Sprocket has grown a lot since he joined the Miao Family on 31 July 2011. Just how much is hard for me to quantify. When I first got him, we could share the same pillow. Now he has to sleep on his own pillow by my head. My impression is that he has doubled in size, but I know this is not accurate. If he doubled every month, pretty soon he would be bigger than all the Miaos combined, people included.
I should have taken pictures every week to chart his growth. I can start now. Pictures with Chun would provide scale, but unfortunately they have had only one proper photo session. Doctor’s orders (though I still hope that I can convince them to relax the rules a bit, once I explain that Chun doesn’t really make him more active, not really any more active than having people around). For now I will use a kombucha bottle for comparison. If only I had started this one month ago! This picture of Sprocket was taken on 1 Sept. The bottle is approximately 7.5 inches tall.
