8 months! I swear his life so far has gone by so much faster than Chaz's did. I am not sure why. Maybe it is because I am splitting my attention, not focused on one growing little boy but instead two! Either way, he is amazing. This baby is still the happiest little camper. He cries about once a week, max. And it may last for about 10 seconds, no lie.
Sleeping: Well, we are working on that. He is much better than he used to be. He goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes about 6:30. Which is great! The issue is, he doesn't always stay down. We go a week or so with great sleep and then like a freight train it hits us and he is up 3 days in a row. Ugh. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, who doesn't require much sleep. Most of the time (99%) he gets up with him when he wakes. To be fair, this was my role for a solid 4 months so I only feel somewhat empathetic. I am still very grateful to him.
Moving: He is a mover. He exhausts me but keeps me active. He doesn't really like to "really" crawl but instead tends to army crawl. He likes to do it his way. I asked the doc about this and he assures me the boy is fine. He said he knows how to crawl the real way so that is ok. When he moves, he moves fast. One afternoon I was in his room putting away laundry, he was on the floor playing--all normal activities. Then all of the sudden I see him bust it to the right, unscrew the doorstop from the wall and take off the plastic topped. Time lapse? 9 seconds, max. Freakishly fast. And with all this moving. Our 8 month "photoshoot" was a wee bit complicated. I decided to shoot it as is, because this is our life. Enjoy!
Michael Strahan. Strahan is a Superbowl champ so maybe that is a sign :) Chaz had the same teeth and his are perfect now. I'm not too concerned. Plus they are just so stikin' cute!
Despite all the eating mentioned above he is still hanging out in the 10 percentile for height and weight. His brother was there too and is now a tall almost five year-old. I'm not too terribly worried about it. He weighs 15.5lbs. Maybe it is all that moving he does that keeps him slim!
