Baby Ethan: 25 Weeks



Weight: We've got to be pushing 14 pounds by now...maybe more?  We won't find out officially until early January.


Health: A little stuffy nose here and there, but healthy overall!




Sleep: Just when I think it can't get any worse...it gets better!  The last two nights Ethan has slept 6 hours straight, which has been awesome.  We started topping him off with a 2oz bottle of formula right before bed and I think it's helping.  Fingers crossed!


Social: As I reported earlier this week, we hosted a holiday party and Ethan did great!  He was up for over 7 hours and didn't fuss once.  Just a social little butterfly...letting everyone hold him and smiling like always.

Diet: Mainly breast milk, with a supplemented formula when I'm in the office 3 days a week.

Clothes: 3-6 and some 6-9 months.


Baby Gear Love: Anything that makes noise or music and flashes brightly.  He has also taken a keen interest to my hand.  Seriously...I clinch a fist and then pop it open and he thinks it's the greatest thing ever!


Crying: I should probably retire this section soon...Ethan really only cries when he's tired.  Though, I'm sure as I say that, he'll probably start to teethe and we'll have to bring this right back!



Likes: His hands!  He has also taken a keen interest in his hands.  Closing and opening them and staring at them intently.  It's so cute!

Postpartum: Just a little stomach bug this past week.  It's hard not feeling 100% when you have a baby to take care of.  


Milestones: We discovered he can hold his own bottles!  Oh and he throws his paci's...or anything he holds while in his swing or carseat.  He's also showing signs of reaching for us too, especially when he's being held by others.  

Otherwise, we're having fun watching him sit now and be able to balance more and more.  Can't believe how big he's getting...he's going to be 6 WHOLE MONTHS next week!  Where has the time gone?!

  8. So sweet!! Cameron is just fascinated by his hands, too!! He's constantly staring at them and opening/closing them. And, if I wave my hands or dance, he goes crazy...I'm glad that my bad dance moves are coming in handy ;)
