Merry Christmas Everyone!
Bo had a great 1st Christmas! We saw lots of family over the last few days and it was nice to stay at home and watch Bo have fun with his new toys and spend time with both Grandmas and Grandpas.
Bo has been "scooting" for the past week and half to two weeks, but yesterday he almost figured out how to crawl. He saw his new toys, and that was all the motivation he needed. He just needs a little more coordination with the legs and he's there.
I really am excited for this new milestone but its also bittersweet. Our baby is growing up too fast! Where has the last 8 months gone?? It was nice to leave him on the floor and know that he would be there just happy playing, not going anywhere. But not anymore!
Babyproofing the house shouldn't be too bad, I just hope I don't forget something.

Sleep...it's overrated right? Ha, I try and tell myself that. For the past week and half, Bo has been waking himself up anywhere from 3:30 am to 5 am, just talking and babbling to himself. I am such a light sleeper that I wake up to it right away....and it's hard for me to fall back asleep to it. Kyle, on the other hand, is always sleeping as hard as a rock. So I go get him and feed him and we both fall back asleep until its time to get up (usually by 6). I know this needs to stop, because he's at the age where he can (and needs to) fall back asleep on his own. And its not like he's hungry. If he was hungry, he would cry. I just don't know what to do. I've been reading a couple of different methods of getting them to fall back asleep on their own so we'll give it shot. He's been such a good sleeper up until now, I'd hate for it to end....and I'd like my sleep back. Hope that doesn't sound selfish...

It is just amazing how fast they grow in such little time. Granted, I still consider Bo a peanut because he is a little small for his age (although he is growing good). As I am sitting here trying to decide what I want on my Christmas card, I ran across some videos of him. I thought it would be fun to post an older one, plus his newest one. Here is Bo at 1 month old. I just love the little noises he used to make while sucking on his paci.
