Milo @ 7

Milo you have reached 7 years old this week. You are growing quickly and changing from a little boy to a big guy.  You are still a bit short for your age though, so I’ll pretend you are much younger.

Your love of Lego’s have returned and now Minecraft is a tad in the backseat.  You analyze ever page in your Lego catalogs.  You use them so much the pages are falling out and are all so worn and soft. You always have one nearby you.  You love to watch other people’s reviews of Lego sets that you are interested in on YouTube. You beg to do that every day.  For any holiday, all you ask for is Lego’s-not one other thing is on your list.  You know what you like.  You do not like people to mix your sets up and you don’t really like people to play with them.  Keely has been playing with you some lately.  You give Lucas his own handful of bricks to keep him entertained and mostly out of your prized sets.

We are homeschooling again this year for first grade.  You are almost done with the public school’s curriculum for this year, but we are mostly using are own.  You love for me to read to you and you can read and decode words really well.  You impress me with you number skills too. You can just figure out things before I even finish explaining a way to complete a problem. Yay! to that!  You like learning about space too.  We even went to watch the launch of a rocket and to see the International Space Station flyby a couple months ago.  Unfortunately, the rocket exploded but the experience was still pretty neat.  You also made models of the rocket with Lego’s.  Writing is still not your thing.  You want to spell everything perfectly and if you can’t, then you don’t want to write at all. You are taking your first co-op class this semester.  You like it a lot and you look forward to it each week.  We are trying to get you interested in taking up an instrument or trying out a sport this spring.  You still aren’t that interested in playing with other kids.  You are happy to be with your siblings and mostly be at home.  You tell me that you will never, ever, ever, go to public school.

You still adore our pets and always want them with you.  Keely and you fight over who gets to hold the cats or whose room the cats will lay in.  Since Keely is home this year, you are spending more time playing with her and less time with Lucas. He makes you really mad because he doesn’t play with your things the way you want him to.  He, of course, thinks you are the greatest thing and wants to be with you and do whatever you do.  Keely and you are much closer this year and get along about half of the time.  You do yell at any sibling who enters your room. That is sacred ground and the Lego’s must be protected.

You are still very sweet and love to be cuddled, especially at night. Each night I lay with you for a little bit.  I have to tell you a story about putting each of your body parts to sleep and then I have to “give” you a dream to think about while you fall asleep. You like your routines. You are good about helping out and cleaning up after yourself. You even clean up after Lucas. You don’t like dishes or toys to be laying around out of place.  You do like your Lego’s to be all over every table surface of the house though!  You also don’t like wasting things.  If there if food left on your plate you want someone else to eat it.  If there is a broken toy piece, you don’t want it thrown away. “We can use it for something else! Don’t throw that away, mommy!” Your temper is still there too.  You get so angry, so quickly.  You yell, growl, storm off, say mean things, make the maddest faces, and slam doors.  You usually get over it quickly and apologize. You tell me that you just can’t help it and that when you get so mad you just have to let the madness out in mean words.

Your food choices are still limited, but you just started trying new foods on your own-finally!  You even admitted that you are kind of bored eating the same kinds of things. I almost fell over when you voluntarily at some green beans! I hope seven is the year of varied food choices for you.  A new development this year is that you don’t like me to take your picture anymore. You used to always jump in front of my camera, but now you get annoyed and make a face or run away. I guess that means fewer pictures from now on.

You requested a Minecraft birthday this year and were so excited about your cake and presents. You counted down the days until your birthday for the whole month and you screamed with happiness over your gifts.  You are good at being excited and fun to give gifts too, that’s for sure.

Happy seven years my miggity-moo.  I couldn’t love you more!
