Miles can Count and Miller is an Acrobat

Since Miles can say his ABC's and count to 10, Matt and I started working with him on the numbers past 10.

Here's where we are at now:

Our sweet little man is very intelligent and we are extremely proud of him. He has also learned how to say, "Yes mam/sir." and "No mam/sir." These recent developments are on top of his increasing urge to talk about anything and everything he sees. He is warming up to the idea of wearing hats a little more, as well.

Especially when it is Daddy's hat!

We have also moved out of the high chair at the kitchen table and on to his plastic table and chairs.

He likes it and does a really good job sitting there and eating. Now if we could just get him to potty on his Elmo potty we would be set! That is a work in progress, and we are struggling.

As for our other little guy...he is still doing well. We are incredibly blessed with a healthy pregnancy so far. (No swelling yet!)  Miller is moving around in my belly just like his big brother did. Today, Miles got to feel Miller. I asked him to put his hand on my belly. Miller did several somersaults and Miles face looked surprised and he said, "Mill-ner!". We go back to see our midwife Holly on Thursday for our last monthly visit. After this it is down to visits every 2 weeks! EEK! He is going to be here before we know it.

We are still in progress on Miller's nursery. Therefore, I am going to wait until we are finished to post pictures. On the other hand, we have gotten out all of Miles' baby "stuff". I'm talking outfits, blankets, bibs, cradle, car carrier, swing, and other gadgets. It is fun to see all of the baby things again, but it is even more enjoyable watching Miles' reaction to all of it. He wants to sit in every seat and swing as well as play with every toy.

Here he is in "his" car seat, just cheesin it up for the camera.

Matt and I asked him today if he was ready for his little brother to come and he said yes, but then Matt asked him if Miller could come live with us and Miles did not really care for the idea. We will work on this a little more and hopefully our sweet little man will love his little brother to pieces.
