"Would you eat them with a fox?"

Miles loves the fox book aka Green Eggs and Ham. He loves to snuggle into my lap with his stuffed friend Foxy Fox to listen to the many attempts of Sam to get his Friend to eat some tasty green eggs and ham. Luckily we have two copies so there is always one near when the need to read arises.

Miles Loves Football

Miles loves football. It's true. He loves watching football, talking about football and throwing his little mini football around the house. I guess this was bound to happen. He is a beefy little guy and most of the men in the family also love football.
We have season tickets for Cal Football  and because of his love we were excited to take Miles to a football game this season. Last weekend we finally had a chance make it to the Cal / UCLA game. We totally kicked their butts. GO BEARS!

We decided to make a day of it so we left early and had breakfast at our favorite cafe. Miles ate the heck out of a bran muffin and some vanilla milk.
Then we headed down to campus to find some hats for the boys and enjoy the pre game rally. A nice man gave Miles a bunch of blue and gold balloons. Miles loved them even though he is looking quite grumpy in this picture.
We found Oski in the book store and Miles claimed that he wanted to give him hug but once we got close Miles wanted nothing to do with him.

When we got into the stadium and Miles looked down at the field and was in awe. He just kept pointing and saying "football, football". All he wanted to do was get as close to the field as possible. If given the chance I am sure he would have been out on the field. During the game we took him down to the railing and him run back and forth and check out all the action.
Eventually Miles decided to give Oski a second chance and a high five.
He also made nice with the ladies.
The ladies love Miles.

A super speedy birthday recap

Dear Miles,
I had a wonderful celebrating your birthday with you and can not wait to do it again next year. There were lots of smiles
Yummy food and kisses
Improvised party hats, cake and fun times with people who love you oh so much
You are two now and that means words like "No" and "Mine" have magically appeared in your vocabulary. It also means you are growing so fast I feel like I will never be able to keep up.

Yesterday Miles wasn't on his best behavior and I was having a hard time getting him to listen to me. During one of the many epic battles of will I attempted counting to three hoping to scare him into submission. I said "One" and he turned around with a big smile on his face, two fingers in the air and said "two" and we both burst into a fit of laughter.

The little guy may be a monster but at least he's a cute monster.

In other news we got Miles and new Toy Story helmet and bell for his bike.

Sidewalk Chalk

Recently Miles has been loving coloring and drawing. Crayons, pens, pencils, chalk, if he can make a mark with he will. Hopefully that mark is made on paper but not always. Miles has really been enjoying doing some scribbled sketches on the front walkway.
Miles is turning 2 on Tuesday. He is such a big boy now! We are going to have a Buzz Lightyear party.
"To infinity and beyond!"

Saturday night we got a call from my parents letting us know that would be in Capitola on Sunday if we wanted to come and meet them for an early dinner. So on Sunday after finishing up some massive yard work that had been screaming for our attention we loaded Miles into the car for our mini adventure down the coast. Luckily our departure time coincided with Miles's nap time. So, instead of spending the hour and half trip complaining about being trapped in a car as he normally would he got a nice little nap.
With met up with the parents outside a 76 station in Santa Cruz (There is a long annoying story that could explain that meeting place better but I will refrain) and followed them to their hotel in nearby Capitola.
After a diaper change we wandered down to litlle tourity bit of Capitola to find some much needed food and enjoy some play time at the beach.
This was Miles' second time at the beach and he loved it. He loves that water and the sand and the birds. He doesn't much like going in the water but he gets a kick out of running up to and then fleeing everytime the water gets even remotely close to him.
After the beach we all had a craving for some ice cream and waffle cones. The ice cream shop we found had the cutest little mini cones for kids. So, we got Miles his first ice cream cone with rasberry sorbet. He loved it and thought not having to beg for ice cream from mom and dad was super cool. I was expecting a mes of epic proportions but Miles is a suprisingly clean little boy and only had a couple dribbles.

He ate every bit of it cone and all and threw a massive fit. Ahh almost 2 year olds...
