It's been 100 days since Miles turned 1, and by complete happenstance today was also the day of his 15 month visit with the pediatrician. We are very clearly beyond Miles being blissfully ignorant of not only exactly what to expect from a trip to the doctor, but also the roles that each individual person … Continue reading Year 2, Day 100
Today saw Jaclyn celebrating her second Mother's Day in a way very similar to her first, albeit with a little twist. As with last year, we started the morning in South Park bright and early for the Mother's Day 5K. Miles and I worked up a generous appetite watching and cheering from the sidelines. While … Continue reading Year 2, Day 76
In another life (and a now defunct travel blog), Jaclyn and I lived in Europe for a couple years. We've been back to visit a couple times since, but that's obviously been harder to entertain since Miles was born. Thankfully, our friends are still able to drop in on us from time to time.

While the outcome of that initial conversation was, "Let's see if it gets any better," it wasn't long before she got a call back. Miles had a fever and needed to go home … Continue reading Day 326: Baby’s First Ear Infection!
After experiencing just a little concern that Miles isn't really trying to stand, crawl, or...well, use his legs for much of anything, Jaclyn took Miles to a physical therapist for an evaluation today. The results confirmed my worst fears: this cat is LAY-ZEE. Miles is just a tad delayed in the gross motor skills department … Continue reading Day 320
Today, we took Miles to the dentist so he could get all TWO of his teeth cleaned. I had my doubts that Miles needed to see a dentist this early in life, but according to the dentist this was the "perfect time" to begin ensuring his teeth are polished and healthy. Despite a few tears, … Continue reading Day 312: Baby’s First Dentist Visit!
