milestone: twenty-four months

Two-year check-up went well except for Miles crying and clinging to me at first because he didn't want to get weighed or measured...once we got past that it was easy.

34.5in and 30 pounds. Average weight and a little above average height. Nothing else major to report except that we switched to 2% milk. We asked about potty training and toddler beds but we're not jumping into either one of those for a few months at least.

So right now we're just focused on playing, having fun and exploring all the new birthday toys!! Lots more about the party and pics to come.

almost 2

Miles picked a Curious George party over Elmo, and we're busy planning the festivities for this Saturday. I can't wait!

Meanwhile we have his two year check-up and photo session later this week...and we're taking treats to school on Friday for his class :-)

Miles celebrated his 2 milestone early when we switched his car seat to forward-facing. He really likes it. On the way to school Monday he kept telling me I see you, mommy and cars coming! It was too cute.

Be back soon with a milestone report and pictures!

happy birthday!

Miles has gotten the hang of happy birthday in recent weeks. He got to use it for our friend Michael who turned two last week..and then for mommy this week. So the morning of my birthday I went in to his room and he greeted me with a cheerful good morning. When I asked him whose birthday it was he said happy birthday, nana! Ohhhhh... so close!

He spent the day before with my mom and they practiced and he got it sorta right :)

Later that day driving home from school I asked him again and he said happy birthday, cracker. Hrm.

During my cupcake/candle and singing he said happy birthday to you. Yay! Then he gobbled up part of my cupcake. :) Finally when we were reading bedtime stories he said happy birthday, mommy out of the blue. Woo hoo! It was the best birthday gift.

Ben took Miles to Target to select a gift for me and he chose a big, pink sun hat. Ben said he insisted on it so that's what I'll be wearing proudly this summer.
