Believe it or not, Miles had his first day at the beach a couple weeks ago. You’d think that, because we live in SoCal, we would have been there sooner!
Miles, as you might suspect, loved it.
Miles like helping with the dishes. We’ll have to remind him of that when he becomes a teenager.
Miles got decked out to go to church, and seemed to impress the people in congregation with his style.
Poppy and Grandma Peaches got me table and chairs that are the perfect size for me.
Miles has said a handful of words, but usually just briefly and often he doesn’t say the word again. He does do about a dozen sign language words though, like ‘more’, ‘yes’, ‘sleep’, ‘cat’, ‘dog’, ‘ball’ and ‘car’.
Here is his first (official) word.
Miles seemed more interested in comparing the Thomas the Train wrapping paper to his Thomas toys than the gifts themselves.
I woke up this morning and was so excited that it was Christmas. It’s been a long time since I have been really excited about this day. But when you have a child, you look at Christmas through their eyes. So to celebrate Ian made blueberry waffles for Miles, the Grandparents and then we opened lots of presents! Miles was completely overwhelmed! I think we all were when we saw how many presents he had. The first 3 presents he was excited but then he had this glazed look on his face for the rest of them. When the last present was opened he signed that he wanted to go to sleep and ran to his bed! Aaahh, the joys of being a child!
I feel very grateful for my family, friends and health!
Merry Christmas all!
Today was like most Sundays; chores, taking care of Miles, a little hike but this is a special day because it is the day my husband was born. My life wouldn’t be the same if I had not met him. Everyday I feel incredible lucky to have this amazing person in my life and to be the father of our child. So to celebrate him I hired a chef to cook an amazing dinner for us. It was a night we will never forget!
It’s a balmy 36 degrees in SoCal. That won’t stop the daily walks, but we still need to bundle up.
One slipper on and one slipper off. Or one sock on and one sock off. Don’t ask me why.
Poor Miles learned hard lesson about momentum and gravity. He raced down a grass hill too fast to stop himself and wiped out in the dirt face first.
Fortunately no damage a hug from mama couldn’t cure. Onto the next challenge!
Miles wakes up with a flourish.
This was an instant hit with Miles. Here are the moments after it was first assembled and his first ride.
Miles has created his own language. We’re not sure exactly what he’s saying, but he sure says it emphatically.
Miles is now 19 months and it seems like everyday he discovers something new. Right now, he will look at something and say hmmmm. hmmmm, hmmmm. He is like a little scientist! It is so adorable. One thing that isn’t so adorable is his stubbornness. So far, he is winning most of the debates! ARGH… He refuses to give up his bottle, I had a feeling I should have taken it from him a while ago, now he just cries when I try to to give him a sippy cup. I have tried all kinds of cups but so far none of them have worked. He only wants to drink water from cups and sippy cups but no MILK! So far he is winning this battle but I will win the war! Haha…
I guess it starts early with these boys!
Miles makes a daring trek across a brick path.
Miles and I went to the playground a few days ago and there was a coughing little kid next to Miles. Next day, Miles has a 103 fever. ARG.. So now I just have to rant about the irresponsible parents who take their contagious children to playgrounds, schools, daycare or anywhere for that matter, where they can spread their germs on other people! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING MOMS AND DADS? I know it’s a drag to have your sick children cooped up in your house but please keep them there!
