Sick Pukey Boy

Milo spent the night with his grandparents on Friday night and they called us on Sat. morning to come get him becuase he was throwing up :(. Chris took him to the Dr. and they put him on a broad spectrum antibiotic. I think he has a virus though becuase after being on it for 48 hours he puked in his crib. He slept until 10:45 today! that is unheard of even though he does sleep later than most other toddlers I know. I pray he gets over this soon and neither Chris or I get it.

Blogging, School, Favorite Phrase and Big Boy Bed

I started this year thinking "I am going to do way better blogging Milo's days this year becuase this blog is the only real record I have of his infancy and toddlerhood!" but nearly two months in and I am failing on that score. He does so much stuff I want to record I just forget it by the time I can get to the computer. My brain seems to be on permanent vacation these days.

Somethings that have been going on are that we decided to put Milo in PDO next fall. He and I went to visit the school this week and I loved it! When we walked in there were backpacks lines up in the hall and it was lunch time so the class room smell like mayonnaise and chips. It made me miss my school days. If Milo loves school half as much as I did he is going to have a blast!

Milo's cognitive development is going through the roof these days. It's so neat to see him making connections he has never made before. He can count to 10 and recognizes the letters B O X and L. Why he latched on to those and not others, I don't know. His imagination is really amazing too. We were at a friends house about a week ago and he was playing with two play sauce pan lids. He turned to me and said "I see a monster!" I said "You see a monster?" He put the sauce pan lids up to his eyes like goggles and said "Yes! I see a monster in the backyard!"

His favorite phrase these days is "What you doin'?" He will ask it over and over and over again even though we just told him what we are doing. I know the repetition is how he learns but it gets wearying.

We are also contemplating moving him out of his crib into a big boy bed but I am having a hard time with that decision. Milo LOVES his crib and he has never tried to climb out. I value a good sleep for him and I have heard so many stories about toddlers who slept really well in their cribs but didn't after they were moved to big kid beds. Because of that it's been really hard to pull the trigger on moving him. He is just so happy where he is at.

Funny Stuff He Says

Milo is hilarious. Most of the time he is inadvertently funny but now that he is getting older he tries to be funny. When he is trying he will crack himself up and say "I funny!" He loves to laugh when everybody else laughs too whether he gets why we are laughing or not.

He loves holding coins. The other day he found a 50 cent piece and goes "oooh, I got BIG MONEY!!!"

Yesterday we were driving to Nanny and Papa's house and he saw a Mustang in the lane beside us, he turned to me and said "Mama, I want a race car!" So I said "ok baby, you can have one when you're 30" to which he replied "Thanks!"

On yet another day we were driving and he saw an 18 wheeler for a local groceries chain go by that had giant pictures of crackers on the side and he says "Look Mama, cookie truck!" to which I said "Yes baby, I see that." As the truck drove away he says "Follow cookie truck Mama!"

There are lots more I just can't remember them right now. I really need to start writing the down when they happen.

This winter has been CRAZY!!! it's snowed several times and usually we only get one heavy snow per winter. Every time it snows Milo likes to go find his "snow hat" and wear it around the house until he gets too hot.
He wasn't wanting me to take his picture so he would put toys up in front of his face.

I caught him unaware though!
There's nothing better than a paci a blanket a toy and a snow hat.
