Kite flying

Happy Monday!  We had a not-so-fun weekend, Jesse and I both had strep throat, so Milo had run of the house!  He was so good, we think he knew something was up, he wanted to cuddle a lot.  
Aunt Justin and Uncle Mickey went to a sale and bought Milo some new toys, which he LOVES!  This is a singing Elmo that has a microphone so you can sing along with him.  It took Milo no time at all to figure out that Elmo was singing and to put the mic up to his (Elmo's) mouth!  He does try to sing along with the songs Elmo sings.  They also got him a little guitar that plays Sesame Street songs, so he will hit a button on Elmo and then hold the guitar like he's playing it!  He loves to dance and sing!  He also hands me a guitar (he has 2) and has me get up and jam with him.  
We went for a walk last week and went over the new pedestrian walkway over the St. Joseph River.  Milo had a bit of OCD and had to touch each light as he went by!  Jesse was counting for him, and of course he decided to stop touching them at 9 instead of 10!  After 9 he just took off running!

While we were down at the park we flew a kite!  It was Milo's first time and he was so enthralled!  He wouldn't hold onto the kite (which was a good thing because the kite probably would've lifted him off the ground!).  He did enjoy looking straight up at the kite and tried to jump to get it.  If it came down he would run to it and try to pick it up.  
Milo looking up at the kite.  Don't you love the hair standing straight up in the wind?
Milo, that's not a toilet!  The things this kid does with bowls....Notice the awesome socks he is wearing!

Windy Windy Day

We had a very special day today, cousin Kalei got to spend the day with us!  We went to Chuck E Cheese for lunch and played a ton!  Milo is really good at the games where you just drop in the coin and hopefully some fall, he got 21 tickets one time and 44 the next!  I did it and only got 1 or 2....We then went to the playground.  Milo loved going down the slide with Kalei!  As you can see, it was extremely windy.  Somehow I always get awesome shots of Kalei's hair going sideways!

My latest cake....a wedding shower cake!  The border was my favorite part!  We have a lot of cake orders this coming week-wish us luck with getting them done!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy Green Day!  We've had a rough few weeks with teething and fevers from teething.  Milo has at least 4 molars coming to the gumline, along with one front tooth-today is the happiest he's been in over a week!  

We are thoroughly enjoying the beautiful weather today!

We had an exciting weekend, we went to cousin Maizie's 3rd birthday party.  Of course Aunt Robin made the cake!

This is how much I love my niece-this is her Yo Gabba hat with sunglasses.  I know, I look awesome.  
Maizie's Funshine Bear cake.  She even got to help decorate!

Have a great week!

A Happy Milo!

Happy Monday!  Ever since Milo cut his tooth he's been a much happier camper!  His appetite is definitely back-we can't get him to stop eating!  Seriously, he's a bottomless long until all of the food in the house is gone???

Milo got to play with his cousin, Maizie, this weekend.  Given that they are about 20 months apart, they play very well together.  One cute thing I got them to do is push the little toy cart side-by-side.  I showed them once and then caught them doing it later!  

He also loves going in the hot tub at Grandma and Grandpa's.  You can't say those words around him, otherwise he runs to the back door and starts doing the sign for "bath".  

Have a fabulous week!
