And we Have an Army Crawler

Well, Ethan has been managing to get around lately by rolling and pushing himself in circles, but he is now officially an army crawler. He has figured out how to pull himself forward by using his arms, and is doing a pretty good job. He knows how to get into the cat food, the TV stand and anything that he shouldn't be into real quickly and you can see that he is on a mission to get there.

Right now he is playing with a receipt that was in a bag, which was in a box, that he managed to pull out. What a little turkey.

And of course he is talking away while he plays with the receipt ... I am sure  he is trying to 'read' it, as he does this with tags as well! It is quite cute.

His teeth are still bugging him, We have had a rough couple of nights with bed time as he has put up a real fuss when it comes time to go to sleep! He has had a high fever the last 2 nights as well, which was a bit scarry the first night.

Why is it that the fevers spike at night when it is bed time? Why are they find all day but then when it comes time to go to sleep its like a whole different baby? UGH!

Hopefully these teeth will come in soon though and we can be through all of this!

7 Months Old

Well, it has been a month since my last blog post. I am not keeping on top of this as much as I had wanted to, but hopefully it will get better soon!

So, what has happened in the last month with Ethan?

He is now trying to push up on both his knees and his arms, and is having some success. He has figured out the rolling thing, as well as how to spin around on his belly, so he makes it around the living room and play room fairly well and quite quickly.

Ethan has also decided that he continues to enjoy standing and has figured out how to stand against the furniture. He also is trying his hardest to pull himself up on his higher toys and the furniture.

He is getting so big it is crazy. He has started to also enjoy finger foods like cucmber, bread, cheese, broccoli, zuchinni, sweet potato, egg plant and anything else we can give to him that he can chew.

We have a lot to look forward to in the next coming months and life is getting much busier as Ethan is becoming more active. Can't wait until the spring when he is fully mobile and we can enjoy going to the parks and for walks, and most especially the zoo!!
