Ethan is 12 weeks old today! Here he is waking up and he is soooo happy when he wakes up. Anytime he is laying down, he is very chatty & giggly. It's so funny.
We also have been noticing that he is getting better at grabbing things. In his swing, he has a monkey toy that hangs and has a handle to pull for music to play. We pull it for him when he's in the swing and recently, he started reaching for it. Yesterday, I looked over when I heard the music and saw he pulled the handle himself!
In the bathtub, I handed him a little bath toy. He took it with one hand and pulled his other hand up to hold onto it. That was a new thing!
Still inconsistent with sleeping at night. Still battling the swaddle. He can't go to sleep without it but for the 2nd part of the night, he breaks out of it. We've found him with his feet hanging out and only his top swaddled but his arms are sort of free. It's a pain. We tried to put him in the sleep sack but that thing doesn't hold his arms down at all. I think its kind of early to not swaddle his arms but the 2nd half of the night is such a pain with this thing.
Here's Ethan with Mom & Dad
This week, I left E's car seat on his stroller outside. It just so happened to rain that night (light rain) and his carseat got wet. I threw the seat cover in the dryer before taking him out. It was the funnies thing when I put the warm cover on him(below). He looked at me and said "oh!" like he was surprised it was warm. haha
This week has been an off week for us. He has been falling asleep after eating in the morning and sleeping for an hour. Normally he is up, eats, up for an hour and a half....One day he was more quiet than usual. We figured he was growing and sure enough, I checked the Wonder Weeks app, and it's a growing week.
This week, we went to see our friend Kelsey for lunch. Ethan is pretty good in the car and often falls asleep. He also held up for a quick shop at Carter's & then we headed home.
He loves to go out! We went to Trader Joe's today and a few people commented on how cute he is.
I think he is around 12lb now. I stood on the scale with him and then subtracted my weight. He is just getting longer and longer, too. Tall and thin!
In other news, Evie is still doing so well with her pack AND the new male walker.
The other day, the walker(Eleanor) said there is a new dog in the pack who is very fearful. However, she took to Evie right away. She said New Dog was running up to Evie and running away to play. How cute! How nice that Evie could be a comfort to another dog. :-)
