8 Months/22 months-- Spring Break 2015

 For some reason, these two think they need to keep getting older. Don't get me wrong, I am happy about their new skills and some more independence, but it seems like the older they get the less free time I have. I would have thought it would have been the other way around.  Shows what I know. Now that Hazel can move herself around a bit (scooting, rolling) I have to be more aware of where Miles is. He rarely hurts her, but does enjoy feeding her whatever he is eating. This sometimes requires me to rush over and pluck things out of her mouth. She still has zero teeth, by the way.
 Miles has discovered that he would rather be outside. All the time. He goes to the door, knocks on it, and asks for his shoes and says 'owww-sigh' over with increasing emotion.  He gets very upset when it is time to come inside. I can't wait until we live in a house with a nice fenced in yard and he can just go out and play! He is starting to really name objects these days instead of just repeating what we say. He will point to things and say their name. He knows who people are. He answers questions and is forming 3 word sentences. It is so nice to be able to communicate!
We took a short spring break trip to Missouri to see the cousins and grandparents. Miles and Hazel adore their cousin, Audrey. She is so helpful. Where do I find myself a 9 year old? We went to Silver Dollar City and Miles rode his first baby roller coaster. 

 Hazel's version of kisses. Full contact, open mouth. Watch out!

 Miles chilling with Grammy! 
 When we got back from Missouri, we went to the zoo with some friends. Miles loved looking at the animals.
 He was less excited about me trying to take his picture.
 When Hazel fell asleep, Miles would go to the stroller and tell her about what he just saw.

After checking out the animals, we played n the playground at the zoo. It was a successful Spring Break.
