7 Months Old

It's really hard for me to believe that the E-Train has been around for 7 months now. I can hardly remember life without him. (Well, I can vaguely remember being able to sleep in..) It's been another eventful month in his life. We've been to the creek and to several pools; started eating solid foods only to develop a food allergy that wreaked havoc on this face; taken several trips to see family in OK and Alma; fallen off the bed for the first time (if he survives me, it will be a miracle). We've found our feet and love trying eat them, and we're getting this sitting up thing down to a fine art. He's also VERY chatty and his babbling continues to make me laugh and my heart melt. (ask me if him asking "why" 13 million times a year or so from now elicits the same response..) I really didn't think that having a kiddo could be this fun...Okay enough gushing.

A Good Cousin

We had lunch with my family on Sunday, and Ethan and Jack were naturally thrilled to see each other. (okay, so there were more indifferent at first, but they warmed up to each other) I am not sure what it is about babies, but it seems like as soon as you sit them down in front of each other they start poking at each other's face. Well, true to form, as soon as Jack got close to Ethan, he stuck his finger right in Ethan's mouth. (better than his eye) After recovering from the surprise (as seen in the above picture), Ethan went to town sucking on it. Both boys didn't seem to understand why everyone got suck a kick out of the gesture...

Weekend with Grandma Debbie

We went to Oklahoma this weekend so we could attend Grandma Debbie's annual company party. The company had a cookout at the Bricktown ball park, which was a great idea if weren't SOOO hot! (what happened to our beautifully mild summer???) In spite of the heat, we all had a great time. It's hard not to have fun with cousins around!

A Chew Toy

Ethan has to be teething. He's chewing on everything in sight....including his Dad's nose. Anytime he's near Chris' face, he latches on. It was hilarious at first, but I think Chris is getting a little tired of drying his face off every time.

Last weekend we were in Stillwater. We got to see Ethan's new girlfriend, Maggie. They hadn't seen each other in about 5 months, so they had a lot of catching up to do.

"Swimming" with Tater Tot

The boys "swam" last week in Tate's little pool. I really need to get Ethan out more...his skin is still glowing.
