New Tricks {Fav Foto Friday}


Guess what Milo learned how to do??!!






Hello tan lines!


Yeah.. mid-air.
This boy has no fear.

I was the privileged one to discover this new trick on Monday, when Matt was at a city council meeting.
About 10 minutes after I said the last goodnight to the kiddos, I heard a whimper.
I immediately thought Xandra got up (which is very unusual for her- she all but refuses to get out of bed, even if she needs to go to the restroom... we're working on that).
But I found Milo standing at the top of the steps.
As soon as I picked him up, he began crying.
Sobbing.
He couldn't calm down for 15 minutes.
Then he zoned out/shut down for another 15 minutes.
I think he scared himself.
So we had a good half hour of bonding time, while I assured him he was not in trouble.

However, he has been showing off practicing his new trick torture-technique skill for the past few days.
And our bedtime routine now includes a stern warning request begging him to remain in bed all night.
So far, so good... 
Since that first night, he's only practiced his climbing during daylight hours
(as Xandra watches & happily screeches "Do it again Milo! Do it again!").

We'll be shopping for a big-boy bed in the next few weeks.

the long road

  1. Little monkey!!! Funny...we just removed the crib from Charlie's room yesterday! He hasn't used it months but we kept it there as a threatening tool! Problem is...we never followed through!! Oh well, now we'll just pray he stays in that bed!! Thank goodness Milo didn't hurt himself too badly!!
