We've seen a lot of growth in Miles over the last couple weeks. And while a lot of this has been positive, not every aspect of growing up is desirable. A...sure, we can call it "developmental milestone"...we appear to have reached in the last couple weeks involves Miles's response to the more unsavory parts of … Continue reading Year 2, Day 130
