Miles has really come into his own personality in the last month or so. He's always been quite sassy, but now we're talking almost bullyish. He's definitely much happier than he was during about months 3-14 of his life. Which is not to say that he's a happy kid all the time now, but wow, so much better.
We've started to do timeouts in the corner for misbehavior. For example, purposely scratching your sister across the face because she won't let you open her dresser drawer and remove it's contents... not okay.
He's finally started to take a liking to things. His favorites at 19 mos: puzzles, LEGOS (Yay! A boy toy!), balls (though not nearly as obsessively as some boys), and The Wiggles.
He recognizes things at the store, like Dora and Elmo and gets so excited. He does still get really excited about playing Polly Pockets with the girls, but he can easily spend an hour engrossed in those awesome Duplos, or MegaBloks. We have a very limited supply, so I'm in the market (preferably garage sale!).
Watching him play an figure things out is just TOO cool. Having a boy kinda rocks.
