The Amazing Miles is 2!!

Our precious little baby has turned into an incredible, clever, and sweet toddler!

Bob the Builder
Mickey Mouse
Thomas the Train
Red car(Dad's Mini)
Purple car(for the Elmo CD)
Mexican food
Anything Grandparents!
Being outside (out front, out back, walks, or PARKS - any will do, he's not picky)
Bubble mower

Anything sugary

This boy is a parrot. He repeats EVERYTHING! He knows so many words that I can't list them all here. His first cuss word was the "s" word, thanks to his Mom. Ooooooops! I will say that life is so, so, so much easier now that he can communicate his needs.... Hungeeee!

Now is such a fun, exploratory time. He's such a blast to be around and he's so funny and clever. What a joy, I have no idea how we all got so lucky to have this incredible little boy in our lives.

He had Croup for his 2nd birthday(the downfall of daycare) so we had to move his party out a week, sweet boy!

The Amazing Miles - 18 Months!

How in the world is my baby 1 1/2? Where did the time go? Chris and Miles were laying on the couch this weekend and Miles was 1/2 the length of Chris. Goodness, time really does fly...

All Things Grandparents
Reading, Reading, Reading
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Oven Toast
Climbing on EVERYTHING

Being told no
Anything Sugary

Mama or Ma(only when he really, really wants something)
Juice(this includes juice and milk)
Thank You
Jelly(only heard once but it still makes the list)
Cold(his first word)
Ah-choo (Mommy: Miles, what does a doggy say? BB: Ah-choo! Mommy: Well, maybe??) - That's good parenting right there, ha!

Miles is a super busy boy these days. He absolutely loves school(daycare) and his teachers are just wonderful. He had his first picture day a couple of weeks ago, we should see those pics soon(I'm so spoiled with Chris and his turnaround time, ha!). He can also growl! Cutest growl in the world! We went to his first swim lesson on Saturday and he was beside himself. I could barely hold him. He also has his first carnival on Friday at school and I can't wait!

We found out a couple of weeks ago that Miles has allergies so we are working through the different allergy medicines to find the right one for him. He loves to read and can point to an airplane, car, firetruck, wagon, and the majority of colors(colors when he feels like it) when prompted. He loves to color with his crayons and taking baths(not with crayons). Oh how this boy loves his baths and water :) He also gives the best hugs and kisses. The Easter bunny brought him a sit-n-spin and thus far it spins via Mommy, Daddy, or BB's foot. It's pretty funny.

It took awhile for him to speak actual words(he has whole conversations with us, we just don't know what he's saying) but in the last week it's like someone flipped a light switch on and all of a sudden here come all these words!

Since we were at the doctor's so much before they determined it was allergies, we get to wait a couple of weeks for his 18 month appointment. I'll update this entry with height and weight after we go.

The Amazing Miles is now 16 months old, my how time flies! He started daycare 3 days a week last Thursday. He cried and cried when I dropped him off for the first time. It was the first time in his BB life he's stayed with anyone other than family. It's possible I cried too(as well as the grandmas)... I called to check on him twice and he ate his lunch and took a nap! This week he still cries when we drop him off(well let's be honest here, Chris has been dropping him off because I'm a wuss) but his teacher says it only lasts for a little bit and then he's off playing. He's such a big boy now! He is super tired when he gets home from school, he went to sleep at 6:40PM and slept until 5:30AM on Wednesday! He had his first haircut back in January(shows how behind I am) and ever since then he no longer looks like a baby, he looks like a little boy! We also got rid of bottles about a month ago(he was only drinking one at night before bed anyways).

He's at such a fun age right now. He loves, loves, loves to read and he started saying "Daddy" consistently this week. He's so proud of himself when we say good job to him. He smiles this cheeky smile and giggles. He adores his grandparents and family, Elmo, Super Why and Airplanes. He knows where his belly button is and where his eyes are, the letter "Y", and he will honk his car horn upon request. He's eating solid foods at school and we're working through the stockpile of baby food at home. He eats bites of almost everything that I eat that's not spicy or fried. He even likes black-eyed peas(that's my boy!). He's not big on meats yet but he likes almost all veggies. He loves Chex, goldfish, and milk.

With each and every new day we love him more and more. We are so incredibly lucky and blessed to have the Amazing Miles in our lives! :)
