Maikah is 8 Months Old!

Holy moly I'm a week late on this update! It seems like I can't get a moment to myself ever! This little kid is all over the place. A lot of progress has happened this past month. Maikah started sitting up by himself and went right into the "army crawl". It seems like he did it all overnight. I knew I would be kicking myself when he started to be mobile and I remember why. Baby proofing time! He gets faster and faster everyday.

This kid also feels like he weighs a ton. He's gotten so big and strong. He could seriously eat all day if I had time lol. He seems to have gotten a lot better sleeping throughout the night (knock on wood!!), but it seems to go in phases. His teeth should definitely be coming in this month so that will be a whole new thing to go through. His napping is still horrible. He doesn't like sleeping alone. Babies his age are supposed to have 2-3 naps/day. Maikah has MAYBE 1 nap or 2 if I'm realllly lucky.  He sleeps a lot better if someone is laying with him, of course, but I obviously don't have the time to do that with the other 2 girls. It's a constant juggling act.

Kiyoko is my main support when Ian isn't home. She is totally my little helper. At this time she really loves to help, but I know that will change as she gets older. He loves to be with her so much and gets so happy when she gets home from school. Kaya, on the other hand, still could give 2 craps about him. She likes to pretend she's playing with him, but she's kind of scared to be around him a lot. She's been really needy so that's another hard thing to juggle, but I know she needs it so I really try to give them all attention.

The girls are doing great in school and we are getting ready for the holidays (already). It's our favorite time of the year! We hope you all are doing great and we'll update you again soon!!!
