My baby isn't really a baby anymore which I really realized when I was typing out the title of this post. For this next year of Milo's life I'm still planning on taking photos on the 21st of each month but this time I am going to get some shots of Milo just doing his thing. That's my way of saying that I can't get him to lay down beside a carrot anymore.

Currently Milo is really into putting things into other things. The toilet lid stays closed these days and he has not yet decided that things need to go in the toilet so I am pretty happy about that.

Milo has also suddenly become very interested in books. Up until a few weeks ago I could not pay this kid to sit down and read a book with me but now Milo brings me books to read to him all day long. The above photo is terrible but I had to include it so that I can remember this book loving time. Milo finds a book, picks it up and brings it to me saying, "Ah, ah, ah, ah" until I read it to him. He usually likes to curl up in my lap while I'm reading which is a really nice bonus. Milo thankfully has a few favourites instead of just one so we get to read different things over and over again. My favourite book to read with him right now is a musical instrument picture book because he signs (and makes adorable noises) when we get to the cymbals, maracas and castanets. I really need to get that on video.

Speaking of videos...I am going to try to film a little clip of Milo on the 21st of each month and (this is the important part) actually put it with some music and post it on the blog. I have lots of little video clips of Milo but they are just sitting on my computer. I am going to love looking back at these. They are not going to be anything fancy, just a little peek back.
music: 192 Days by Eisley
Maybe next month I'll get myself organized and make some original music to go with the video...or get Ivan to.

Have a great day!



  1. My daughter is 5 and my son is 3 and during the video when Milo looks at you and smiles, I totally teared up. It's insane how quickly those years went by and how 13 months sincerely feels like yesterday. He is gorgeous and I love reading the updates! Thank you for sharing him with us.

  2. Awwwww! He is such a sweetie pie! :)

  3. Love the video! Though I loved the cute carrot photos too, the videos will be a great change for the next year! Especially with beautiful music in the mix, and super especially if the music is by you or Ivan! I've always wondered what kind of music he plays, as he is sometimes playing guitar in your photos. Would be great to see you guys performing together (you were in a band together, right?). Anyway, just Loving. Your. Blog. :)

    1. Thank you!! Yes we were in a band together for a long time. Maybe if we don't get around to recording something new I can use one of our bands songs for the next update. Ivan plays all kinds of music. Right now he is playing in a progressive rock sounding band called Herd of Elk.
