Baby Ethan: Week 51

Weight: 20+ pounds...we'll find out the actual amount next Thursday at his ONE year appointment!

Health: Ethan's had a little bit of a runny nose this past week which has unfortunately impacted his sleeping.  He couldn't breathe through his nose a couple nights ago, which was obviously a problem since he still used his paci.

Sleep: See above.  We're back to waking once a night!  : /

Social: We had a great weekend celebrating Dad...lots of fun in the sun!  Loving this weather lately!

Diet: More and more of the food that we eat.  He loves pasta and bread and meat.  We gave him a steamed carrot at a steak house this last weekend and he was just chomping away.  

Clothes: Pretty much all 12 month clothing now.  And I think we're officially in size 3 shoes.

Baby Gear Love: We just got Ethan the B. Hellophone and he loves them!  There is music and you can record a little message on it.  He also loves this flashlight.

Crying: Just when I force him to lay down for his weekly picture...which I wish I was kidding about.  I've loved these weekly updates but Ethan is D-O-N-E done!

Likes: Ethan loves people, animals and bath time.  Oh and being outside.  Little Tahoe Boy!

Postpartum: I think we can officially wrap up this section!

Milestones: Nothing too new...still standing more and more.  We've gotten Ethan to blow kisses, mimic Pat-a-Cake by marking a "B" on his hand and throwing is cake in the oven, and he's starting to repeat words and sounds more and more.

P.S. I'm guest posting over at Veronika's Blushing today to give her readers an honest perspective and advice about going back to work after baby.  If you're planning to go back to work once you have your baby, definitely check it out.


  1. He looks just precious in his overalls! I don't what it is about boys and overalls, but I just love it! Happy Birthday WEEK!

  2. He is so darling! I love his two tooth smile :) He looks like an angel!

  3. 1 more week! Hope his runny nose get better.

  4. I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown by! He has gone from a tiny infant into a miniature human - and he just keeps getting cuter and cuter each week. These updates have been so much fun to follow along with :)


  5. Those two teeth in the top picture are adorable! I can't believe he's almost a year old. Hoping you'll still do a monthly update on the little guy!

  6. Eeek! He's so close to a year! So adorable and hope he feels better soon!

  7. Oh my goodness, I cannot believe he is almost 1 year old! I remember going to the farmer's market on your due date, can't believe it's been a year since then! :)

  8. i can't believe he's almost one!!! ps some of us REALLY need a birthday wish list collage. wink wink. ;) love his cobalt blue cute! i agree about the weekly pics...B wasn't sad that we stopped doing those...

  10. Found your blog through Veronika. Thanks for guest posting over there. I'm really excited to read through your blog! Your little one is so cute!

  11. Oh, sweet Baby E!! I remember holding him when he was just a wee baby - and now, ALMOST ONE!! Where does the time go?? Wish we got to see you guys more because he is just tooo cute!! Enjoy this next week with your growing boy! xoxo lymi

  12. I can't believe our babies are a year old. CANNOT BELIEVE IT! Mac is a non-stop walking talking eating babbling drooling machine! He never slows down! Unless I tell him he can't have/do something, then watch out - MELTDOWN. Toddlerhood is going to be fun! :)

    P.S. I think he and Ethan would get along famously. When are we going to schedule a get together? I'm in desperate need of a mountain vacay!

  13. Enjoy your last week with a baby!! Next week he's a toddler!! xoxo

  14. It seems like just yesterday you had him! Time goes so fast. Look at those cute little teeth. I love the photo of Ethan sitting in bed with his blue moccasins......adorable!! And, of course with his Daddy is precious.

  15. I am so jealous of those baby mocs! I cannot even believe how fast this first year flies!! It is so sad when people ask about baby number 2! I still am enjoying baby number 1!

  16. He is the cutest, sweetest thing...and I've loved watching him grow this year!!!
