So, in the last couple of days Ethan has began gracefully moving from his sitting position to his knees and was caught a couple times rocking back and forth while trying to reach a toy. Is this a sign that crawling will be in our near future? hmmm!
It is quite fun to sit and watch him play now as he knows what he wants and is working quite hard to get it. He is trying so hard to be mobile; to climb from my arms to daddys arms; or to move across the play mat to get the other toy he is wanting to play with. To see the look of determination in his eyes is just amazing.
He has began to also really study things. Look at the toys and try to figure out how they work and what they can do.
We got rid of his jolly jumper as he didn't seem to jump in it, and we have swapped it out for a jumper-roo that my parents got from a neighbour. He seems to quite enjoy that, and his exercauser, and seems to get a really good jumping routine down in both of those.
I can't believe that he is almost 6 months already, time has just flown by. He is getting so big and learning so many things each day its crazy.
On another note, we have a second tooth. It has just popped through his gums now and is on its way up. So by Christmas his two lower teeth should be all the way out :D He looks so cute with his little teeth!
