There are some "milestones" that are not in the books, but which I think are very exciting. My new favorite is that Joseph now says, "I love you." !!! It is adorable. Every night after he lays down and I put his blanket over him, I always say these words and now he repeats them back. It does sound more like, "uv you," but close enouph. Sometimes I hear him on the baby monitor repeating it to himself. Of course it will be even more exciting when he knows what it means . . .
