Grayson at 9 Months Old!!

Our little man is 9 months old!! He brings so much joy & happiness to our lives! He now laughs at himself {2.28} and just started clapping {3.14}'s the cutest thing!
Grayson is CRAWLING!! Bradley & I were playing with him in the playroom {2.22} and we both witnessed him make his first crawling was such an emotional moment for me. In a 2 week span Grayson had a lot of "firsts"...he got on all 4s, pulled up, sat up-all by himself and he really started teething {still no teeth}! This is all happening so fast...I was so emotional during these 2 weeks. Since he is sitting up by himself, we lowered his bed to the lowest notch {2.28}...we didn't know what we were about to be hit with! *Separation Anxiety* That night Grayson started waking up one to two times in the middle of the night crying & biting on his blanket. I thought it was because his gums were hurting but it appears it wasn't teething. He also started crying & screaming when we would put him to bed {which he never did before}. We tried several different bed time routines, I have tried giving him teething tablets, and I even put him in the bed with us...but, nothing is working. And, he only does this at bedtime...he does fine for his naps! I am thinking that he's doing this because he can now see us through the crib rails every time we leave his room & when he wakes up in the middle of the night, he sits up & doesn't see us. I am so exhausted after doing this every night for 3 weeks now! The pediatrician said it is just a phase & will just end over night...I hope this happens soon! On a different note, the playroom is finished {except for hanging pictures} and G loves to play in there! He can finally put the paci in his mouth by is so funny when he puts it in upside down because his bottom lip sticks out :) I registered him for MDO {Mother's Day Out} at Hunter Street Baptist {2.23} and he will start in August {he will be 14 months old}, he will go on Mondays & Fridays from 9am-1pm. I am sad but I know it will be good for the both of us :)
