6 months

Wow, Ethan is 6 months... that is half a year! I really can't believe it. He is a lot of fun right now. It seems like he's grown so much this month. Here are a few of the things that were new this month:
  • He started rolling over
  • He can now sit up for a little bit all on his own
  • He started eating food
  • He has developed a little temper. He gets mad if things aren't going his way, if he drops a toy, and if you take something away from him that he wanted.
  • He grabs at EVERYTHING
  • He puts everything into his mouth
  • He found his feet
Ethan still takes thirty minute naps... I keep hoping it's a phase :) He still won't drink out of a bottle or a sippy cup, although he at least doesn't scream anymore when I try to feed him. Instead he plays with it and chews on it and thinks it's a toy. Oh well. One of these days he'll figure it out :)

One thing I know for sure is that the love that I have for this little guy is indescribable. I adore him. He is truly a blessing from the Lord, and I treasure each moment I get to spend with him. I can't get enough of his smiles, giggles, snuggles and just watching the cute things he does all the time. This time is truly precious and I know it will be over in the blink of an eye, and so I savor each and every moment.

I never thought that Sammy would get the sippy cup, but finally after 4 months of trying to be patient and frustrations on both sides...she got it!I'm sure Eathan will be picking it up in no time and you be shocked!
