Mih-Mih

Milly’s been trying to imitate things we say lately, to varying degrees of course.  I think she’s starting to try to say her own name now, which comes out as sort of a “Mih-mih.”  She first did it either when we were upstairs and she was looking in the full-length mirror or when we were walking downstairs looking at pictures.  I think it was the former, but I know she did it later in the nursery when Amanda was around. After we put Milly to bed last night we watched Supernatural.  Amanda asked if I wanted to go ahead and watch Persons Unknown, but I was about beat and knew I’d fall asleep.  I did nod off, and at whatever …

Milly in the Yards

Milly wanted to go outside this morning.  Usually I start off on the porch swing and she’ll sit there with me for a few minutes before wanting to get on the slab and play with holes in the concrete or look at (and sometimes pluck) flowers.  This morning she did all that, but then she decided to keep going and went down the walkway that cuts up the middle of the yard.  I called out to her and asked if she was leaving and told her, “Bye bye,” and she responded in kind. Towards the end of the walkway she veered off path and sat in one of the many spots in the yard wherein there is little grass so …

Teasing Milly

Milly and I didn’t go for our Monday walk this morning, as she spent the whole morning stuffing her face.  Seriously, that girl’s going to eat us out of house and home. It was fun getting Milly up this morning though.  I turned on the light in the nursery but I didn’t go in right away, giving her time to stand up at the corner of the crib.  I waited a few more seconds then jumped into the room, which elicited a squeal from her, so I jumped back out and did it again.  She kept laughing so I kept doing it.  We had ourselves a fun time.  That’s a game she seems to be enjoying lately, as I also …

Hush

Milly was by and large a delight today.  We went to church and she got to play around a bit upstairs while Amanda and I finished getting ready to go.  She was a little fussy on the way home, but it was her naptime anyway, so that was to be expected. Amanda and I spent most of the day not doing anything, which tends to be symptomatic of a Sunday.  We considered going to the beach, but all day long it looked like we were about to get a thunderstorm, though nothing really ever happened. After I took a nap I went out to Best Buy after a nap to return a case I’d gotten for the iPhone 4.  I …

Milly’s Barrette

Milly’s been pretty good this morning.  I think she was trying to say “Bruce” when she saw a picture of our chihuahua while we were heading downstairs.  She ate pretty well this morning after I changed a very smelly and full diaper.  Milly also made some kiss noises when I made some at her, though she wouldn’t actually give me a kiss. After I got to working, she came back to see me and sat in my lap on the floor for a minute.  Amanda was upstairs getting some clothes for her, and when she came back down I took Milly by one hand to help her walk to the living room.  Amanda came back and we both held one …
