Here Miles saw the need for a photo op right as I was getting ready to write today's blog......

Well things are finally getting on a schedule around here....a very loose schedule.  Basically it consists of eating, sleeping, eating things off the floor, mom vacuuming the floor so that he won't eat things off of it, climbing up the stairs, mom chasing him up the stairs and trying to teach him how to go back down them, and then playing in the trash.  
Today we mixed things up and went for a REALLY LONG walk downtown to the library to check o
ut my students' art exhibit that is up.  They did such a great job and won so many awards.  It was a great walk there - all down hill.  However, what goes down must come up again....and did we ever.  My legs still feel like jello.  Lucky for Miles he slept through the entire thing.  Now I feel like I could sleep into next week.  I make that walk all of the time, but never before with a stroller.  It's just another way my life has changed......just like the decision whether or not to make a "quick stop" at Target on my way home, or to go grocery shopping now or after Dustin gets home, or whether bath time should happen before The Office or after The Office.  The life of a parent is just FULL of moral dilemmas.  
Here Miles is playing with his new favorite toy - miniature bunt pans (is that even how you spell it?).  I'm just glad that he hasn't yet discovered the miniature ceramic bowls behind the bunt pans.  Thanks Nana for the cute monkey pajamas AND the miniature bunt pans! :)

Here is a picture of Miles after our walk today.  One funny thing that he has been doing...... whenever I pick him up and we walk up the stairs together (which is a pretty normal - run-of-the-mill activity) he looks right in my face and laughs and laughs.  Like he is waiting for me to find the humor in me hauling his 25 lb body up a flight of stairs.  EVERYTIME.  Inevitably I do end up laughing because it is so funny to see him laugh at it that I can't help myself. :)

25 pounds!! Oh, my arms just ache thinking about it. For the first 4 days we had Alex, he would not let me put him down. He was 18 pounds at the time, and my arms were absolute jello by day 2. Having a great time following your blog, and congrats on your new family!

I feel your pain on the heavy baby front, Tiffany....I truly do (in my arms, in my knees, in my shoulders....).

Great pictures of baby Miles....sounds like things are going well down there. I also feel your pain - Paul is only 22 pounds, but to go from nothing to that is quite a strain on your arms, back and legs!

Might I recommend Tivo or some other DVR for the dilemas of when to do certain is a life saver for us since we are into several shows and they all tend to overlap times when we are doing things with Paul. This way, we record them and then watch them after he is in bed! Totally love it.

Have a great weekend...
