You know what's worse than taking care of a sick baby? Taking care of a sick baby while you, yourself, are also sick. This is the situation Jaclyn and I have found ourselves in for the last week, and while Miles seems to be almost back to normal now, we've only gotten perpetually sicker. Even when … Continue reading Year 2, Day 8
For a kid who's still recovering from illnesses, Miles was completely wired yesterday. With Jaclyn working from home and me working a half day, all we could do was keep up with Miles, growing increasingly exhausted with every passing minute.

Miles had a fever and needed to go home … Continue reading Day 326: Baby’s First Ear Infection!
