Ian has a way of reaching certain milestones on his month birthdays. At 8 months, he became an expert “commando” crawler. He pulls himself along by his elbows, getting across the room faster than you’d think possible. He’s getting good at going from flat on his belly up to a sitting position, as well. All this mobility makes Ian a happy boy.
He also…drumroll…decided it’s time to let his poor Mama sleep. Twice now, he hasn’t bothered to wake up to nurse in the middle of the night. That means I had my first 8 straight hours of sleep in over 8 months!
