Miles of update



A) Miles slept 10 hours straight through last night and only woke up a bit around 2 a.m.  But he just talked to himself and squealed and giggled and and eventually fell back to sleep.  I think he would have slept more this morning if he hadn’t soiled himself and needed changed. Silly pooper.

B) Miles’s Well-Baby Visit was awesome.  He was happy the whole time and didn’t even flinch when he got his DTaP shot.

C) Miles’s ped didn’t even flinch when I asked to do a delayed schedule for his vax.  She didn’t even flinch when I declined the HIB that she recommended for today and delayed it for next month with the Prevnar. 

D) According to what I learned last night when I googled her, Miles’s ped is a Catholic Sister of Charity as well as a trained medical doctor. She has worked in Armenia as a med missionary. She is an acupunturist. She is interested in Near Eastern Spirituality as well as Spirituality in Medicine. The center that she is affliated with (I have no idea if it is a convent or not) offers centering prayer, massage therapy and reiki.  She is way cool.  She said that if she had ever had a baby boy, she would not have circumcised him, just as we didn’t circ Miles and she was pleased to hear we were using cloth diapers as they are better for baby’s bottom.  She is way cool.

E) Miles is 16 1/2 pounds and 26 1/2 inches long.

F) Miles can reach for and grab stuff and put it in his mouth.

G) Miles has vanquished Mr. Uber FussyCrankypants and is now the happiest, easiest baby in the whole world.

H) Miles rocks.

    I saw your Facebook entry and came here for more information. Glad it’s going well–and a good pediatrician is a rare find! Ours is 97.5% good, and I thought I was doing well with that rating! ‘Way Cool’ sounds much better!
