Our Adoption Story

9 months and on the go

Just wanted to post a few pictures and videos of our growing boy! Miles is a few weeks into being 9 months old and is officially a walking boy! Apparently he is also able to climb the stairs which we realized the other day.....thank goodness we were right there. He just sees something he wants and puts his mind to getting it! He is at such a fun age...laughing (even fake laughing when the adults are laughing at something) singing...waving hi and bye....he just makes us smile all day with his sweet face! He has really enjoyed his new found independence in walking and seems to be a happier little guy. He just had tubes for his ears placed on monday, it went really well and was super fast. He was only away from my arms for 10 minutes! I am noticing a difference in his sleep patterns already and just an over all happier boy!

Adam wanted me to make sure and tell you all, that if you right click on these videos and choose "watch on YouTube" you can view them full screen, but feel free to watch them here, they'll just be small. This is a short video of Miles at 8 1/2 months old learning to walk:

Excuse my intense mom face in this one...I'm going to have to work on that:)

We have a family tradition of going down town Fort Wayne and eating at Coney Island and seeing the big lit up Santa and his reindeer (which is apparently EVERYONE in Ft. Wayne's family tradition, around Christmas Coney Island is hopping with Christmas cheer) We had a great time this year with our bottled Cokes and chili dogs and Miles loved the big Santa!

Miles first time discovering he can get into kitchen cabinets and drawers

And I will leave you with this little face- he stands at the door and looks out all the time....just wishing he could get outside!!

I love the moments you have captured both on video and still shots! I know these tidbits of glorious cuteness are only the tip of the iceberg with your sweet little guy!

I miss you all and am hoping that you have a wonderful Christmas!

These are beautiful. Oh and thanks for NOT following me on twitter, Adam (I swear, only over the interwebs will I refer to you by your first name. For professional purposes).
