In case you’ve been wondering, “Where’ve you been for the last month, Josh?,” the photo above gives a pretty good hint.
Miles Nikola was born on May 4th, a healthy and beautiful 8 pounds 12 ounces. For the last month, he and his mama and I have been at home getting used to each other. It’s truly uncanny how different he is from day to day. His cheeks seem to grow exponentially, for instance.
Also, he just figured out that he can bend anyone to his will through sustained eye contact and cuteness, a dangerous precedent indeed. Once he fully masters the smile, I think we’re doomed.
I don’t recall whether I introduced you all to Roo, the dog we adopted last fall, but Miles and Roo have been getting along nicely, as you can see. Neither has quite figured out how to interact with the other, but there’s no noticeable jealousy, and I’m expecting adorable antics from the pair as soon as Miles gets a bit more mobile.
And yes, following Chad’s example, I’m taking periodic photos next to a stuffed animal, for scale. And he inherited is papa’s love of zoology and books:
I expect it’ll be a while before anyone else gets much sleep, but he, thankfully, has no problem catching a nap.
There are many adventures yet to come.
