Happy 5 months little man! Boy does time fly!
This month, we are focusing on Ethan getting prepared and ready to eat solids. As you saw before in a post, he sits with us at the table in his high chair. I try to have him sit on my lap for one meal a day and let him do as he pleases (aside from putting any food in his mouth). I started a few days ago...
DAY 1 - looked at food, watched me chew
DAY 2 - looked at food, touched plate
DAY 3 - looked at food, and moved plate, put finger inside plate, watched me chew
This photo was from today :)
Also today, we watched dad and grampa start to put up a fence. He played on his mat outside for a good 25 minutes - looking at the trees, laughing at the trees, listening to nature outside. He absolutely loves it!
He's not very hungry, and I can see why. I'm not hungry either and with all the "draining" (ewww I know), food is the last thing on my mind. We are going for dinner to Grama & Grampa's for nacho's tonight....I am kinda looking forward to that :D Worst case, I bring my leftovers home and have them a bit soggy tomorrow (better for the throat).
Here's a sneak peak of our fence being build (Yah - just the four corner posts, but still, you can see hard men at work!)
