Miles was born with a mohawk, and as he's grown, the mohawk has as well. The rest of his hair fell out and grew back in, but the mohawk would not give in. Usually, a day or so after his bath, or after he wears a hat, it becomes a little man comb-over. I keep saying that I'm going to cut it, but I haven't been prepared with camera and tape.

(Remember when Jack got his hair cut for the first time?)

Summer in Florida

Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
