For the past couple of weeks bed time has not been easy. He will be so tired that he will start falling asleep while he is sitting down on the bed then wake up real fast and start clapping! While it's really cute and funny, this will go on from about 8 to 10pm!! I have tried everything I can think of! Warm bottle, rocking, nightime baby bath and lotion, ect...

This is SO typical for this age--an age of huge developmental leaps. Baby's sleep needs also change around this time. My first inclination would be to move bedtime earlier. If he so sleepy, he may be overly tired, and that is a recipe for the behavior you're describing.
