Where does the time go??

I can't believe Ethan is more than 7 months old now. I am not sure where the last 6 weeks have gone. We haven't been up to a whole lot around here, but we have been busy. Ethan has decided he doesn't want to sleep through the night anymore. He is waking up about 3 times a night these days. That makes for a long day at work, let me tell you.

Not sure why he isn't sleeping but it could be lots of things. Teeth are coming in like crazy. He has two on the bottom and the two on the top should be be here any day now. He is learning tons of new stuff. He is sitting up on his own pretty good now, he is even trying to get into a sitting position on his own, but needs a little help. He is a pro at rolling over now. He will be crawling any day now. Even though he isn't crawling he is getting around pretty well on his belly. Dave caught him going for Titan's water bowl tonight. We are going to have major issues with toys. Titan wants Ethan's toys and Ethan wants Titan's toys. Ethan is starting to wave, although he doesn't know it is for saying hi and bye and he waves to himself. He opens and closes his fingers but his palm is turned to himself. Very cute. He is also "talking" a ton. We have lots of "ba-ba", "da-da", "da-di" and even a few "ma-ma" and "na-na". Just in time for Nana and Grandpa to come for a visit. Sorry Grandpa - no Grandpa's yet.

He is eating lots of food now. He has tried all the fruits and veggies. He definitely likes fruit the best. Veggies are just okay. He isn't a fan of peas but will eat them. He sort of gags on them but continues to open up for more.

Dave had a nice first Father's Day. His mom made him this great book with pictures of Ethan and pictures of Dave when he was a baby. I think I appreciate it more than Dave does, but I am sure some day when Ethan is bigger Dave will enjoy looking back at the pictures again. Looking at these pictures makes me realize Ethan really does look like Dave.

I will try to get some newer pictures posted as soon as I have a little more time to catchup.
