I started this blog in 2008 to document events in my new son's (Miles) life.
In April of 2010, my second son, Caleb, was born. Since the title is appropriate for both, this blog now chronicles both of their lives and the adventures we share.

the park

standing up

Miles pulled himself from sitting to standing all by himself today for the first time. I just stood back and watched with a ridiculous amount of pride. Silly but true. It definitely made my morning.

bedtime - 8:30 pm

this is what I look like when I get bedtime and playtime confused...

frog legs...YUM


Miles is either telling Gabriel a secret or about to eat his hand. It's hard to tell.

What's down there?

Carshoes! Our friend Leo broke his toe and has to wear a cast. It's the most unfun thing ever, but he's handling it quite well.

july 4..I'm 1/2 way there

Miles celebrated our nations birth and his 1/2 year birthday by swimming at his grandma and grandpa's this weekend. He had the best time ever.

miles loves his new teddy bear

Linc and I bought this teddy bear the
other day for Miles. He loves it because it fits
into his mouth really, really well.

story time

Linc and Miles read one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish together this morning before work and daycare. We were all a little late but it was well worth it.


Miles met his grandparent's cat, Swatz, this weekend. I think they are going to become great friends. He also met their two dogs, BJ and Dozer. He wasn't as impressed with them. They were loud and a little scary.

rice cereal...

Miles had his first taste of real food this weekend.
He wasn't too impressed.

renna turns seven

Miles went to his first birthday party on Saturday. The fabulous Miss Jenny Larson threw a runway party for her daughter Renna, who turned 7. It was fierce!

miles wears a hat...

We went to the Wildflower Center this weekend. Miles was futzy because he refuses to sleep even though he knows he should. He did get to wear his fire truck hat for the first time. The kid has a good head for hats.

eddie the elephant

Several weeks ago we hung a mobile over Miles' changing table. It helps to distract him from one of his least favorite past times, diaper changes. He loves it. It was the best idea I've ever had.

porch time

just chilling on the porch, watching the world go by...


Better Luck Next Time... We wanted to get a picture of Miles in the bluebonnets, but it didn't work out. Three month olds don't want to sit up in a field of bluebonnets. Go figure! These are some outtakes from our unsuccessful photo shoot.

first family photo

I had to post the obligatory naked baby picture.
I know it's out of control, but I had to go there.
