Parker Update 8.5 Months

We're a mess these days...he can't walk, but he thinks he can climb up chairs, on top of boxes, on stairs, etc.

Parker's third tooth broke through last Wednesday (12/15), so he'll have at least one top tooth for Christmas. It must be pretty painful because he screams when he rubs something against it and he hasn't been sleeping as well.

We've also introduced yogurt melts and puffs this last week. He loves playing with them and trying to get them in his mouth. It's good that they're nutritional fluff since he ate two handfuls of sweet potato puffs tonight before dinner. He has also mastered holding his own bottle. He'll still lay in my lap with it before bed, but it's nice to give him a bottle when he's in his carseat or stroller.

His last trick is to stand up on the kitchen chairs and cruise under the kitchen table. It doesn't bother me, but it drives daddy crazy because eventually he trips over his pants, bonks his head, and screams like he's been beaten. And then he does it all over again. Lots more to learn!

Today I tried to leave Parker in his crib to see if he would take a nap on his own - HA! After 20 minutes of blabbering happily, he was pants-less and literally hanging from the cord to his monitor (it's hanging on the wall after he pulled it in the crib one morning!).

After breakfast this morning, mixed veggies were everywhere!
