Happy 1/2 Birthday Ethan!!

We have had a busy month. Ethan is now 6 months old and getting big. He now weighs 21 lbs. 4 oz and is 29 inches tall. This means we have to move onto the big carseat.

He rolls like crazy (mostly from his back to his belly) and loves to stand and bounce up and down. We are still working on sitting up. He can do it for a few seconds but isn't really interested in it too much. No teeth yet, but we are thinking they have to come soon. He has been an absolute fusser at bedtime all week.

We started veggies this weekend. We started with carrots and he liked them very much. We will see what happens when we get to green veggies - since mommy and daddy neither one eat green veggies.



Ethan took his first plane ride about a week ago. He and I went to visit Aunt Stacy, Uncle Todd and Emerson and Athalie. Stacy had surgery and needed some help with the kids so we went for about 5 days. It was nice to visit. Sure wish they lived closer so we could see them more often. Emerson was so excited because there were 2 babies!!


Ethan also had his first dip in "the big bathtub". Dave's parents have a pool and we took him swimming this weekend since it was so nice and warm. He got all decked out in his hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. We can't have any sunburns with this pale skin. He definitely liked the pool. He kicked around just like he does in the bathtub.


He also has picked up a new trick this week.
