Happy Birthday Milo!
How weird is it that the first year flew by so fast? Between sleep deprivation, work and diaper changes – I feel like I missed his babyhood. I’m so glad that I’m a trigger-happy-mommy, otherwise I would have no proof of how little Milo once was. Now he’s a bouncy 20 pounder, with a penchant for blueberries, Lynard Skynard and roughhousing with his older brother. Pretty soon, he’ll be off to college. Hehe…Milo Goes to College. (Get it?) Here are some of my favorite shots from his first year.
Although you’re officially a toddler now…Milo, you’ll always be my baby. We love you.
Here’s one of the first shots I took of him. He was about 3 hours old and this was my view of him through the bassinet from my hospital bed.
This shot was taken at about 2 weeks old. His eyes were originally grey, but have darkened over time. They are now a medium shade of brown but sometimes have grey-flecks when the light catches.
At four months, Milo already had an expressive (and sometimes naughty) face.
An array of black and white photos. Notice how his expressions went from tough-guy to innocent to playful.
Taken at 6 months, this photo is still one of my favorites. It comes complete with baby drool. I opted not to PS that one out.
