The one you've all been waiting for.

The update on Wyatt. Lots of pics, lots of video.

He's now in 9 month clothes! The 6 month size still fits him in the body, but he is way too long for them now!

He sleeps in his own crib (in his own room!!) 90% of the time. I have a rule now that when he wakes up if it's after 5 am, he can come in with us, before 5 and it's back to the crib you go! It was a rocky road getting to this point, but now that we're here, it couldn't be any better. He has actually started sleeping through the night! Not everytime, but we're getting there!

We have a pretty strict nighttime routine: dinner (cereal with fruit/veggies added), bath, playtime, story (while nursing) then bed. This all starts at around 7 and he's usually down for the count by 8.

He is eating like crazy! I can't even tell you all the foods we've tried! Pears, mango, carrots, sweet potato, peas, green beans, oatmeal, banana, squash the list goes on and on! And he loves them all! The green beans took some getting used to, but he eats them now! He has solid food for breakfast, lunch a dinner, and plenty of milk in between! He is (unfortunately) getting more formula than breastmilk at this point. There has been so much stress in my life right now, my supply is seriously hurting. I still have a goal to make it to 9 months, but I don't think I'll be pumping after we hit that mark. I'm not getting enough to justify the stress it adds to my day.

He's definitely mobile! We call this one the worm!

But that didn't last very long!

Now he is literally all over the place. Nothing is safe now. We are amazed at the random things that catch his interest. Like the DVD shelf. I swear, DVD cases are his favorite toy!

He loves to chase the dogs. He sits back and just laughs and laughs while they run circles around him.

He also loves bath time. He is getting too big for the baby tub, so I need to get a bath ring for him. Which is easier said than done, as only Buy Buy Baby carries them (since I'm boycotting kid to kid) and there are only two in the whole city.  (Please don't mind me talking. Scott didn't tell me we were making a video)

He is also getting into trouble. We walked into his room today when he woke up from nap, and this is what we saw.

Yes, that is my 7 month old. Why yes, he did pull himself up to standing when he woke up. And yes, we had already lowered the mattress once. Yes, we lowered it again today. Want to see it again?

Yeah. He's a daredevil allright. I have a feeling he's going to keep us on our toes for sure!

i think that last picture of him standing up is the cutest thing ever seen, especially with the story behind it.

OMG! I can't believe he's crawling! He's only like a week and a half older than Brayden, and I have no idea when he's gonna start doing this! He just started sitting up completely on his own (like reaching and playing with toys) a couple of weeks ago. So amazing!
