Miles spent the last two days at home with a cold, coughing profusely and generally growing increasingly grumpy as the days stretched into the afternoons. While he's gotten pretty resistant to the idea of taking naps at the house, he is still very prone to falling asleep in the car, as he did yesterday when … Continue reading Year 3, Day 15
Well, Miles was sick a couple days ago, and now it's evidently my turn. I woke up this morning coughing and hacking, barely able to muster the willpower to crawl out of bed and stagger to the bathroom.

It's definitely had Miles in a sour mood, far fussier than usual and sleeping more restlessly than the norm. … Continue reading Day 264: Baby’s First Cold
