I’m like almost 3 weeks behind on getting this done!
I love this look on his face.  I feel like I am getting a sneak peek into what he’s going to look like as a young man.
What a change in him lately!  I can finally say that he is officially CRAWLING!!!  Woot!  Woot!!!  Of course with that comes him getting into everything, but that’s to be expected.  He is also a master of trying to launch himself off the changing table.  Dear Lord.  It’s like this kid has ants in his pants.  Can’t stay still.  If you follow on Instagram, you might have seen his new favorite thing to do – busting out his Stink Face.  Hil-ar-i-ous.
Another big change has been weaning.  Oh man, so many emotions involved here.  He has become so much more interested in everything else that’s going on (even when we’re in a dark room with nothing going on) that he won’t stay still long enough to nurse.  The amount of stress that causes me from worrying that he isn’t getting enough milk and struggling to get him to nurse was just too much.  I’m sure it was getting stressful for him too.  So, nine months in, I think we’re good.  He has been a champ taking the bottle and formula.  I still nurse him in the morning, but that will be ending in the next few days.  I’m going to have a hard time with it.  Last baby.  Last time nursing and having him snuggled in all warm and cozy first thing in the morning looking up at me.  They grow up too fast.  
Looking Back:
Oh, and that settee I told you about last week?  Ugh…..  It’s driving me nuts.  I’ll update you on it tomorrow.

    Sooooo sweet.
    My first two only nursed for about three months. Baby is still nursing about two or three times a day. At a year and a half. And isn't showing any interest in stopping. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. I'm not really interested in having a four year old who lifts my shirt to "eat".
