These photos say it all: Miles officially crawls, and he claps now too!

tooth, part three

The second tooth is definitely up! I saw it this morning...just in time for school pictures today :). He doesn't exactly have a toothy grin yet, but making progress!

tooth, part two

Okay, NOW Miles has a tooth! We've been waiting and waiting, and it finally appeared Sunday morning! It's the cutest little bottom tooth in the world. :) Ben can see a speck next to it, as well, so he has two in progress. I haven't been able to get a good look at tooth #2 yet despite my best efforts.

Miles was fussy most of last week, and bedtimes were rough. We couldn't figure out if he was having some separation anxiety, teething pain or what. Friday morning at 1:44 a.m. he woke up and never went back to sleep. He had a low fever so we called the doctor and took him in for a look. Turns out he has a mild ear infection so that was definitely playing a role in the crankies. Everyone's feeling better now except Ben and I, of course, have whatever cold Miles is fighting. I am so so so ready for spring and fewer colds!

I'm hoping to post a few photos soon...including those that show Miles and his version of crawling (a few crawls, pushing with his right leg, squatting and trying to stand).

We had our first trip to the zoo a few weekends ago, and Miles went to the bunny party. We had so much fun!

milestone: nine months

Great check-up yesterday! Here are the latest stats:

19.2 pounds
29 inches 
head circ 17.5 inches

The pediatrician guessed Miles would have his two bottom teeth within a week...we'll see! He's SO CLOSE to crawling too. Up on all fours and a little movement then a belly flop. It's very dramatic, and he's definitely getting frustrated at not being mobile. He loves to pull up in his crib, pack n play, on mommy/daddy or who/whatever is close. Miles will also "cruise" now i.e. walk with the help of the edge of his crib, etc. His wave is fabulous and completely spontaneous. He rarely applies it for hi or bye. Miles does like waving at Charles Barkley when he's commentating March Madness. Ha!

We're continuing to try new foods like pasta and more finger foods like smashed carrots and bananas. I can't believe he's doubled his birth weight (and then some!) and growing up so fast.
