Baby Ethan: Week 45

Is it just me or did we just have an update?  I swear the weeks are blending together.  Needless to say, this will be a short post!

Weight: No idea!  I should try weighing him on our scale to see!

Health: Pretty healthy...a little diaper rash, but nothing extreme.

Sleep: Oh man, what happened to our sleeping baby?  Baby Man is waking up at least once a night where we have to give him a bottle...sometimes more!  We really need to try just soothing him, giving him his paci and putting him back down.  

Social: Baby spent all weekend with Dad and has had some quality time with Grandma S. since his nanny has been on vacation.

Diet: Four solid bottles a day...sometimes one at 2am and lots of purees and fruit.  This little guy loves his fruit.  It's also super easy to prep and put on his tray...we may need to start exploring other options.

Clothes: 6-12 and 9 month

Baby Gear Love: Baby boy loves getting outside more and more, especially when get he gets pushed in his new swing.  He loves drawers, doors, and everything that is not baby proofed.  Go figure.

Crying: Still in his dramatic stage...hates being changed, and being put on his back in general.

Likes: See Baby Gear Love above.  Also loves twirling his hair when he drinks his bottle {he must get that from me} and clapping.

Postpartum: Completed my 3 day cleanse...I'll get to the review soon!  And had my second weekend away from baby.  Luckily, I knew he was in good hands and the hubby is really good about sending pics and lots of love.  

Milestones: Working on walking more and more.  He pulls up on anything and everything.  We are in trouble.

PS...I posted my must-have items for baby that come in handy the first 48 hours.  Check it out here!


  1. I love how much they are growing and learning! Cam is into EVERYTHING like Ethan, and has started climbing stairs...oh man. We are in huge trouble!! He is so, so cute, Natasha!! I even love his crying face! :)

  2. He's getting sooooooooooooooooooooooo big! Geesh!!!!! Handsome fella!

  3. Look a how big he is getting! And I am happy to see that i am not the only mom that takes "crying" photos;)

  4. Love how you mentioned his dramatic stage. Haha. His little upset face is so cute.

  5. He is so cute! I am so baby boy obsessed.
    You know, we tried the Ferber method. I was totally against it.. in fact my husband slept on the couch for two nights and handled it. I just couldn't hear him cry. I used ear plugs. He was fully trained in 3 nights. We had a minor setback while sharing a room with the baby on vacation.. but I am so pleased with the results. He never cried more than 3 or 4 minutes.
    Good luck on the sleeping.. funny, even when they keep us up.. they are still SO CUTE!

  6. Dramatic pic is too cute;). Kaden is starting to get up once a night again too. I wasn't sure if it had to do with being sick last week, so I fed him. I hope it's not starting a habit again. I love my full nights of sleep ;)

  7. WHY do they only want to play with non-toy, non-baby proofed items? I mean, seriously. It's like a fly to honey!

  8. i seriously think he gets cuter every day ;)
