Will is now 10 months. I can hardly believe that he's almost 1 and I can only imagine how much faster he'll continue to grow. He's doing so much moving now; crawling, standing, walking along the edge of the couch and he still loves bouncing. He no longer uses his bouncy horse, but rather he perches up on his knees and bounces up and down. It's so cute!
About 4 weeks ago, we began letting him cry himself to sleep, so that he didn't require to be nursed or rocked to sleep. What a process! Of course it's always SO hard to listen to your baby cry and cry, but we were strong! After a week, it clicked and he was "sleeping like a baby." :) Now he goes down at 7pm for bed and wakes up at about 8:30am. It's wonderful.
He's also got 4 teeth, (2 on bottom, 2 on top) and he eats like a horse. His favorite things to eat are pears, strawberries, blueberry oatmeal and cheesies (whole wheat tortilla with a little cheese). I swear this kid eats as much as I do. At 10m he weighs 25-26 lbs. He's a growing (and growing and growing) boy!
We've also decided to switch Will to cloth diapers. We found out that there are MANY different types of cloth diapers available out there. After asking friends who use cloth and researching online we chose all in one pocket diapers called "happy heinys." After working out the kinks they seem to be working quite well and they're pretty darn adorable, too. It's been about 5 weeks since we started...I'd say we've adjusted quite well. It's not nearly as disgusting as I thought...and really not that much extra work. Plus it's a great way to save money and the environment!
