We made it!

Ethan has finally overcome his cold.  He still has a bit of a booger face but he is better!  That was a rough 5 days - poor kid.  I got a touch of it but I seemed to have fought it off in a day (thank god!).

Since it's been a while, I thought I'd update on the new things that Ethan is doing!

1.  He walks along furniture

2.  He thinks EVERYTHING is a car and drags it around the house.... when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!  His Pack 'n' Play (yeah, seriously), the dining room chairs,  and every single toy.  He just makes me laugh!

3.  He is throwing things now.  I gave him a little box of empty raisins and we were throwing it back and forth to each other - priceless.

4.  He mimics the tones that we make.  I always say "hiiii" to him in a funny way and he now does it back.

5.  He is refusing his second nap, and taking his first nap later.  I assume he is trying to do one nap during the day (hopefully he takes a long nap soon).

6.  Stopped peeing when naked (LOL).  I know this is a funny one, but it's true.  We always give him naked  time before his bath for about 20 minutes, and he has not peed in about 2 months.  I consider this a personal victory :0D .

7.  He's a pro at eating finger foods.  It's nice that I can give him what we are eating at dinner (as long as it's suitable for a baby).

I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones that come to mind.  He's so awesome - I could just "eat him up" lol. (Yep that one is for you dad).

On Grandparent's Day - this is his "Dr. Evil" look :) 

His usual self - eating whatever he can get his cute little lips on.

Playing with anything that is NOT a toy!

Hiding from mom in his "fort"

Sad "sickie" face :(

Sick Baby :(

Ethan has gotten his second cold in his short little life :(  The first was at 4 months old and 5 months later, he has his second.  This one seems a bit better than the first time.  He is still a pretty happy baby but both of us did not get our much needed sleep last night.  He was up till about 11.  He did go down at his normal time but only slept an hour, so he is now taking a well deserved nap.  I just hope he gets a good quality nap in.  I am running the vaporizer with some vicks in it, and he cleared up pretty good.

No pictures today - I don't think you want to see a booger face baby :) Thankfully he is letting me wipe under his nose now - only when absolutely needed of course!

Poor bug - I hope he gets better very very soon!
