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
Miles has risen...to a modest basket of gifts on his second Easter! Still, the highlight of Miles's Easter (or maybe it was just ours) was being able to see our friend Becky and her own little baby.

Friends and family descended upon Charlotte today to pledge fealty to young Miles, who just celebrated his first birthday this week. Our friends George, Sam, and Audrey came into town around 11:30 last night, at which point Sam set about making Miles's birthday cake. Miles, who had already gone to bed for the night, was … Continue reading Year 2, Day 5: Baby’s First Birthday (Party)!
