Common Scenes

First of all, Monday was Trevor's BIRTHDAY! He even had a short day from school so we could party all day. We love him :)

Most days, I go to bed singing the song from Milo's airplane on a loop in my head. "Flying up, flying down, flying all around..." Basically my favorite song.

Milo is really loving practicing yelling. It's so darling also I have a headache. 

He is also climbing on everything. It cracks me up so much. He gets stuck in the funniest places. But seriously. If he wants to get somewhere, he will stop at nothing. Including flips over the front of the treadmill.

He has this thing for the cabinet with the trash can. So we invested in some child locks finally.

Speaking of child locks. Yesterday we found out that if you shake the box in his face, he LOVES it. He was cracking up all the way through walmart. Basically if you do something annoying at him, it will bust him up. He must be a boy or something.

He is happy and cuddly and sweet and he follows me around! And wants me! Now we're practicing waving and blowing kisses and dancing. Mostly he just stands there and smiling while I do those things to him. But that's ok because I like waving and blowing kisses and dancing.

He ALWAYS lays down in the cart at the store. It kills me.
He's a great assistant for work. When I make calls, he likes to yell his input in the background. He also likes to come with me to take pictures of houses. He has a great eye for these things so I'm glad I have him.
We are getting SO excited for Christmas! It's finally cold here, which isn't awesome, but I'm not even mad because the weather has been so nice up till now, and it will get warm again next week. So the Christmas tree will be going up today. In our room. Otherwise I will be pulling it off Milo for the next 2 months :).

8 Months of Milo + Young Women in Excellence

The other day I had a total breakdown. I want Milo to keep growing up and stop growing up and stay exactly the same all day every day forever, and relive every day over and over again. Is that so much to ask? There is just not enough time!

Some Milo favorites as of lately (on his 8 month birthday!)

1. Milo loves bananas. If all else fails, just break out the bananas and he will eat. He loves his nanas and it is adorable.

2. He can officially climb out of his exersaucer. Sometimes when I'm pumping I have him play in there. The other day, I looked over right as he nose dived out of it. Nothing is safe.

Almost impossible to wrestle into jams.
3. He blows bubbles all day, every day.

4. He is sleeping through the night!!!!! Kind of. Does it count if we hand him a bottle when he wakes up and leave? Probably not. But hey. I'M sleeping through the night.

5. He has one little tooth! It is so cute!

6. He loves to poke everything with his index finger.

7. He walks himself along furniture like a little ninja. And is very good at climbing up on everything and sliding/falling with style.

8. He pulls himself up on my leg and follows me around and wants me. YES. MY BABY LIKES ME. Mission accomplished.

9. He is a tough little nut to crack. He smiles all the time but those giggles... we have to WORK for them! He kind of sucks air in and squeals a lot... but he is tough to really get going. But I tell you what... when we figure out what he thinks is funny that day, it is SO worth it.

The last 2 weeks have been insane. With planning being momma, church events, working, and trying to keep the house functioning, it's been quite a whirlwind. Trevor is my life saver/hero. That guy is wonderful. Life is busy (and not too busy) and good and we love it!

At church, I work with the teenage girls. I love it SO much and we had a little showcase/year in review event (Young Women in Excellence) on Wednesday. It was so great! I love those girls. These are the centerpieces and decorations we put together. I'm obsessed.
