Miles had his nine-month (!) checkup today, and things are still looking great. Contrary to what his mother and I assumed, Miles does not weigh 30 lbs. He has gained almost five pounds since his last check-in, currently clocking in at 18 lbs, 11 oz. Developmentally, he’s hitting all the right milestones (although at this point it’s hard for me to imagine he’ll be trying to pull himself to his feet within the next couple months).
Despite all the rapid changes, one thing has remained consistent: Miles’s aversion to needles. I think his cries have only gotten louder.
