He’s really on the move now! Mastered the rolling technique and now loves to roll and roll across the floor. He also loves to jump in his jumperoo and is really good at grasping his toys and reaching for them.
We tried some avocado this past week and Myles seemed a little distrubed that there were mushy things in his mouth (and gave us some crazy looks!), but he eventually smacked his lips together and ate the tiny spoonfuls of green mush. We are now moving on to bananas…fun times!
Two tiny teeth finally popped through his little gums over the weekend. He’d been working on them for so long, I’m glad they are finally in. I took him in to the doctor on Monday to have his diaper rash looked at since he’s had it for a long time. It wasn’t really bothering him, but was not going away despite trying different remedies, so it was time for a visit to the doc. We are now trying hydrocortizone cream to see if that clears it up. While we were there, Myles was weighed. He’s just under the limit for his infant seat (21 lbs, 1o oz), so I guess we’ll stick it out for a few more weeks and break our arms carrying him around in that thing.
Size 9 month clothes are getting a little snug, so I’ve washed all his 12 month stuff. I’m pretty sure he’s going to need a haircut soon, unless we want a baby with a mullet. I’ve been trimming around his ears, but I’m afraid to trim at the nape of his neck since I’m not that steady with the schears and it will be pretty obvi that mommy tried to give him a haircut.
Some of his favorite things continue to be his big sister and his jumperoo. He loves spinning around and checking out all the little animal friends on there. The sounds that come out of him make me laugh. He can be so loud sometimes and shriek like a pterodactyl. Other times he just sits there and blows raspberries. It’s also interesting the things that make him laugh. J has found his tickle spot a few times and he’ll just giggle away. Tonight we were all playing in our bed and we were taking the pillows and “smash”-ing them on S, just for fun. All of a sudden Myles started laughing. He thought it was hysterical, so we did some baby smashes just to keep him laughing.
So in love with our little blue-eyed guy. Thanks for making us smile, Mr. Myles!
