[WHOOPSIE! This should have gone on the Milo blog, but somehow ended up here. 'course I've been a horrible blogger over here in my own space, so I suppose I'll leave this here and double-post it over in Milo's neck of the woods. Life is great, busy, crazy, fun, and great. I should be writing over here, but the time and energy seem never to coincide. Eventually, eventually.....]
We are off tomorrow to Wisconsin, to celebrate Milo's first Christmas. Earlier this month, we celebrated Milo's first Hanukkah - this lucky kid gets to double-dip on holidays! Milo loved the candles. Every night, no matter how fussy or tired he was when we set up the menorah, he quieted down and stared intently at the flickering candles, and smiled and giggled as we sang songs before opening our presents.
We're excited to see how Milo reacts to Grandma Eileen and Grandpa Peter's beautiful Christmas tree, and we're looking forward to re-introducing him to all the friends and relatives he met a couple of months ago. He's a whole different baby now!
Here are a couple of recent photos. Daddy has been trying to play football with Milo since we brought the baby home from the hospital, and he's finally starting to get the hang of the game. Brett Favre, you can retire now!
Right after we get back from Wisconsin, we have Milo's four-month doctor's appointment. We are very excited to find out just how big this kiddo has grown. We are not so excited about the shots he'll be getting, but he's tougher than we are.
