would usually elicit a big grin and outstretched arms, Miles remained motionless in the crib, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 22
Well, what Miles lacked in crying last night he more than made up for this morning, breaking into an uncharacteristic sobbing session on the way to daycare.

Miles was sleeping as hard as I've ever seen him sleep when we arrived home from daycare tonight.

Jaclyn offered (and, honestly, probably really wanted) to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 9

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
