Gram left this morning, in the haze of a very early morning. We had a fun week with brake replacement and beach journeys, plus an excursion or two to the wading pool. We had a roasted chicken and bacon. We laughed alot. I finally learned how to use the sewing machine! (Thanks Pat!) Milo is getting huge. He loves the sand and surf. Flinging wet sand and rocks. Muttering crazy words like "onoff" and "ishy". At Dr. Balzer's this week he weighed 24.7 and was 31 inches long. He started climbing with a vengence in the apartment. He even climbed into the toy box this week. (please see photos) We are making plans for many a Philly journey this fall, stay tuned! Big ups to Nina...!
