Fire Station Visit

This week Milo and I went on a tour of the Clay Fire Station with Mothers & More. Milo was so excited to go, he knew about it five days in advance and would count down the days with me. One funny part was when we were in the kitchen. Captain Jay was telling us about meal time and had one cabinet open. Of course my son goes over and looks in there while the other kids are listening quietly. Milo looks at me and says, "Stuff in there!" I thought it was funny...

Milo helped me sweep the kitchen floor last week. He really made me laugh when I had the video camera on him and he swept under the oven. As I'm typing this he looked at the picture and said, "That's me in the picture!"

One of Jesse's coworkers has been bugging him to come and take this Jeep ever since she found out we were having a boy almost three years ago! He and Milo finally went and got it Monday night and once it was fully charged, Milo isn't too comfortable with how fast it goes. He actually drove it a bit around the yard today, so he'll get used to it.

Here are some of the pictures from the fire station:

The best picture I got of Milo the whole time! He's standing in a fire truck.

Checking out the Command Vehicle, making sure it was in working order.

A little dark but from left to right: Ben, Brady, Lucas, and Milo next to a fire truck.

Milo sitting on the back of a fire truck. Later on I had him stand on the back of it and he turned around, got very excited, pointed and seriously squealed, "Another fire truck!" I think that's what he's looking at in this picture, the big ladder truck in front of him.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

We heard the heartbeat!

I had my doctor's appointment this afternoon and all went well. The heartbeat was at 156, which is good and strong. He also said that my due date is right on from what they thought it was, which is October 16th.

Have a great week!

Finally an update!

We are enjoying the beautiful weather this week! Milo's favorite thing to do at the moment is get out his dump trucks and shovels and dig. He'll do that for an hour straight, it makes me smile!

Here are some new pictures:

I put Milo down for his nap today and after 15 minutes he told me he was done sleeping. I told him no, he stayed in there and played for a few more minutes, and then he started crying and saying, "ouch". I went in and he was sitting on the floor. He told me his curtain hurt him. I did my best not to laugh and told him he could come lay down with me on the couch. Needless to say, he passed out. I love the open mouth!!!!

Milo truly passed out after Fun-n-Fitness Monday night! He just looks so comfortable and peaceful.

Milo puts on his boots all by himself now (well not now that the temperature is in the 60's). As he went to leave for Fun-n-Fitness two weeks ago he put them on the wrong feet. It was just so cute that I had to take a close-up of them!

This is Milo all impressed with himself for putting on his boots.....a whole body picture.

This is the tunnel that Milo played with as a baby. He keeps getting it out of his closet to play with, apparently I need to hide it better. Anyway, he likes to lay in it and eat trail mix.

Here's a shock, Jesse's son crouching, looking at a motor for the river dam. He was enthralled with it! We had a great day at the park this day.

We were walking across the Saint Joseph River and I love what the wind did to Milo's hair. I finally cut his hair the following night, he was badly in need of a haircut.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
