What A Monkey

Ethan is getting to be a very busy boy. He is pulling up on everything he can reach and is even trying to climb on things.

We have a box in the living room that he climbed on top of, and then proceeded to try and climb up onto the ottoman from the box. Then daddy took him off as he was trying to take things off of the make shift computer desk in the living room!

Once he was back on the floor he kept moving back and forth between the couch, the ottoman, and the box ... up and down, up and down, up and down.

He has also realized how to throw things around; toys, slippers, teething ring, whatever he can get in his hands can be thrown.

He is getting to be so strong and so curious. Trying to get into anything and everything that he can, including the cats water and food.

On another note, he is loving giving kisses. I even got a kiss tonight as he was falling asleep. It was the best mommy and baby moment yet.
He was almost asleep on my chest and he sat up, gave me a kiss and proceeded to fall back to sleep on my chest. So adorable, so sweet, and so awesome!!! He is becoming more and more like a little boy and I can't wait to see what amazing things we are going to enjoy in the near future :D

What a Week!!

This week we have mastered sitting up from the laying down position,  pulling up on everything, sitting down for standing up, eating more solid foods that aren't pureed and a new crooked and fun smile!

Last night we did some practicing of sitting once standing, and it was really cute. I looked over at him in his toy area and he was standing at his train table, and kept squatting down really slow. Then he would stand back up and squat really slow but a little bit lower.
Finally his bum hit the floor, and he pulled himself back up and proceeded to do this a couple times. The amount of learning is just unbelievable.

He is army crawling all over the place and moving quite well and quick; especially when he sees something that he wants (the cats, shoes, the laptop wire).

We have a 3rd tooth coming in on the top and so far nothing too painful for him other then the drooling and wanting to chew.

We are learning so much each and every day right now it is amazing. I can't wait until he figures out the actual walking. Will keep us much more busy, but boy will it be fun!
Here is a picture of our new crooked over exaggerated smile ... so cute and funny!!
