As I mentioned briefly in the 7 month update, Miles is starting to get a little separation anxiety.  Maybe more than a little.  I know this might have a little something to do with being in 6 houses in 10 weeks, starting a new routine, 13 hour time difference and moving to a place where he recognizes nothing and nobody.  Still, it’s trying when I can’t leave him with a friend to use the bathroom, or a neighbor to take out the trash.  Linda told me Tim suffered from extreme separation anxiety until the age of 4.  I just hope that Miles, being one half Tim, will not inherit this trait.  In the meantime, I’m trying to be there with him while he is with other people so he can start to get used to it.  Maybe I should just enjoy it, there will be a day in the not too distant future when he will want absolutely nothing to do with me.
