When you take something away he wants

Mr. BB is now 10 months old! I can't believe how fast time flies. He's standing without holding on to things for a couple of seconds and he uses his walker with ease (sometimes on his knees). As you can see above, his likes far outweigh his dislikes now. He's just the sweetest, funniest little boy. He loves to make us laugh. He'll mimic us laughing and even scrunch up his face just to make us laugh. His little (but oh so big) personality shines through more and more each day. He gets up between 6-7am each day (usually closer to 6am), takes an hour to hour and a half nap (on good days) and goes to sleep at 8pm. When we went in for his 9 month appointment, his doctor made it very clear that if we didn't start getting him to sleep through the night now it would be very difficult once he was walking and able to get up out of his bed on his own. So, we had to go with the cry it out method. It was rough for the first week, but it played out exactly like she said. Nights 1&2 were awful, he cried almost the full hour. Nights 3&4 he cried 30-45 minutes, nights 5&6 15-30 minutes and after that, nothing. He still has a random night here and there when he doesn't want to go down but it's nothing like it used to be. A sleeping baby makes for a much happier household...on all accounts! He loves water and being outside and he continues to flirt with all waitresses within his line of sight :)
