Trying to Escape

The other day I was doing the dishes and I looked up from the sink just in time to see Ethan trying to escape out the front door! Haha! I guess he doesn’t like to be at home.

10 Months

*I completely forgot to take Ethan’s 10 month photo. I am hoping that by posting this will be the motivation I need to get the photos taken. You’ll have to come back for the photo.

He learned to share this month. He will eat a Cheerio and then he will feed you a Cheerio. Although this really applies to anything that he puts in his mouth. He will put his bottle in his mouth and then try to put it yours.

He also learned to play peek-a-boo! He knows to put the blanket over his face and then to take it off to get the BOO reaction. Also, anytime you say “Where’s Ethan?” He covers his eyes with his hands. So cute!

He learned to wave hi! Anytime he sees you he will wave hello.

He cruises all over the place. Not only is he a speed crawler. He loves to walk around the furniture. Although I think he believes that he can actually walk(he can’t) because he will keep going even though there is no more couch to hold on to. There have been plenty of accidents this month.

He also learned to clap. Anytime we start clapping or anytime we say YAY he will clap right along with us. He loves to clap along to “Patty Cake.”

The kid loves to eat. He could eat all day and never be satisfied. 

He now sleeps on his stomach, well kind of. It looks more like he fell asleep in the middle of  crawling. Knees bent, bum up in the air, face squished into the mattress. It is adorable. 30510739387_ORIG

He moved up to a big car seat. I wanted to wait until he was a year, but he had reached 23 pounds and the weight limit on his other seat was 22 pounds. Plus he couldn’t fit in it anymore. I couldn’t even buckle him in.


I know I mentioned this in a previous post, but his favorite place to hang out is on top of the dishwasher. I can no longer do the dishes while he is awake or he will climb aboard.


He also learned to go from laying to sitting. He already knew how to go from sitting to standing. Now every time I go to get him after a nap he is sitting up or standing up in his crib waiting for me. It still kind of freaks me out. I haven't gotten used to that one yet.

Just for Fun!

I haven’t done a good job of keeping up with the blog lately. So I thought I would share one big post about what Ethan has been up to lately.

Ethan loves to read! Anytime he gets his hand on a book he will lay on the floor to read it. Adorable!

Here is Ethan getting in his daily work out. I think this kid can do more pushups in one day then I have ever done in my entire life.


Lunch time is always more fun for Ethan when Mommy has planned bath time for dessert. (And that is avocado, not what you are probably thinking it is.)

My little shopper. The other day Ethan came out of my room with a bag around his arm. It was hilarious. He just dragged it with him all throughout the house.

I’m not sure what this one is about. He is probably mad at me for putting him to bed. He hates nap time now that he knows how to sit up and stand up in his crib. And Hey, do you see those two teeth? His bottom two are in and the top two just broke through this week.


This is almost a daily occurrence in our home now. Ethan loves to open and close doors. He frequently will close a door and get stuck in a room all by himself. Then he will sit directly behind the door crying, because he wants to get out. Luckily we have hard wood floors. I gently push on the door, as the door pushes him back far enough so I can get in the room to rescue him.


My sewing helper. He loves to push on the pedal as I sew.


My mess maker. We have finally started gating him in so I can do things like go to the bathroom without him destroying the house while I am gone for two seconds. He now loves to pull himself up on the toy shelf just to dump everything off of it. At least it is a contained mess.

I know these pictures are blurry, but they tell the story perfectly. Ethan loves to sing his ABC’s. He always sways back and forth as we sing. He even tries to sing along. He is always so proud of himself afterwards. He gives himself a be round of applause.
