10 Months!

10 Months! We have reached the double digits..can you believe in 2 more months he will be 1. Ahhh time surely does fly by. This last month was quite the adventure. Start of a new year and lots of changes.

Miles is really taking off and I mean in crawling everywhere. He learned to crawl the first week of Jan. He really is doing good with staying out of things so far. Even though he can crawl anywhere now he usually just stays in one spot playing with toys. He hasn't gotten too curious yet. Although he does pull himself up onto the coffee table a lot and whatever he can reach for he will get.

Also this last month was the start of the "Chucky face" which he continues to do. I actually think it's his real smile now and not him being goofy. He smiles for the camera now so lots of good smiley pics. He does have the best smile and it's b/c all those teeth. He did get one new bottom tooth this last month. Which caused him to be very sick and tired a lot the last couple of weeks.

It amazes me his attention span so far. He really is good at watching cartoons, signing time, baby einsteins etc. Also he has been better about reading books as you saw in the last post video. He hasn't started any signs but we are never giving up. His lil finger is always in "pointing" mode..he points a everything now. Which my sister read is a good sign that he doesn't have autism also if your child plays peek a book which is Miles new favorite game. He does say no though...shakes his head when he doesn't want something. Still just saying dadda only.

He looks so much like his daddy in this pic.
I am truley amazed at this wonderful lil man. Thank you grandma Martin for your last comment about grandpa's friend and what he said. "Miles' eyes express such maturity for his age and also a definite engagement in his surroundings, soaking everything in and wanting to learn." That is so reassuring for a parent to hear something like that. Especially from someone who has never met Miles to be able to see obvious signs of what we see everyday. We really do try to expose him to many wonderful experiences, really open up the world to him for learning and exploration! Love you all!

Miles gives kisses now...this was the only video I could get but I'll get a better video of him kissing later.
