A few weeks ago, while I was making the bed and you were playing in your crib, I turned around and there you were - standing. You'd pulled yourself and were happily holding on to the rail. You've become more and more confident with standing everyday since. You even stood up all by yourself for Daddy, holding on to absolutely until you realized what you were doing. You haven't given a repeat performance for me yet, but I know it can't be far off, since you've already moved on to only needing to hold on with one hand.
You now have 6 beautiful teeth - 2 on the bottom and 4 on the top - and judging from the level of clingy and cranky you've been the past few days I'd say we can expect more very soon.
This has not been a good month for sleeping. You've gotten into the habit of waking once in the night for a little cuddle. But the most frustrating for us is you getting up with the sun, which means 4 am. Not fun. Luckily, a little snack and a snuggle usually sees you back to sleep until 8 or so.
You're cruising with the crawling now. We have our hands full keeping you out of trouble.
You are still unsure of grass.
You weren't too sure of swimming there for a while either, but our last lesson went, well, swimmingly. For the first time you went a whole lesson without crying. You even laughed!
Happy 9 Months, my sweet baby! You are officially longer out than in.
