Although it snowed this past week, we've been soaking up the sun as much as possible. Miles saw all of the kids running through the fountain and decided he really wanted to join in, but was a little hesitant at first.
Still sort of confused about the water.

After about 5 minutes of watching the other kids he finally figured out he could put his foot over the holes. What he hadn't figured out was that his weight wasn't enough to keep the water back. The water came up through the hole and blasted his foot off and through him off his balance. Tim and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

After the display of music and water was done Miles was rather disappointed. He could have stayed there all day running, giggling, soaking up the water and the sun. And quite frankly, if we didn't have a million errands to run that day, I could have as well.

Mend and Make

Take note of the new button on the right-hand side of this web page. I've started a new blog to document all of my cooking/crafting/sewing happenings. I've watched some of my friends create project blogs and I thought to myself, "I should do that". So-- sorry friends for copying-- I too need some motivation and something pushing me along to finish projects that have been laying in limbo for quite some time. I have no goals with this blog, other than to document and share of the things I've been working on. So go on over and check it out. Hope you enjoy.

It's a package deal with these two. Can't have one without the other. And yes, that's a dog in a grocery store. It's another phone picture I received from Tim a few days ago.

Daddy Spoils

It will be an adjustment having Mommy home full time in multiple ways. With a new baby coming and moving that would typically be enough on one child, but Miles is in for a rude awakening! Occasionally I will receive phone pictures of my two boys in various places through-out the day. This time, however, I received pictures of them eating ice cream, french fries and chocolate milk for lunch. I keep telling Miles to take advantage of his time with Daddy because when Mom is home we're eating brussel sprouts and green beans for lunch everyday. :)

He actually looks disgusted by all of that sugar.
Yesterday Miles went in for his 15 month doctor appointment and we can no longer considered him a "little" twirp. He's jumped up on the charts and it saddens me that he's getting so big.
Weight: 23 lbs (28 percentile)
Height: 31 inches (46 percentile)
Head Circum: 47.2 cm (51 percentile)

Of course after the trauma of receiving 4 shots daddy had to take him to the store to get a "surprise" and of course Miles picked out yet another ball. This time it was squiggly, squooshy and lights up when you play with it. Daddy definitely spoils!
