Eight months was a rough one for our family but, just like always, Jesus was so faithful and we made it through. Griffin had to spend another night in the hospital for seizures and while I was trying to take care of him, I was pretty sure you were getting another ear infection. I was so torn as I needed to be with Griffin in the hospital but knew that would mean spending another night away from you. Thankfully Grammy was here to help us and take care of you. She even took you to the doctor the next day…sure enough, it was another double ear infection! No wonder you were cranky. While Grammy was staying with us she helped me sleep train you. I was so worn out physically and emotionally and I just couldn’t bare to hear you cry. We did a lot of snuggling but not much sleeping. So now you are sleeping in your crib in your room and taking two good naps. We are all feeling so much better about that! You are still waking up at night but hopefully we will get to sleeping through the night soon.
Don’t worry, there have been some fun things about eight months too. You have the sweetest two-teeth smile. You started clapping on April 13 and haven’t stopped since. You love being outside. You get so excited when I open the back door. We are all loving the nice weather. And you are still a big boy. You are wearing 12-18 month clothes and size 4 diapers. Oh, and I can’t forget that you said your first word…it was “dada” of course! I can’t wait to hear your sweet voice say mama.
