8 months(january 8)

Holden was 8 months old on January 8. He weighed almost 19 lbs. and as between 27.5 and 28 inches. This was a BIG month for Holden.
*He cut 3 teeth between the second and third week.
*He began drinking formula only which led to him holding his own bottle. It was so cute seeing him do this the first few times.(although it made mommy a little sad)
*He began moving all over the place by scooting on his bottom.
*He learned to get in sitting position from his tummy.
*He began babbling a lot more to us and to his toys.(dada is still the only word we've heard)
*He loves to growl at us, his toys, and random people in public.
*He started pulling up in his bed and on other objects.
AND the biggest change was.................SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!
After about 5 months, this was a huge change!! His nights had gotten progressively worse and had gotten to the point where he was waking up every 20-40 minutes from 7:30pm to 7:00am. I have to admit that it was tough being up that much at night and trying to function during the days. I did it though and am thankful that the Lord gave me the strength and patience to do it as long as I did. I did enjoy lots of cuddle time with my Holden during that time, but we both needed more sleep. He is doing great now and has even began to nap better. I love being a mommy and wouldn't trade any moment, tough or not!
Love this face!!
