Check out the testimonials at http://www.gearforears.com/ to see Miles in an endorsement for Ear Gear, the great hearing aid clips that have been a wonderful tool to help reduce parental stress. No more concern about losing or destroying the hearing aids!
Miles finally has a tooth! After being the only one in his playgroup to not have any teeth, he finally sprouted a pearly white and very sharp tooth. He has been very good about not biting me while nursing which allows him to keep nursing. As soon as I can get a good picture of it I'll post it.
We also have a new car! We got a Mazda 5, the mini mini-wagon. It seats six, has three rows, the back two rows lie flat for great cargo ability, it gets decent gas mileage for a car of its kind and has sliding doors. Here's a photo of Miles on his maiden voyage, going to playgroup.
Grandma Lorraine and Grandpa Jack came for a visit last week. Miles had lots of fun visiting with his grandparents. We went out to Moss Beach to see the tidepools but the tide was too high to see much in the water. But the harbor seals were out sunning themselves and giving birth to their pups. We weren't able to get too close from down below (it's against the law) but we found a trail that allowed us a nice view from up above. The baby seals played in the surf as the mommas rested on the shore. It was pretty neat to watch. The weather was typical of the ocean shore- overcast and cold.
On the weekend, we headed into San Francisco to show off Golden Gate Park. There is a really great children's playground with a carousel right next to it. Miles had lots of fun watching the older kids, playing on the climbing equipment and creeping around on the spongy material they put down for safety. Then we went on the carousel. Miles got to ride on a rooster this time.
After lunch, we headed towards the botanical gardens where we met up with some very bold squirrels. We finished the day at the Japanese Tea Garden where Jeff took Miles to the top of the barrel bridge and did some fancy stroller dancing. Listen for Miles' squeal of pleasure as you watch the video. A good time was had by all.
As Jeff was taking his parents to the airport, they stopped by the climbing gym to say goodbye. Miles tried his hand at climbing- I think he shows some natural talent.
