Parker: 8 Months

This has been a big month for Parker.  He mastered sitting up and began crawling.  I often find him in his bed crying because he is up on his knees rocking and can't figure out how to get back down and go to sleep.

We've also done some sleep training.  Up until this point I was feeding Parker at least 2 or 3 times during the night.  Basically every time he woke up if it had been at least 3 hours.  For 5 nights the big kids slept in our bed and Freddy T. and I were on the couch so Parker could have the room to himself.  While we did break the mid night snacks, Parker is still waking up.  Some nights are better than others as far as how many times he wakes up.  He is typically rocking on his hands and knees and as soon as I flip him over he goes on back to sleep.

He only wanted to eat the sign this month, so it was a little challenging getting the date in a picture.
