Happy 7 Months Ethan!



Dear Ethan,

Wasn't it just yesterday that we celebrated your 6 month birthday?  How a whole month has already passed is beyond me.  Tomorrow, January 26th, you're officially 7 months old!

This past month you have become much more secure with your sitting up...and you roll constantly.  It's actually a little scary with you on the changing table now...right now you roll over to the wall so you can grab the pictures on the wall.  You never want to stay put!  You also arch your back when we put you in the car seat...you don't like to be contained!


You're getting better about sleeping through the night..."usually" only waking once a night now.  We try to give you an extra bottle of formula before bedtime, which seems to tie you over for a longer period of time.  You also move around your crib a ton and we usually find you on your belly at one end of the crib come morning time.


Each month you become more interactive and fun to play with.  You aren't saying any words yet, but you LOVE to scream and shout.  The picture below is you mid-squeal!  It's pretty darn cute!


You are eating about 2 "real food" meals now.  You prefer veggies over fruits, but can be convinced of fruits if they're not super tart.  Your favorite meals are oatmeal, butternut squash, sweet potato and fruit and veggie mixes {like from Plum or Ella's Organics}.  You were not a fan of the berry puree or banana puree that we made for you.  But you seem to enjoy bananas when they're mixed with other things.  Otherwise, you're still nursing great and getting supplemental bottles of formula and breastmilk when you're not with me.


We're fortunate that you still tolerate your swing, and you love your bath time and walks.  Really...you love to be on the go! 


Play time is so much fun!  You love anything that makes music or lights up...and every toy goes in your mouth for inspection.  You also love being around the animals...and the animals love being around you. 


You see your nanny, Bonnie, and Grandma 4 days a week now.  You're such a joy...Bonnie says how good and sweet you are.  She loves you to pieces, which makes me happy to know you are spending time with someone who adores you.  Naturally, your whole family can't get enough of you either!  You continue to be such a social butterfly...squealing and squawking and smiling at everyone.


Of course, the best part for me is picking you up at the end of the day. Your little face just lights up when you see me and you get a huge grin on your face and start flapping your arms.  I can't ask for a better way to end my day than getting to see you.


I treasure every single day I spend with you and am so thankful to have you in our lives.  You are definitely a special little boy.

Love you always!
Mom

I'm so glad i'm following you on instagram now too because I get to see some of your photos early :) it's so much fun watching your little man grow when matthew is just a little over a month younger!! Matthew loves to squeal and scream haha & defiantely does the arching thing too. I turned for ONE second and he was trying to climb out of the nap nanny. CRAZY!! Where the heck did those chubby legs come from!!!! Is it just me, or did they get extra chubby and cute this last month?!!

  29. Natasha he is such a doll!! He is so smiley,I love it!! I love the photo collage showing what a big boy he is becoming! I was curious if you guys are still swing napping? My little guy is 5 months now and still loving his swing and I can't seem to transition him out of it. He falls asleep fast at night not in his swing, but for naps he takes forever to fall asleep if not in his swing! Ekk! Just wondering if you found anything that worked well for little E!! XO!
