Little Song Bird

Milo loves to sing! He loves to sing the ABC song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star though he never gets all the words yet it's still incredibly cute to listen to. He also has started to make up his own songs. Yesterday in the car on the way home from all of our Thanksgiving travels he had his truck in his lap and started singing something like "Happy truck, da dada da!" I soooooo wish I had had a video camera!!!!! When we got to His Nanny and Papa's to pick up Bailey he got up on the piano bench and played us a song and was very deliberate about moving up and down the key board. When I told he it was a very pretty song he said "no". LOL!

"Wash Your Hands?"

One of Milo's favorite things to do these days is wash his hands. I know it's just an excuse to play in the water but it's fine by me since it's cold and flu season. He asks constantly to "Wash your hands?" by which he means can he wash his hands.

Such joy in the simple task of hand washing! When do you grown out of that?
I left a pen on the couch and he got a hold of it and drew all over his face while my back was turned. When I see him doing stuff like that and I scold him by saying "Oh, Milo!" He'll just hang his head and repeat "Oh, Milo!". It's hard not to laugh.

A New Friend

Milo has a new friend. Giraffe has been getting the preferred spot in the crib and then getting drug around the house for a few months now. I swear he gives Giraffe more kisses and hugs than I get. I will miss the stuffed animal and footed pajama days when they are gone. He seems so little when I think about how much he has to grow and so big when I think about how much he has already has grown and how fast it has happened.

There are a bunch of dandelion weeds in our front yard and on the way in the house yesterday Milo pick one and gave me a flower! Be still my beating mother's heart! How sweet is that? This may be the most beautiful flower I have ever received.

Family Pics

A sweet friend of mine and a talented photographer and I recently swapped taking pics of each others families. We both realized that it was really hard to get pics of your own toddler, for some reason they just won't look at mom taking their pic any more and of course you can't get pics of your own family so we decided a trade was in order! She did a great job and I am so thrilled to have pics of the three of us. We haven't had one taken since Milo was 10 days old so it was time.
Our family
I love this one even though you can't see our heads... or maybe because you can't see our heads! :) I just thought it was really cool!
This one looks like a watercolor to me. I just love it and I love his expression, it's so Milo.
Since I turned 30 this year we took a few of just me this is one of my favorites.
We went to a little local ice cream shop after we got done down town. Milo had a blast there.
LOL! I love his expression in this one. Priceless!
Soooooo Pretty!!!
Love this expression, this really captures the stage he is in.

Sleepy Head

It's been forever since I have been able to get a pic of Milo sleeping. Mainly it's becuase I have been unwilling to risk waking him. We put up black out curtains in his room and while it's made it easier for him to sleep it's impossible not to use the flash in his room now so I can no longer take a picture of my sweet sleeping baby with out waking him up. but the other day he needed to get up anyway and it had been a long time so I thought "why the heck not, he is awfully cute when he sleeps!" it did indeed wake him up and he was not a happy camper.
ahwww! isn't he cute!?!
He has gotten so tall that not only does he not really fit into the shot of a 50 mm lens any more but he's getting to the point where he doesn't really fit in the crib well any more. He likes to bunch up in the corner of the crib and he fast running out of room.
