When Alex leaves for school in the mornings, Miles is still asleep.
He is sleeping like a rock star these days.
Twelve to thirteen hours a night!

It's actually a good thing that he's still sleeping, because he is at that stage where he cries whenever someone leaves our house. It doesn't matter who it is. He doesn't want them to leave.

I'm so thankful that I don't have to watch him cry every morning when Alex leaves for school, but I do have to see this...
After Miles finishes his breakfast, he makes his way to Alex's bedroom. He starts out just looking under the door. Then he moves on to putting his fingers underneath. After a while, he starts banging on the door.

He spends about 5 or so minutes laying at his door.

I love that he notices that he's not here.
I love that he wants him.
I love that he misses him.


  1. I LOVE IT! That is the cutest picture ever! So sweet that he notices that Alex is gone! It takes Lyla hours to notice when Liem isn't home ;)

  2. Cute picture! What a sweet little brother.

    Also, I noticed that we are now on your your list of adoption blogs!! I guess that makes it official. :)
    I have been stalking your adoption bloglist for about 6 months, so it was exciting to see our name there. :-P

  3. Lidya does the same thing..When her brother or sister goes to their rooms, she goes straight and sticks her fingers under it...I love it!!!
