I can't believe Miles is one month old already! He had a check-up today and he's doing good. It's a little hard to tell accurately how heavy and how tall he is. He's still a small guy, but he's growing and reaching the milestones for his age. So tonight I put him on his stomach, and I know his casts give him leverage, but he turned over onto his back on his own. Ahh!
The OT/Hand Specialist at Children's Hospital said kids that have distal arthrogryposis end up being really smart because they have to start using their problem-solving skills early to learn how to get around. She said to watch out because he will get into trouble really fast because of that. Way to use your problem-solving skills turning over, Miles!
I went ahead and indulged myself in a faux-hawk.
At the doctor today I asked her if it was normal for his pupils to dilate a lot when he's eating and looking at me and she said that is an expression of affection. Aww. Love that little guy! He is so cute, I love kissing his chubby cheeks!
