It's hard to believe that Miles is already 9 months old today. He has been such a fun
Crawling - When he decided that sitting was fun, he went from sitting up to rocking back and forth, to full fledge crawling. Now he is all over the house and he won't be stopped!!! We've had to familiarize ourselves with the whole baby proofing again. My how you forget those things!!! We've kept all the doors shut, and brought out the gate again. Also I have moved some toys so that they are within reach for him, but not in a place where he can get hurt. One thing that I'm so glad about is the awesome fireplace cover that my dad made after Jaycee had a fall. That has been a lifesaver and has become a permanent fixture for us.
Solid Foods - Now that Miles has teeth, solid foods have been making their way into his diet. I think he really likes it especially when he is eating when we are. I do make my own baby food. It started out as a way to save a little money in our budget, but I actually enjoy it. It know what's in the food that he's eating and I feel more comfortable about it. The food doesn't always have much flavor to it, but I'm still perfecting that. Lately, I've been able to give Miles some small pieces of what we're having, but not too much.
Sibling Fun - Jaycee has really loved it that Miles is more active. This means she has someone to play with. One of Miles' favorite things to do is to read books, or rather slap at them. Jaycee attempted to read to him, but he doesn't quite understand that the book isn't meant to be eaten and slapped at. She also loves that he chases her when he crawls and that she can run at him and make him laugh really loud. It's been fun!!!
