Miles's single, razor-sharp tooth has finally broken through and started to emerge from his gums. Squint really hard, and you can see it right above Jaclyn's finger in the picture below.
We have teeth! Or tooth, anyway. Miles has a habit, as outlined previously, of gnawing on...well...pretty much anything he can fit between his jaws. This has included fingers, both his and mine. I've generally allowed this, laughing as he slowly realized that my fingers were unsavory and eventually rejected them.

Well, it finally happened, folks. We've had our first undeniably rough night as parents. This didn't come as a surprise though.

When I pick Miles up from daycare, I don't expect too much of a … Continue reading Day 194: The Teething Diaries III

Sometimes he gets fussy to protest simply going to bed; other times, he's just in need of a little more food. And then there are … Continue reading Day 137: The Teething Diaries II
Well, Miles has definitely started teething. What started as an innocent love affair between a boy and his hand/forearm has turned into something far more aggressive. And as someone who has found my finger quickly seized and crammed into his mouth (repeatedly), I can confirm that Miles has developed some serious jaw power. Maybe it … Continue reading Day 106: The Teething Diaries I
