Mylo - 9 months

Mylo is already 9 months old, and I can't believe how quickly it feels like it went by.  I guess it went by quickly in the feeling of "the days are long but the years are short".  His little personality is coming out more and more and I love it. he weighs just over 16 lbs and is in the 4th percentile for weight, but his head is large and in the 80 something percentile and he is about average for height. 

His new trick is putting his hands in the air when we say "how big is Mylo".  But he actually just knows that it is a party trick and we get excited about it, so when we went for his check-up he was putting one hand up in the air for everyone he made eye contact with. 

I love the way he just folds in half sometimes. 

more of his trick. 

This boy LOVEs his older brothers.  Last night we were all playing catch before bed and he just couldn't have been happier to be watching us all play and to have Tracen let him old the ball every couple of tosses.   his brothers sure love him, and recently Rai has taken it upon himself to feed Mylo whatever he is eating, I am having to keep a close eye on him and food.

Mylo loves to eat.  It is a wonder that he is such a light weight because he just loves to eat whatever we are eating.  The other night I gave Rai a cookie in front of him and he just started crying when he didn't get one too.  He loves blueberries, bananas, raspberries, potato, French fries, avocado... seriously everything right now.

Mylo still doesn't like to be put down.  He still cries quite a bit and still doesn't sleep that well at night.  We are learning to do a lot of things while holding him, let him cry a little bit while we get things done and just paying lots and lots of attention to him.  

he is just starting to army crawl, although most of the time he is crying and trying to get back into my arms when he does it, but the past couple of days he has done some exploring on his own.  

One of my favorite things is how happy and excited Mylo gets each day when Luke gets home from work.  I need to try to get a video of it.  He sure loves his Dad too. 

He is a friendly little guy (as long as he is being held) and loves to give smiles and flirts with just about everyone.  

He has taught me so much more about love, patience and how to function on little sleep and I wouldn't trade anything for these past 9 months with him.
