We made a big, big change to Miles's room this weekend as we move ever closer to our three-day, no-holds-barred, do-or-die potty training session. Miles has been released from the nightly confines of his Pack 'n' Play and is now sleeping in his own bed (er, well...mattress on the floor). Once he realized what was … Continue reading Year 2, Day 294: Baby’s First Real Bed!
I woke this morning to the sound of Miles's fussing piping through out baby monitor. It took me a few seconds of groggy semi-consciousness to realize that I hadn't also heard a "Can you go check on him?" coming from Jaclyn. I rolled over to find that she had already gotten in the shower, and … Continue reading Day 348

After giving him a moment … Continue reading Day 191: Sounds of the Night-time III
Miles may have not slept well in Denver, but boy is he making up for it this week. He has slept like a rock the last two nights, to the extent that this morning it was nearly impossible to even get him out of bed. With limited time available before I had to be out … Continue reading Day 171
Jamming out in the early morning.
Miles is finally starting to get a solid handle on rolling over, an event we commemorated with a new onesie: Miles's burgeoning penchant for rolling has also allowed him to explore new ways to sleep. For instance, he has recently enjoyed thrashing about all night until he's moved from the center of the Pack 'n' … Continue reading Day 145
