Milo is almost 2 months old, and he’s had a few milestones. The most exciting, is that he had another ekg & echo, and his heart looks great! the coarcatation is still there, but he is functioning fine with it, and it doesn’t look like we will need to take any action. we’ll go back when he’s 9 months old for a checkup.
most recently, Milo has started to smile! and sometimes it sounds like he’s laughing. i have to say, with a little bias, that he has the cutest smile i’ve ever seen. it takes a lot of ruckus to get him to do it, but it’s worth it.
this past weekend, Milo attended his first birthday party. his cousin Olivia turned 1 and we went to a park in Monterey park for a circus themed event. he’s been staying up longer during the day, and was awake through the entire party. he almost made it through the end of cake before he started to have a little melt down. once we got him in the car and started driving, he passed out.
speaking of him staying up during the day: he’s sleeping more at night! he will sleep a good 4 to 5 hours for his first stretch. we’ll feed and change his diaper before he goes back to sleep for another 2-3 hours. this has made a world a difference on my energy. i can get through the day with just 1 nap 🙂
