Miles is 8 months old today and we get to celebrate in Minnesota with our families!
He has two teeth and loves eating real food – especially scrambled eggs and hummus! He took his first boat ride the other day and obviously experienced his first plane ride too this month.
He loves to stand up and bounce his knees.
If we are being honest, the last couple days since we’ve been in Minnesota have been kind of rough. He’s *this close* to crawling so this development phase is making him pretty whiny, clingy (to me) and giving him a hard time falling asleep. It’s like he can’t turn his brain off. He woke up 3 times last night (which he hasn’t done since he was a newborn) and every time I looked at him, he was doing push-ups. He just can’t stop thinking about crawling – even in the middle of the night! I’m hoping tonight is better for both of us!
We sure love you baby boy! Even if we miss out on some sleep 🙂 Just please please please go back to your regular, chill, good-sleeping self soon!
Well we made it! Our flight left Charleston yesterday morning at 5:30am (which meant we were up by 3:45) and after a stop in Chicago we landed in MN around 9:30. Flying with our two little guys was definitely not perfect but it wasn’t horrible either.
Thankfully Miles slept on both flights and after running the aisle on the first flight, Emmett was able to sleep on the second one.
Last night we met up with some of our friends at Lake Harriet – including our old buddy Louie who we met in Charleston!
And my best friend Mary’s boy Thomas!
The boys had so much fun running around together!
It was such a beautiful night for catching up with old friends.
Ha! I’m currently packing our family for our 2 week MN trip and this cracked me up 🙂
