let's play catchup, shall we?

milo's birthday came and went. it was fantastic and small and perfect. maybe i'll even write an entire post on it, but for right now i just want to catch up on all the things that have been happening with the little man:

  • he currently has his first ear infection, and is on his first dose of antibiotics. he's definitely more irritable than usual, and also a lot more cuddly - not just with me, but ben, too - ben often expresses how milo follows me around the house or will sit in my lap for story time, but not for him... i see how milo lights up for ben when he gets home though, but it is nice to see milo cuddling into ben as much as he does to me. but while i love getting to comfort the little cutie, it's hard to see him in pain and troubled.
  • he has sprouted 11 teeth thus far - the already established four on top, two on bottom, i may have mentioned the three molars that popped through just recently? and then there's been the two next to his bottom teeth that finally decided to join the party.
  • we're finally having milo dedicated at church this weekend.
okay, it's getting late. wow, okay, maybe not - i just looked at the clock and it's only 9:04 pm, but for us that is late. some of ben's younger coworkers think we're really lame for enjoying quiet time at the library or just sitting over a cup of coffee, or enjoying getting to sleep before 10 pm..... i do miss the days of getting to stay up late knowing i'd be able to sleep in on a saturday, but i'm okay with it. i'm convinced milo's laugh is filled with magic, and it's totally worth a 9 o'clock curfew.
