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. However, I'm rethinking this behavior … Continue reading Day 210: The Teething Diaries V
Miles is really discovering a taste for books... Chew all you want, kid! This particular book is actually built to withstand just about anything a toddler can throw at it. Whether chewing, gumming, ripping, or peeing all over it, Miles's Indestructible book takes a licking and keeps on flipping. A waterproof book?! Why isn't everything … Continue reading Day 204

It's safe to say now that this fairly innocent precursor has now given way to legitimate and persistent teething. When I pick Miles up from daycare, I don't expect too much of a … Continue reading Day 194: The Teething Diaries III
More often than not, Miles's bedtime is accompanied by various degrees of a stink. Not the diaper blowout kind, but the "WHY ARE YOU ABANDONING ME TO THE DARKNESS!" kind. 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
Great news! Miles is growing less fixated on gnawing on his hands with each passing day! The bad news: he's discovered his feet. God help me, kid... And yes, he's managed to get a foot into his mouth more regularly, and literally, than I would've expected. We did make a second attempt at baby oatmeal … Continue reading Day 133
