Matthew is 9 months old

Our sweet little man, Matthew is now 9 months old. He is super mobile: crawling all over the place. He likes to climb, crawl, stand up on furniture or anything he thinks is not moving and play with the other kids. He tries to eat about everything and likes about everything. He is super sweet! He has finally realized there are strangers in our midst and was quite upset when we took him to his doctor's appointment. He wouldn't go close to the doctor unless I was right there. Matthew is still our tall skinny baby at 30 1/4" and 19 lbs 5 oz. Matthew is at the age where church is a constant battle unless he falls asleep and then we'll make it all the way through without taking him out to the hall. He is a very busy body but still manages to be quite mellow. He is a people watcher and loves other kids. Our little neighbor Karissa absolutely adores him and he grins every time he sees her. Zack, Taylor, and Matthew look more alike everyday. I'm sure Zack looked just like Matthew as a baby. Matthew puts up with a lot from his older siblings and cousins. He has learned how to scream a very high pitched squeal and squeezes his arms straight out in front of him, a very curious fit throwing/tantrum! It removes the offender rather quickly though so he knows it works! He absolutely adores his dad and makes sure Zack always notices him. When Zack walks in the room Matthew just glows! It is a wonderful little bond those two seem to have. He is such a blessing to our family. We love him more everyday!
