Jonathan is 9 months old!

At 9 months old, Jonathan:

  • is wearing size 3 diapers.
  • is finally sleeping through the night! It started right after we got back from our trip to Miami. During one of our first night's back when Kaitlyn was still not adjusted to the time change, I decided to do a quick trial of letting Jonathan cry for a bit when he woke up to get him used to falling back asleep on his own. Since he was no longer eating in the middle of the night, I figured it was worth a shot. It worked like a charm! It didn't take long at all and since that night, he easily puts himself back to sleep when he wakes up in the middle of the night.
  • is trying his hardest to win the "Favorite Child" award. Not only is he sleeping at night, but when he wakes up in the morning, he will quietly play in his crib. He usually lasts about an hour before he starts calling for us.
  • has dropped one of his 3 daily naps. He takes a decent morning and afternoon nap and goes to bed sometime between 7 and 8 p.m.
  • now says "mama", "dada" and "baba". None of it means anything, but it sounds cute.
  • crawls like mad man! He's gotten very quick and has also started to climb. He's made his way from our basement to the third floor all on his own. Of course, Ron was behind him ready to help him if he stumbled.
  • has stood for a few seconds at a time on his own on several occasions.
  • has 6 teeth--4 on top and 2 on the bottom.
  • eats so well! He's not very picky and he's getting better at feeding himself finger foods. He loves Gerber puffs and Mum-Mums!
  • waves hello/goodbye.

He's adorable. Is he taking any steps yet? I figured he'd be walking at 9 months since he started pulling himself up so young. :)
