2, 4, 240

Here is a little number post from your favorite Milles Family. Which...I assume is us, cause likely we are the only Milles Family you know. And if you know more than 1 Milles family, you are related to us & you secretly know that we are the best in the Family. It is about time you admit it out loud! :)

So here what's the numbers mean. I am sure you are just itching to find out.


Owen turned 2 months old today! What a big boy!

Here are some of Owen's amazing talents as a 2-month-old

  • Smiling

  • Cooing

  • Sleeping 5 1/2 hours in a row at night

  • Filling his diaper with an amazing amount of poo in one sitting

  • Pulling out his sister's hair by the fist full (on accident, of course)

  • Making hearts melt around him...he's just so adorable

  • Being just a good baby that doesn't cry for hours at a time...that is noteworthy in itself & you would agree if you were here 2 years ago when his sister was this age!


We hope you had a great Fourth of July. Here is our picture to remember the day. Aren't they adorable?!? I'm blessed to wake up to these three beauties everyday!


That is how much money Bethany had in her Piggy Bank when we cleaned it out this weekend. $240!!!! That is a lot of money to collect in 2 short years! Wanna know what we did with it.... I'll give you three guesses! So, shoot!

Shoes, you say...No...remember Bethany isn't a fan of getting new shoes.

A new chair. After all Bethany is known to sit in random spots.

More cd's full of songs to memorize and sing along to like "C is for Cookie"? Nope!

While those are all good guesses...I am sorry to say they are all wrong. If you know anything about Cory and I you should've been able to guess it went straight into a new college account for Bethany. We actually opened accounts for both kiddos using the Missouri Most plan. While we aren't able to put the recommended $300 to $500 a month into an account for each of them, we are glad to get them started off on the right foot. The projection calculators for college expenses in the next 16 years are rather daunting and we hope to help the two little boogers out as much as we can. Too bad, we can't invest as much in their college as we are into their child care. If that were the case, I think we might be able to pay off a couple extra college tuitions!
So, there you have 2 month, 4th of July & 240 buck-a-roos for our lil' Banker! Those are the numbers in our lives! :)
