Beckett Milestones

Beckett is 7 months and 4 weeks old.  I can't believe we are so close to 8 months!  We have had some milestones the past two weeks that I want to record.  The first one is that he can pretty much sit up on his own.  He still falls over sometimes, but he is almost got it.  There is a chance he might master crawling before sitting up, ha!  That leads me to the next milestone which is that he is pretty much crawling.  It is still a combination of a commando crawl, scooting and kind of lurching forward, but he is on the move.  Just last week I also spotted a 3rd tooth in his mouth.  He has had his two bottom teeth for awhile but he just got the first one on top.   

We are also working on sleeping through the night.  I waited with the other two kiddos until they were about 9 months to cut out that last feeding, but recently Beckett went two nights without nursing, so I thought now would be a good time to go for it (and I have been trying to get him to sleep through the night before Collin and I leave for vacation!).  Unfortunately, it has not been quite as easy as I thought.  He will sleep through a whole night and then the next night he wake up a few times and want to eat.   Every night has been different.  Often, I have to let him cry it out which is so heart wrenching for me.  He has always been so good, I never really had to let him cry anything out, or cry himself to sleep.  Hopefully he will get there soon!
