Miles: You are so fun. Ever since you decided to get on the walking *more like waddling* band wagon your fun-meter is off the charts. The thing that makes you the most fun is that you are really able to make your wants and needs known with your words! You frequently ask where certain people are, ask to go outside, ask to get in your crib, ask for the toy you want, ask to get up or down. You know where your eyes, nose, head, mouth, ears, and belly are. You can count to 6. You know the names of all of our family members. You can say 'Hazel' (Hah-Zull) but you call her 'sis-ser' most of the time.

Welcome back, sun and warm weather. Feel free to stick around. So far today I have done laundry, dishes, vacuumed, cleaned up Miles room, and showered. I get this nice pep in my step when I can open the windows and breathe fresh air!

Hello cruds! You hit our house solid on January first with Trevor. I may have not been so sympathetic towards him while he weathered the illness. I have babies to take care of and two is my maximum. Then Miles started coming down with a cough about 4 days ago and each day has gotten progressively worse. Well, turns out our boy has ear infections, bronchitis, and tonsillitis all at once. So fun. Let's add to it that Trevor jets off to rotations for the 12 wake-time hours each day and it's so cold I can't take the kids outside. January, you have been rough. But I will win.

In an effort to get Miles to look at me while I'm taking his picture I often put something on top of my head. I think it relaxes his face and opens up his eyes--one of my favorite of his features. Yesterday, I caught him with this puzzle piece on his head yelling cheese! I know the picture doesn't fall into the 'rule of thirds' very well, but I still really like it. I have no idea how to use editing software--I haven't got to that lesson in my photography class yet.
I also feel the need to blog about this photo because I have significantly cut my time back on facebook and went through a spree of unfriending and unfollowing. I think that may mean I'm inching ever closer to uncool adulthood. If it wasn't for my photography group and my co-op group I would get rid of it altogether.
