James and Wesley
My son James was born January 22nd, 2010...and his little bro Wesley joined the family on February 1st, 2013! Here are a few pics through the years, including a few cameos by me, my wife, parents, and their two cousins; Daphne (the youngest) and Melodie...I'm thrilled to be able to share some stories about their adventures in childhood, and get your advice on my adventures in parenthood, every morning!
Wesley displaying his newfound talent of smiling!

Maybe the coolest pic I've ever taken:

Visit from Grandma and Grandpa!
Wesley's official FIRST DOCUMENTED NON-GASSY SMILE (we think)
A few pics from my parents' visit...I love the perspective of this shot, my dad playing basketball with James while Wesley's rockin' some "tummy time!"
The Miller men up early on a Saturday (and no, although it does look like it...Wesley is NOT giving me the finger, lol)
GREATEST PICTURE EVER. You think we'll ever get the two of them to nap in the afternoon simultaneously again?
I give you "Surprised Wesley" And "Angry Wesley"

My beautiful niece Melodie at the end of her 1st time riding "Pirates of the Caribbean" at Disneyland...and I was lucky enough to take that ride with her. It's hard to be the "cool uncle" when you're clear across the country, but I definitely hold that title after this past week!
