We clearly need to start regulating what Miles is watching on TV more heavily. I don't know what exactly is going on here, but it certainly doesn't look appropriate for toddlers.
There's been nothing short of a deluge of babies arriving for friends of ours over the last couple weeks, and today we paid a visit to one of them, taking Miles to meet his friend Duke's new baby brother. Even if the baby visit was more for us, Miles still had a lot of fun … Continue reading Year 3, Day 179
Sometime in the inky blackness of night, I was jostled from my sound sleep by the sound of Miles's voice over the monitor. "Mommy! Mickey fall!" Okay, actually I was jostled from my slumber by Jaclyn's follow-up. "Can you go get him?" I stumbled out of bed and down the hall to Miles's room, waking … Continue reading Year 3, Day 176: Sounds of the Night-time VIII
Three days in, and the box hasn't gone anywhere.
Having figured out how to open his closet door, Miles went rummaging around in there yesterday and emerged with a small nylon pouch in his hand. "This, daddy," he said. "Look at this."

After months of waiting for him to get a little more coordinated, I promised Miles that we would finally take his car out for a spin this weekend. He...uh...well let's just say it's going to be a while before he gets his permit.
I discovered the placement of this objet d'art after Miles was asleep tonight. Considering the precise, balanced location of this ball, it looks like we evidently have a tiny feng shui expert on our hands.
Jaclyn came home from her shopping trip yesterday with a present for Miles. Just the word "present" is enough to get Miles excited beyond measure, but this one was particularly enticing, since it combined his love of balls and his love of hitting things with large sticks. Of course, the biggest battle we've just introduced … Continue reading Year 3, Day 124
Miles and I went for a walk before dinner this evening, and while Miles wanted to ride on his tricycle, he also insisted on bringing this unwieldy box toy with us. I tried to talk him out of it. I explained how he was going to get tired of lugging it around. I tried to … Continue reading Year 3, Day 122
First thing this morning, Miles had a doctor's appointment to remove the stitches he received after his fall over the weekend. He was thrilled to hear about this when he woke up. "I no wanna go see a doctor!" he complained. While Jaclyn was with him in the hospital on Friday night, it fell upon … Continue reading Year 3, Day 107
