SOOO much has changed since the 8 month update. JD started crawling shortly after 8 months, and about a week later started pulling up to everything. So to say this month has been busy, is such an understatement. Luckily, so far he hasn't shown too much interest in the stairs, so that is good.
Eating is still going really well. He is down to three bottles a day, and then 3 meals and 1 snack. I am noticing he is showing much less interest in his bottles, so I am starting to lessen the amount. Sleep is AMAZING. He naps every morning from about 9:30 to 11 (which happens to be the perfect timing while his big sis is at preschool) and then again from 1-3 (which is when big sis naps also). He goes down at 8 pm, the same time as Matthew and Lillian, and sleeps all night. He does wake up around 7, during the week it is when we need to get moving anyway, but on weekends it isn't too fun.
Another HUGE milestone this month was having a babysitter! We left the kids with a sitter for the first time ever and it couldn't have gone better. He played, ate well, took his bottle, and went down right at 8pm. I was amazed and am excited to be able to have date nights every so often!
