Atticus: nine months


Nine months!  This is the age that I seriously rethink these cute monthly pictures.  This boy is ON THE MOVE.  He is exhausting now! Getting into anything/everything, climbing up the stairs, eating the cat food!  You name it!  But he is also doing party tricks left & right for us so that is entertaining, guess we'll keep him.  He is so funny & happy & eats from sun up to sun down!  We sure love him!
The reality of nine month pictures.

Other:
- This month we weaned him from the boobs!  It was a little bit of an adjustment for him but it was mostly hard for him at bedtime.  I loved breastfeeding up until he has now 6 teeth.. so it was time haha  He is loving bottles & mom is still holding him for all his meals, so nothing has really changed much.

- Party tricks: He learned how to wave!!! His little wave is so cute! & he pairs it perfectly with saying HI! & HEY! He also says, mama (sometimes rarely), dada (always) & baba!

- Along with weaning at the same time we were sleep training!  Rough month, I know! But I'm so happy to say after a couple of hard weeks this boy is SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!! Someone throw him a party! We are ALL a lot happier & well rested! Hallelujah!

Atticus: Eight Months

This babe is eight months old! He is the cutest ball of sunshine & his little personality is really starting to form!
