41 Weeks

Milo is 41 weeks old now. He has officially been out of the uterus longer than he was in it (I went to 40 1/2 weeks). As with any marker of how fast time is passing it's bittersweet for me. He growing so fast it makes my head spin and part of me misses his tininess and part of me is so proud of all the things he has accomplished in just 41 short weeks. He's becomeing a regulare monkey. He crawls, sits himself up, pulls up on the furniture (just to him knees, not to standing yet but he's working on it) he is self feeding some, he grabs everything in sights and definitely makes his desires known to the world when he doesn't get what he wants. We are starting to see a little craftyness and problem solving too. When he can't get what he wants the way he is going about it he will change tactics after a few fuitle attempts and try it a different way. He's so smart it amazes me. I have no idea how I'm going to deal with a genius child as he grows up! :)

At his 9 month appointment he continued to be long and thin with a large head. I think it's so funny that none of the little newborn caps fit his big ol' noggin and it continues to be that way. he is making all of his "milostones" and the doc is very happy with how he is progressing.
