8 months old

Holy moly time is flying by. Our little man is 8 months old now. He has 3 teeth. Eats everything. He is like a puppy and cheese anything he can touch. If you are eating, you need to be sharing with him. He started crawling on all 4’s Jan 17th ish…. And not much longer started pulling himself up. He doesn’t want to be on the floor. He wants to be standing. He tries so hard….and falls hard too. Clark wants to walk. I have to get the toy out of the garage and clean it up. Poor babe thinks he is being left behind since he isn’t walking and everyone else is.

Clark 8 months old

I am still getting used to the decision that I cannot be a surrogate again. It was such an amazing experience and so fulfilling.

If anyone has questions about surrogacy, I would be more than happy to help answer them based on my experience alone.

7 Months old

Clark started to really crawl yesterday. He got better at it today. I am sure tomorrow he will be a master at it. He tries to pull himself up. He will be mastering that soon as well. He tries to talk and babble. It’s cute.

He has some separation anxiety. Mostly with me. If he even sees me and I am not coming to get him, he has a meltdown. It makes trying to get anything done difficult.

He has gotten better with sleeping. Goes down by 8:30 usually wakes around 1 am for milk and can typically make it until 6 before needing more milk. Unfortunately he has began needing more milk at night to get by. 😩 He has also been trying out those new chompers he has. Biting hurts a lot.

Any advice to get him to stop biting? It surprises me and I scream and say no bite as I rip my nip out of his mouth. Hopefully this phase doesn’t last too much longer. Ouch.
