Milo Smiles, Christian flirts

Milo turned 7 weeks January 30 and graced us by showing off his beautiful smile. He starts daycare February 1 with Ms. Ira where Christian attended from 2-18 months.
Christian will be joining Milo back at Ms. Ira's when his school is on vacation. Christian is all 'boy'. Trucks, cars, buses, planes anything with wheels and of course rocks... he loves school and seems to have become a bit of a ladies man.
With 2 boys, 3 cats, a dog, a mama and a papa our living quarters are feeling a bit cramped. Exploring options for renovations or a move...standby on this.

December 2015 Family Pictures

We had Milo's new born pictures taken over Christmas when Grammy Ann and Grandma Jody visited. Here is a sampling of some of our favorite...even Pebbles made an appearance.



Milo had his 1 month check up on Monday and was 9.2 lbs. Today he weighed in at 9.11 only 4 days later. He is hitting all milestones and growing like a weed! We (Bruce & Jayne) have been alternating the overnights. Milo sleeps 2-3 hours at a time; rock star daddy is doing equal bottle time! Milo's dark brown big and bright eyes are open more and more throughout the day. He loves to sleep outside on the porch in his stroller. Christian at 22 months is a bundle of explosive energy. Everyday his vocabulary seems to increase with a combination of Spanish and English works. We (Jayne and Christian) were reading the Big Truck Book a few days ago and he read out loud, 'farmer, fire truck, tractor, police truck'...he loves legos, cars and trucks but prefers to play outside whenever possible. At school he has two girlfriends, Kennedy who is in his class and with him in the early mornings and Simone who is 'older' and with him in the late afternoons. Christian gets along with everyone and I've had quite a few parents tell me that Christian is their child's favorite person to play with. Proud Mama! Christian is very sweet with Milo. He gives him kisses and is learning to have a gentle touch. He is a great big brother.

Milo’s 1 month birthday

Milo turned 1 month on December 8 and in keeping with tradition we celebrated with cup cakes! We are scheduled able to begin legal adoption proceedings in May. We hope Milo will be an official 'Moore' this summer.nn

Welcome Home Milo

Milo was born on December 11, 2015 in Waco, Texas. We met him on December 13th and he came home with us on December 15th. Milo's birth parents felt that Milo might be better off with another family as they are not in a position to provide the life for him that he deserves. We do not know Milo's parents names but do know his birth father is Nigerian and his mother is Caucasian. Since there is no known family, we will only have to wait 6 months to legally adopt Milo. Milo is our Christmas angel. We'll continue to post pictures and updates on our blog. We will not post any pictures or information on social media until Milo officially becomes Milo Trubey Moore. We hope this will be May 24, 2016 when we have our permanency hearing.
