Ethan 16 weeks old

Ethan is in a really cute stage right now, (well, I guess when hasn’t he been :)) He has officially found his feet and can’t stop grabbing them.  His voice has gotten a lot louder and he has a lot to stay. I think he’s going to be quite the talker.

He is sleeping really well. His bedtime is 8:00 and he wakes up around 6:30. Usually when he wakes up he keeps himself entertained for awhile kicking his feet and cooing. He eats around 7:30 or 8:00.

He wants to suck on everything and puts 3 fingers in his mouth at a time. I have a feeling we are not far off from his first tooth as he is drooling like crazy too.

He loves bath time. While he’s in there he kicks and swings his arms.He still eats about 8oz of formula 4 x a day. Jarrod can’t wait to start feeding him real food. I’m going to wait until he  reaches the 6 month mark though.

Ethan’s still not in daycare officially but we have taken him twice. He’s also had a babysitter a couple of times and seems fine with both.

Ethan had his first spill 😦 Jarrod picked him up in his car seat and he fell out onto the stairs. I hadn’t strapped him in and the way the handle was positioned, when he grabbed the car seat it was vertical and Ethan slipped right out. He got a big fright but thankfully was not hurt.

I’m still struggling to lose my pregnancy weight. I feel like my stomach is shrinking a little bit though. I broke down today and bought 2 new pairs of jeans in a size up from what I normally wear. Hopefully they’ll be too big on me soon.

Life adjusting to work and mommy hood has been good so far. In a perfect world though I would work 4 days a week instead of 5.
