7 Months...WHAT?!?!?!?!?

I know it's probably just me, but I feel like the past seven months have just flown by.

Ethan is growing bigger every day. He is learning to sit unsupported and juuuuust starting a few back and forth crawling motions. The little guy is sporting three teeth - two on the bottom and one on the top. He is slowly but surely growing more hair...we are thinking it will be a dirty blonde. We have heard some new sounds recently...MAMA (my favorite) ...dada...baba...and i even heard a wa-something the other day. Ethan doesn't use the sounds to refer to us yet but it's just great to here his little voice , like music to our ears. He is still Max's biggest fan!

I went away this past weeked to Newport, RI with my girlfreinds. Of course, I missed my baby boy like mad and when I walked in the door he was bopping up and down in his jumparoo. When he saw me his whole body stiffened and I was greeted by the biggest smile! Better yet...when I went to pick him up, he grabbed my face in his two little hands and showered me with a big WET kiss...mwah!

loving the swing and 60 degree weather on st. paddy's day!

look at those thighs!

  • Thursday lunch dates and shopping excursions at Whole Foods.
  • Wearing the little man in the carrier
  • Baby laughs
  • Taking monthly photos to see how he's grown
  • Taking photos of baby in general (this is probably on Ethan's list of Top 10 Annoying Things About My Mommy)
