Nine months. 

I can't believe that he is closing in on a year!

BTW- All that crazy hair in the corner belongs to Hannah. Yes, she does have some. Yes, it is totally wild. And, yes, Matthew likes to keep it wrapped in his fat little fingers any chance he gets!

I was excited and sad to see that this shirt fits him now. He got it from his Gramma and Papa when they went to Australia. They came back the day he was born so we have been waiting and waiting and waiting... for it to fit. Now, I am all torn apart. It fits him really well, which is exciting but I am a teeny bit sad that he is big enough for it.

Oh, the conflict. It is hard to be a mother.

He is still really goodnatured. Obviously.

I have to say that he is beginning to have some moments that make me want to cry, especially in the middle of the night. He has been really restless and then will just start screaming bloody murder. I think that he is having some stomach issues right now. It has been bad the last 4 or 5 nights. He is up for HOURS crying. We are beginning the elimination of foods process now.  Hopefully we will get it figured out soon, for his sake and ours.

He is still very sweet. He LOVES to give kisses. Whenever one of the other kids is crying he will crawl there as fast as his chubby little legs will go and get right in their face trying to suck it off.

He is very busy. As in never still. He loves any kind of stick. Broom, actual sticks, poles, drumsticks, the stick from the balloon, etc. He likes to pound on anything he can find with them.

The three season room seems to be his favorite place. I think it just enables him to see more of the outside world than a little window can. He sits in there and will go from wall to wall examining everything he can. He is a little frustrating to have outside still because every little rock, stick, leaf and cigarette butt goes in his mouth. It is a little annoying but he likes it so much that it is worth it.

Just a few more months and the baby will be a scary toddler.

I can't say that I am excited about it just yet.
