So sorry if you've not been able to get the video link to work for you. Novice blogger at the controls here, so will hopefully get all figured out soon. Below are more pics from Miles's eventful Saturday. What a big kid he is : )
Post-walking group hug.

And now, back to my first love, jumping.

Milkmouth carrotface.

Fond of the finger.

Just darned cute.


Yup, perhaps in honor of Craig's graduation, Miles began taking a step or two on Friday, and we were lucky enough to capture him doing so on Saturday. With Nana, Papa Gayle, Brooke, and CJ in the audience, Miles must have been inspired. Looks like we're on our way folks! And if that weren't enough, Monkey Man's top teeth are finally making their much anticipated appearance! The times, they are a-changin'!

SICK DAY and Other Stuff

Just because we made it through cold and flu season doesn't mean we left those pesky ear infections behind, nosiree! Ear infection No. 3 arrived Wednesday with a vengence. Miles's temperature hit upwards of 104 (quickly) before we realized we weren't just dealing with teething here. We whisked him away to ol' Doc Slaymaker's office and returned bearing antibiotics and free Motrin (score). Given all that, naturally, a sick day was in order. Miles had a rough night last night but seems to be doing much better today, as you'll see in the following pics............he really was sick you guys, really! This was not just a 'sick' day for Mom -- though I'd be lying like a rug if I didn't say that I loved being home with the monkey : ) -- please note the following: Kleenex box in foreground for perpetually runny nose and vacuum cleaner in background for, well, I'm not exactly sure how it relates but I do know that I'm going to ask Craig to put it to use this weekend. ANYWAY, back to Miles.
Feeling better, a/k/a not crying --

Excited to be playing with Smelly Cat's tail--

Wait, wait, is that a smile I feel coming? I think it is, I think it is!


Life is good. I think a full recovery is likely in my immediate future and with any luck, my wards will catch this a little sooner next time, thanks very much!

OTHER STUFF (pictures I mean)

Concentrate, c-o-n-c-e-n-t-r-a-t-e....

Ah, sweet success.

Break it down!
