Toby is becoming more mobile which is both a blessing and a challenge. Blessing: he entertains himself for longer periods. Challenge: he gets into EVERYTHING and I can't turn my back for a second. He's still getting the hang of it, but he gets better everyday. Its weird how fast he picked it up though; it was like as soon as he turned 8 months, like to the day, he started making an effort to crawl. I thought he was just going to roll around forever because he never seems interested.
And thanks to everyone who commented or emailed words of encouragement or helpful suggestions regarding my last post. Its nice to know others have been through the same thing. Sometimes I feel like I am surrounded by first time mom's who have easy baby's that really don't demand too much from them during the day and that sleep soundly through the night. Toby is definitely a challenge, but he is teaching me so much (especially PATIENCE). And I am happy to report that things are getting better! The past couple nights he slept much longer than he has in quite a while. Wahoo! Now lets just hope I don't jinx myself by typing that. :)
