First he named the cousins: Sharker (Ryker), Uhyaya (Aliyah), Uhyayaya (Melia).
Next came Pax. Pax is one of our new neighbors, and Milo loves to have playdates. His mom is really fun too, which means I like to have playdates. We took the boys to a splashpad and giant playground the other day. Both boys wanted nothing to do with the splashpad. They played for a couple of minutes on the playground... But the day was not a complete loss. They loved the m&m vending machine that was at the park. They also loved the disgusting/dirty puddle in the middle of the bowery (not to the mom's liking).
Then came Daddy. These two goofballs have so much fun together. They live in their own little world. They love to make bubble beards, wind surf on a skateboard using a sheet as a parachute, chase ducks at the park, poke slugs and stinkbugs with a stick, swim in the big pool, kiddie pool, ditches and ponds. Every day when Chris leaves for work Milo will say, "Daddy at work?" I say, "yes, but he'll come back because he loves Milo." The other day I made the mistake of saying, "Yes, but he'll come back because he loves us." Milo yells out, "Loves Milo!" and points to his chest. That little stinker makes me laugh!
