9 Month Picture Flood

I haven't been posting month-by-month shots consistently like I used to, partly because there was about a 3-month period where it was impossible to get Miles to sit still in his bouncer. But with age comes the ability to hold still and pose for the camera, if we can be quick about it, and it's so fun to see how much Miles has grown and changed in such a short time.

(Click the picture for a better view.)

That particular photo montage is still a month behind (the snapshots are 1 month, 4 months, 8 months respectively), and Miles has now very decidedly been alive longer than he gestated, by several weeks. That seems like a significant milestone.

For family and friends who are interested, here are some current Miles pictures, from the last month-and-a-halfish.

Cuddle-bunny. When he's tired, Miles is a great cuddler, and having him curl up on my chest is one of my favorite things in the world. I hope it doesn't go away too soon.

These days he climbs on anything and everything - shelves, couches, laundry baskets, garbage cans, boxes, his carseat.

First visit with Santa at the ward Christmas party. Look at the beard. This guy's the real deal.

This boy sure does love his bottle. And I sure do wish I could figure out how to rotate pictures in Blogger.


Salt Lake visit with Grandma and Grandpa Tanner and the Hackings (not pictured, but they were there).

His favorite toy is the washing machine. Whatever the crawling version of running is, that's what he'll do the minute he sees you open the washing machine door.

Miles' favorite Christmas present.

His other favorite Christmas present. Almost a month later he still plays with it every single day. Judging by friends' pictures on Facebook, this was THE Christmas gift of the moment for babies his age.

Still trying to figure out how it works.

Cousins are so fun!

Miles loves his new big-boy baths. Am I supposed to put things like this on my blog? Miles, if this comes back to haunt you as a teenager, I'm sorry. But only a little, because I think this picture is so cute.

He loves his daddy!

And he loves dinnertime. He joins us at the dinner table most evenings now, for a baby puree and some tastes of whatever we're eating. Miles loves trying new foods!

I *just* realized Miles is in the name of this blog. Whoa.

Also, he is a total cutie.

Also again, I don't think you can rotate pictures in blogger. It's super annoying and they need to fix that!

What an amazing 9 month journey... glad that we could share some of those moments with you! Miles is adorable and it is such fun to see so much of Brian in him. We love seeing each day's latest adventure or milestone on Instagram and the updates on your blog!
