Photo Series: 8 Months!

Sorry it took us a few extra days to get the photos taken and this post written...

This past month has been crazy! Frankie started crawling and after about a week of that, he decided he wanted to be standing more. So, he has been pulling himself up on anything possible and has even gotten so adventurous that he holds on with one hand! And then even tried to pick up stuff with that free hand. Once in a while, he will even let go with both hands which makes this mama nervous. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I wasn't thinking he would be trying to stand by himself already! Of course, all of the attempts at standing, etc. have led to a few bumps on the head which I am starting to believe is just the beginning…

Over the past couple weeks, we have been battling the teeth that refuse to appear. When you feel his gums, the teeth are so incredibly close to coming through but we are still waiting. These teeth have led to a few less than pleasant nights of sleep (for all parties involved), lots of drool, and a little man who just wants to cuddle. It will be a joyous day when those teeth finally appear! 

Bedtime/naptime has become a little entertaining. Frank has begun to fight off going to sleep by crawling around in his crib and pulling himself up. He continuously does this some nights until he gets so exhausted that we usually have to rock him to sleep to keep him from continuously moving. The longest he did this was 30 minutes one night. Clearly, some nights are better than others but he has given us several nights of sleeping until 5 AM, nursing, then sleeping until 7 AM! We LOVE when this happens on a Saturday or Sunday morning, the whole house is in a great mood with the extra snooze time. 

The personality of the little man is beginning to shine through. He loves to move (which is consistent with how he has been is whole life), loves to eat (another consistency) and loves to giggle & smile. 

We have moved into the 12 month clothes but still rocking the size 3 diapers. He is a goofy kid and continues to surprise us each day.

Getting so tall!
