Milo Month 28 Update

Milo right now is a bundle of little guy sweetness in a package of skinned knees and farmer's tanned arms. He is getting to be a bigger and busier boy each and every day, but he still has time to cuddle and hug.

Since returning from vacation, he's talking more and more in relatively complete sentences and with thoughtful ideas. I find it intriguing that he understands the concept of a synonym. If I don't understand what he is saying phonetically, he will sometimes repeat it using other words. I love this. Over lunch each day we talk about what we have done and have actual conversations.

In other growing up news, Milo has ceased using the binky in the car. Now it is only confined to sleep times. I'm proud of him for the car step and won't be pushing him to stop using his "ba" to sleep anytime soon.

Lately, each evening we have been spending some time outside getting nice and sweaty playing ball before heading in for bath time. This is a great way to burn off some energy at the end of the day. While it is great Milo is so curious and has so much energy, this sometimes means he is darting off when he's not supposed to be. I'm trying to find more appropriate ways for him to redirect this energy. It is keeping us busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
