Happy 8 Months Ethan!



My Dear Baby Boy,

Today is your 8 month birthday!

You have reached an all time new level of fun this last month!  You mimic us with your raspberries, you wave hello and goodbye, you are practically army crawling to get to the cat, you gobble up sweet potato flavored puffs, you rub your eyes when you're tired and you smile and laugh all the time.


You also had your first real cold this past month.  It was so hard to watch you struggle to breathe and have a runny nose, but your spirits always stayed high.


Along with your first cold, you also cut your first tooth!  It's on the bottom left side and I think you're enjoying having the extra tool for eating. 


You're also starting to learn how to balance when you stand up...and you are also starting to enjoy your walker more and more.



In the food department...you are trying all sorts of new flavor combinations: banana + pumpkin, greek yogurt + spinach + raspberries, and more!  You do not care for pureed meat yet {I really don't blame you!} but you are starting to accept more textures in your food.  You also love to gobble up puffs, though half of them fall in your lap.


{your reaction to pureed meat}

You still LOVE the cat...she lets you grab her fur and tail--she's very patient with you.  You will army crawl or roll across the room to be close to her.


You also had your first exclusive daddy time this month and did really well.  You just love him!  You can tell when he gets home at night and you just light up when you see him.


This past month also allowed me more one-on-one time with you and I loved every minute of it.  You are just growing before my very eyes...I can't believe how big you're getting!


We love you so much and can't believe you'll be a approaching one year before we know it!  Time needs to slow down...I'm loving you at this age so so much!

Love, Mom

  9. Happy 8 months Ethan!! When did he start laughing? Christian is 6 months and has belly laughed only a few times.. he's always right on the verge with a huge smile but I feel like he doesn't know how to let it out!! Is this something new for Ethan or has he been doing it for a while?! Thanks!! :)

    1. Hi Jen! He started laughing super early...I was blowing raspberries and he just started laughing. Now he laughs pretty regularly, but I think that's just his personality. ;)

  12. He is too cute! I'm a new follower, not sure if I commented before, but my son, Henry, was born the same day as Ethan. I love following Ethan along as a virtual friend for Henry :) I love seeing how similar babies can be but also different. I wish my dog was as tolerable to Henry as your cat is for Ethan. Henry just started taking off crawling and loves solid foods, but hasn't started waving or doing raspberries yet. They just grow up so fast!

  15. He's so cute and it's so fun to watch him grow! On a side note, I have that rug for my nursery! How do you like it since you've had it in action for 8 months? Does it clean well? I love the color and hope it turns out to be a long lasting piece.

    1. It's easy to throw in the wash to clean...well an industrial size washer. But we do love it! The color is great!
