We are starting to "hit our stride" and are really starting to figure out what being a parent is. Now...that changes pretty regularly based on what Miles needs but he is starting to be somewhat more predictable, sort of. He likes to be on the move and rarely sits still.... Continue reading

We have Miles 10 month appointment on Friday so I'll finish his 10 month post and get that up soon. We are also starting to do some more work on the house so I'll get some actual house posts set up too so this doesn't turn completely into a baby... Continue reading

I'm going to roll these into one "update" post and then post 9 month photos next week when Miles actually turns 9 months. I cannot believe that he'll be 9 months in a week. It's such a strange feeling to absolutely love watching him grow and also already missing the... Continue reading

Seven Months. Closer to one year old...and I'm mentally brainstorming birthday ideas (I'm a planner...who's surprised??). General Info: After September I realized that working from home on Fridays wasn't working well. I was feeling like I wasn't 100% with work and I wasn't 100% with Miles and that's not good...

Six months. Half a year. My goodness. Note: I started this post closer to his six month birthday but then have {obviously} neglected to finish it. Right now (at Miles 6 month birthday) I work 4 days a week in the office and am working from home on Fridays. We... Continue reading

This is the first home project I'm blogging since Miles was born. We are so excited about our backyard potential. We have plans to turn our lower level of the backyard into an outdoor living room. We started looking towards the end of August at furniture knowing that there would... Continue reading

We had an awesome time on our annual family vacation to the Lair of the Golden Bear in Pinecrest, CA. Lots of sleeping and eating and staying cool (during the day) and staying warm at night. We all got dirty and got to see some good friends and have some... Continue reading

Another month in the books. And what a great month it was. Miles continues to be such a joy in our life. And we feel so lucky to be his parents. He is super smiley that we often call him S-Miles. He is starting to laugh more freely and is... Continue reading

This cracks me up! I was eating pita chips and he thought it was hilarious. I'm glad that he thinks I'm so funny. Miles - Laughing at chips from Home Sweet Oakland on Vimeo. Continue reading

Miles is just so smiley {almost} all the time now. He is starting to blow raspberries and sticks his tongue out and I think he may be teething. Nothing visible yet but he is always gumming everything and is the king of drooling. This video totally cracks me up. He's... Continue reading

Life has changed in the past few weeks. I'm back at work and so far things are going well. Miles has adjusted well to daycare and enjoys it much more. He is growing so quickly, and drooling like a faucet. He went through a pretty massive growth spurt about two... Continue reading

I just finished my 2nd week of work (3 days a week) and for the most part it's great. I like work. I like my job. I like my co-workers. I hate leaving Miles. The first week was fine (for him). This past week was 1/3 great. He had two... Continue reading

Saturday Miles and I cheered on pops as he competed in the Eppie's Great Race triathlon. We had some help from Nana and it was a great day!! In the afternoon we all took a pretty good nap (especially Matt). Continue reading

Another month in the books. I cannot believe he is already 4 months old (and yes, I will say this in every monthly update I'm sure). I feel like between months 3 and 4 he went from a newborn to an infant. He seems less fragile, has more personality and... Continue reading

Last weekend we headed up the coast out to Drakes Bay Oyster Farm to celebrate a friend's birthday and also see friends who were in town from New York. We were hopeful that Miles would nap in the car and boy did he. What a champ!! He napped the entire... Continue reading

We did it!! Matt was in Portugal for 8 nights and 9 days. My mom came down for 6 nights and I could not have survived the week without her (thanks mom!!). It was so hot all week that Miles spent a lot of time in just a diaper. 1.... Continue reading

It's been a busy week or so. I wasn't posting last week because I was just a wreck. Last week was rough. We started Miles at daycare Wednesday for a few half days so he'll get used to it before I go back to work July 16 (their policy). And... Continue reading

I have been shooting some videos on my phone and using Vimeo to store them. But the trouble with creating all my posts on my phone is that I can't {neatly} add videos. So now that I have a few moments I'm going to post some videos that I've taken... Continue reading

This little man cannot get enough of his hands. I think he loves his left one the very most. These photos are just so sweet. Man I love this kid. We had a great week while Matt was away...as great as it can be with him gone that is. The... Continue reading

How did that happen. Poof. My son is three months old. People said it would go quickly and boy is that true. Yesterday Miles turned three months old. In my moms group we keep talking about how every week gets a little bit easier and it's so true. I'm figuring... Continue reading

Matt got to celebrate his first Father's Day by having some solo father & son time with Miles. I went to a yoga class and did grocery shopping to stock up for the week since Matt is out of town until Friday. When I came back Matt was dealing with... Continue reading

The time has gone so fast. I can hardly believe he's almost 3 months old. It seems every week gets a little easier although this week I think he's going through a growth spurt because he seems to be eating every 90 minutes and is kinda cranky and not napping... Continue reading
