8 Months old and mobile!

Carson has got the crawling thing down. He is all over the place now. Even more scary is that he pulls himself up on anything and everything. And then gets stuck and wails until someone goes over and rescues him.

He has 3 teeth coming in. The bottom two are most visible and one top one just cut through this weekend. I thought his toothless grin was adorable, but checkout how cute he is now with a few "teeths".

He isn't sleeping through the night yet. On the contrary. He has a very set schedule of waking up about 2-3 times a night; at 12/1am, 2/3 am and 4/5am and then he is up by 6ish. Exhausting!

I started a new job three weeks ago, so I am working two jobs again - mommy and career girl. I had a boss once that used to say to me as I was leaving at 5 pm for the day "So, you're off to work the other half of your day?" I would just laugh nervously at him and leave. I never understood what he meant, because I didn't have kids at the time, but now I totally get it! By Friday I am wiped out.

But look how cute my baby boy is, and we do it all for the kids in the end. So it isn't too painful if you think of it that way. Happy 8-month Carson! You are truly an angel.

Doesn't Carson look like Matthew in this photo?
We have a photo of each of the boys about this age sleeping in their high chair. Joe's mom took one of him at the same age and I want to get all the photos framed next to each other.
