A restless night for Miles led to a rough start to the day for all of us. Nevertheless, we dragged ourselves out of bed and headed back into Boston for a walking tour followed by some relatively aimless shambling about. His favorite moment of the day might have been feeling the breeze on a Boston … Continue reading Year 2, Day 122
Today was one of the more eventful days of Miles's life thus far, as we spent today meandering around Boston. The day started off with Miles's first experience on public transit. With a visit to Fenway Park to watch a Battle of the Soxes, today was destined to be a highlight of our Massachusetts trip … Continue reading Year 2, Day 121
Our first full day in Massachusetts involved a short drive to a place chock-full, historically speaking, of bad juju, which always goes well when you introduce kids into the mix! Miles was a little fussy during our trip to Salem, but not in an "I'm hungry" sort of way. It was more like an "I … Continue reading Year 2, Day 120
Today, we set out on another trek across the country, taking a flight north to New England in advance Jaclyn's sister's wedding in Cape Cod. It was hard getting packed and out of the house -- not because organizing suitcases was particularly difficult, but because Miles kept climbing on the luggage. Miles has, of course, … Continue reading Year 2, Day 119
Jaclyn has been out of town for work since Tuesday, and while I've had the services of his usual babysitter, Lisa, the last two nights while I've hosted trivia, mornings (and late nights) have been the Brian & Miles Show. Largely, it's gone well. Tuesday night was a little bumpy (but I had a feeling … Continue reading Year 2, Day 94
We drove up to Massanutten Resort in Virginia yesterday for a brief weekend getaway. While we hoped this would provide some rest and respite from work, daycare, and laundry, I had one singular goal today: Jaclyn and Miles were predictably thrilled about this. Still, once the Episode IX panel was over, we were free to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 46
I mentioned this briefly in a previous post, but our car, feared lost forever, was recovered by the Rochester Police. The good-ish news is that Miles's stuff is still inside it. The bad news, of course, is that the car is still in Rochester. So this weekend I've taken a flight back to New York … Continue reading Day 321
Okay, I didn't look very closely at the weather before we left, but there's evidently a massive winter storm covering the entire northeast of the US right now. This has been abundantly clear throughout our drive (while our visibility has been quite the opposite). The driving has been treacherous to say the least, but it … Continue reading Day 276: Baby’s First Snow!
Miles is a good enough traveler; he just gets a little testy after being in the car for a couple hours (but then, find someone who doesn't). That being said, it was clear by the end of our return trip from Myrtle Beach on Sunday that he had about had it with excessive traveling. And … Continue reading Day 275
We arrived back in Myrtle Beach late last night for the holiday weekend. I knew that Miles wasn't going to be able to really get the most out of his very first Thanksgiving, but there enough generally pureed dishes (mostly centered around potatoes of one sort or another) that he was at least able to … Continue reading Day 270: Baby’s First Thanksgiving!
