9 Months and Growing

Little dude turned 9 months this week, wow.  He has his 9 month check up tomorrow, so I’m not sure yet of his “stats”, but these days he is looking long long long!  In addition to his rampant crawling, he loves nothing more than to stand holding on to a dresser, night stand, book shelf, etc and yank off everything within his reach.  Jude still loves to eat fuzz off the floor and yesterday he got into our dirty clothes pile and bit the button off a pair of pants.  Thanks Jude.  I discovered a new skill he has last night, if you make clicking nosies with your tongue he will make them back at you!  It is so cute.  Pointless, but cute.

We are experimenting with pushing his bedtime back these last few weeks, for several reasons:
1.  We are tired of getting up between 5:15-5:45 everyday.  Too early!
2. Daylight savings
3. S got a new job!  She starts the week after Thanksgiving.  And with this new job comes a Monday-Friday 8-5 sort of schedule.  We have really enjoyed the very random schedule that she has had up til now, working some days and some evenings and a day off every 3-4 days.  But with her new schedule she wouldn’t get to see much of Jude during the week if he kept going to bed at 6:30ish, so we are pushing it back.

So now his bedtime is 7:30 and we are working on pushing it to 8:00.  So far it has gone well, he seems to like staying up later and is slowly starting to wake up later as well.  Last night we managed to get him to stay up till 8, so today when he woke up later than usual daylight savings isn’t messing with his schedule too much.  But, he has started waking up randomly in the night, sometimes really hungry, sometimes just really needy.  We are going to try to go back to some of our sleep training to get him away from this new trend.

And I’m a little late in posting it, but here is his 39 weeks picture!
