9 Months?! 9 Months?!  Why do babies always have to grow faster than the kid before them?

It has of course been an exciting month for Crew.  

He now has 8 teeth.  Which is good, because he despises most baby food.  He will only eat banana or sweet potato based foods.  I’m hoping it’s just because he’s offended we would feed someone of his size and stature baby food. Here’s hoping he likes real food and will make some good use of those teeth.

He still is obsessed with Macey and Miles, even though they still can’t be bothered with him.  Miles still yells and screams if Crew touches him, looks at him, or the worst…sneezes on him.  This doesn’t phase Crew though, he is happy with any attention.  The good news though is about 10% of the time Miles says he actually likes Baby Crew!

The poor boy never gets a full nap in because there is always someplace we have to be.  He always looks like this for the first few min after I haul him out of his cozy crib. We are just trying to make him flexible, right?  

He is also starting to be on the move.  No official crawling yet, but that doesn’t stop him from getting the crumb he can spot from across the room. The funniest part, he is always getting stuck under things, love it. Don’t love constantly getting things out of his mouth though, he’s got eagle eyes this one.  

I really am hanging on by a small thread most days and I really don’t know how I’d get through without this chunky smiley baby.  Sometimes I just lock the 2 of us in a room to get myself together.  Bedtime is where he shines the brightest though.  M&M are complete stinkers lately (always) at bedtime and he just goes right to sleep in the same room while they are running around, throwing shoes, screaming, and doing who knows what else  Don’__t worry, M&M don’t know he’s my current favorite and I have a feeling he’s saving it up for later. :)  So, I will enjoy it while it lasts.   

**I just can’t get enough of this chunky blue eyed boy.
**Speaking of blue eyes, Miles is heart broken his eyes are brown, as he is obsessed with blue.  So, he insisits that we all say he has blue eyes. :)
