Our little guy sleeps in his own room now. He technically sleeps in the guest room, but it will eventually be set up as his permanent room. His quality of sleep has greatly improved since we made the transition. Instead of waking up every two hours (and sometimes more than that) to eat, he only wakes once or twice a night. This of course means that Jeremy and I get better sleep now too.
Axel's newest trick is to pucker up and make the kissing noise over and over again. He loves it when we do it back. He is the sweetest little guy and has decided that he will cuddle everyone now. Not just me. If you are holding him, you will very likely get little baby hugs. He melts everyone. It's really sweet to watch him climb Jeremy just to rest his head on daddy's shoulder.
It's funny to think back to this age with Pearl. She was already walking. They are such different babies. He has no interest in standing on his own or walking without assistance. The moment we let go of him, he lowers himself to the ground. That is fine with me although I am tired of his pants being constantly dirty from the crawling.
