Just wanted to say that DS is almost 9 months and doing exactly the same thing. He also just learned to crawl, pulls up all the time, figured out how to sit up from his back--and wants to practice it all when it is time for naps/bedtime. Exhausting, isn't it? From what I've heard though, this is a normal phase that doesn't last too long. Usually I can nurse him to sleep, but tonight I gave up and put him in the mei tai and went on a walk until he was sleepy enough to conk out. Being worn seems to help him relax. Hope it gets better for us both soon!
