Getting so Big

As I figured, I am having a hard time remembering to update this thing, but I guess if I can manage to write something every few months it is good, even if I dont write it when it happens!!

So, what is new?

Well, Ethan is starting to 'run' never mind just walk. He is climbing on everything and just exploring his world. It is such an exciting time with him. So many new things he can do and enjoy. We can now go to the park and he can play on the playground, and the slides, and loves to chase the birds. And of course, loves watching the other children play.

He is still a huge flirt with all the ladies. No matter what kind of mood he is in, once we are anywhere there are people, especially ladies, he is smiling and laughing and flirting with them all. Way too cute.

This week was a rough week with him being sick. He had a double ear infection, throat infection and eye infection. The walk in clinic put him on amoxicillin and we discovered that he is allergic to it. After a few days he was completely covered in hives. So, no more penicillin products for him.

We are adjusting in the house quite well and adjusting to life as just the 2 of us. We have some rough days, but for the most part, we are doing great.

Ethan is loving his daycare provider, and the kids that are there with him. He is learning so much, and getting lots of socialization. I love getting his little crafts home and seeing what he gets to do each day.

Lets see, new things that we have figured out:
High Five
Drinking from a straw
Going from 'sitting' to standing - although still working on this

We also have 3 more teeth, making the total now 8! 4 on top and 4 on the bottom :D

Ethan is back to loving the water and swiming as well, which is awesome! Now we just have to try and make sure we go swimming at least 1 x a week :D
