I will blog more about Joel later this evening but for now it's time for a monthly Milo update post! I do these posts mainly for myself so I can remember his progress and growth every month. I must admit these last 11 months have gone by so quickly that it's good for me to be able to go back and remember all of the little special moments. So this past month he continued to grow in amazing ways. He can now walk all over the place. He still adds crawling in there half of the time but he can walk unassisted from one side of the room to the other. He knows lots of words now-Mama, Dada, Hi, Bye Bye, No no, Yeah and he seems to be trying to get out "Love you" although now it sounds like Lulu. He figured out high-fiving and loves to give them out. We finally found a sippy cup that he would use so he drinks his milk from there. He loves to play with any kind of ball and throw it and play catch with you. Being a former basketball player myself I've had so much fun teaching him how to throw the ball into a basket. He has a blast doing it and is pretty good at getting it where it needs to go. He loves his cars and loves to drive them around and make engine noises. He's also a fan of jumping on top of you and rough housing if you are laying on the floor. He continues to be a human garbage disposal and rarely turns his nose at any food we put in front of him. Lets hope it stays that way! He is full of energy and loves to laugh. With every month we fall more in love with him. His life brings unending joy into our lives and pure bliss into our home. God sent him to us at just the right time and he blesses us in every way. Here's some pics from last month.
