Baby Ethan: Week 12



Weight: 11+ pounds


Health: Healthy and happy...and newly obsessed with his hands!  He loves sucking on them and is starting to discover other toys with his mouth too!


Sleep: Ethan is officially sleeping in his crib!  We're stil trying to figure out the best swaddle situation.  His little legs seem to get cold at night in the SwaddleMe, but the Halo sack does not hold his arms in.  All in all, he's been good about sleeping there...doesn't he look so little compared to the crib??  Breaks my heart seeing him in there all alone, but I know it's for the best!

Diet: Milk, milk and more milk!


Clothes: He's rocking the 3 month clothing and I'm trying to keep him in there as long as possible.  Though he does have a TON of cute 3-6 month stuff!


Baby Gear Love: I have to give major props to the Summer Infant video monitor.  It gives me so much peace of mind to be able to see him sleeping in his crib {even if he is right across the hall}.  We also love the pack 'n play, especially with all the traveling we've done lately.  He sleeps perfectly in it.


Crying: Ethan has done pretty well in this department...especially at the last two weddings we've been to!  He's a perfect little guest!  :)

Likes: Baby E loves looking around and interacting with people.  He totally hams it up when we go out...smiling and talking away!  He's loving his toys and books more and more, now that's becoming more aware.  


Postpartum: I just ordered my very own spin bike, so that I can workout from home!  I'm really excited about it since I loved spin so much before!  Can't wait to see how it goes!



Milestones: Ethan attended his second wedding this past weekend and did so well!  We were definitely among friends...there were tons of other babies there, which made us feel more secure.  He even got his own seat...pretty cool!  ;)

And of course, sleeping in his own crib is a HUGE milestone!  He's growing up so fast!


We also want to wish my brothers {Ethan's uncles!} a very happy birthday today!

  1. What a doll! I love the crib shot. Great family photo too.

    12 weeks already! This reminds me of how small they are when I have to return back to work (after Sadie) - boo.

  2. Glad to hear the transition went well, we did it around 3 months too. However, now she's been back in our room from all the wakings, its just easier with her getting up so much now. As soon as she's back on track, back to the crib full time!!

  4. He is getting so big! I'm so nervous about transitioning to the crib, she doesn't love her pack and play so it makes me a little nervous.

  34. Baby E is so cute! Growing and growing - can't even believe he is already 12 weeks - my little one is 4 weeks, and I can't believe that either!

    As far as your swaddling situation, I would definitely suggest the Woombie - greatest thing EVER! Sophia's arms are so strong she can break any swaddle, but the Woombie is designed so they can't get out of it (it zips up), and bonus - it's super simple to change them at night with a 2-way zipper. She loves it - I am buying one in every size!

    Hope you are feeling great!
