This is what I like to call a reality shot. The image captures the whole situation. Milo running wild and free…daddy going after her in exasperation just wanting to listen to the audio without his child running under the boundary ropes…. such is life…and parenting. 🙂 Good thing she’s so cute.
Here’s Milo and Aunt T…. don’t you just lover her red hair! She was working with Milo on sign language and Milo (in the 2 week) period has already started signing more, food, milk, please…. we are working on help, but it’s a little advanced 🙂 I am so impressed with her. It has also helped to decrease her frustration.
Here are the two lovely ladies twirling about… Milo loves to twirl and get dizzy. Sometimes it’s nice to tap into your inner joy/free spirit and let go. Being a mom has really helped me to realize that. In church yesterday, I just wanted to bust out into twirling and jumping during this particularly fun song…. I didn’t…for fear that my husband might disown me….jk, but not really.
and another 🙂
It’s amazing what kids pick up. Milo is all about phones…. mainly she likes to watch videos of herself on the phone. I think we are going to have a star on our hands. Also, I only wear make-up maybe 25% of the time, but Yet Milo knows what to do with the brushes. If I give her one to play with, she immediately starts brushing it on her face.
I hope you all had a great Christmas! I know we did. Tomorrow I have some family coming in town to visit…..My sister, brother-in-law, niece, 2 brothers, and grandparents…..all staying in our home. It’s going to be full of laugher, love, chit chat, and probably a few quarrels with all 4 siblings together again…. and I can’t wait. When we were teenagers and we actually fought each other, my sister always won because she had a fool proof plan. She would corner herself in against the kitchen cabinets and kick anytime I got close. Her legs were longer so I couldn’t ever reach her without getting kicked. I eventually just gave up. But, I don’t think she has quite the stamina these days. So, if a situation should arise, I think I will have a leg up 🙂 Anyway. on to Christmas. I wanted to post some pictures of Milo’s First Christmas before we got caught up in sight seeing with all our family.
We didn’t even wrap Milo’s Christmas presents on Christmas morning. We just draped them and let her Unveil them. First were blocks…. Daddy has been playing builder and Milo has been playing Godzilla.
The second was her wheelybug Bull. She has been pushing this thing around everywhere.
My parents sent her a dance and sing station.
Then a walker from our 3rd Family, the Underwoods
Our neighbors invited us over for Christmas Dinner…. Milo was great and we had a wonderful time…
Then we got home and she turned into a sad sally… tired and worn out from her big day..
Climbing up all over me.
Isn’t her outfit cute?! Top was £4.95 at H&M (heather and Milo’s store).
Then she was happy again after some Milk and a snuggle.
Ready to play some more with Daddy
On Christmas, Milo decided that she was going to walk pretty much everywhere. She still falls, but she walks all over the place….. Video to come soon.
Milo is getting ready for bed.
Well we have had an eventful couple of weeks. Aunt T (our friend Tricia) came in to visit. Milo had her first trip to the beach, first time to the botanical gardens, first time riding facing out in her carrier, first Grill out, and lots of other firsts…. when you are as new as she is, everything is a first. My grandparents (Rose and Fred Fox) are now visiting. But I just wanted to add a few pics so we dont get too behind.
