14 month old baby boy

Today is Ethan’s 14 month birthday! He is really trying to figure out the world, how we react to tantrums etc. The last couple of days have been full of tantrums. It’s hard to know what to do about them. Today I chose to ignore them, hopefully that’s the right thing to do.

Ethan is getting around really well now. This morning I went up to him with clothes and fresh diaper to change him and he ran away from me. It took me a little while to catch him. When I tried to pick him up, his arms went limp. He is extremely independent and doesn’t like being restricted.

He has also become really difficult to take to restaurants. I avoid it if at all possible. He doesn’t last too long in the high chair before having a full on tantrum. Toys aren’t worth the hassle to bring, because as soon as he has them in his hand, he throws them. Then I spend the rest of the meal picking them up.

On a more positive note, he really is so adorable. He is constantly cracking Jarrod and I up. He is talking jiberish like crazy, very observant and copies everything we do. He has been putting my cell phone up to his ear and points the remote at the TV. He loves when he gets the channel to change. His grandma watched him over the weekend and he was perfect for her. I think he just likes to give us a harder time than anyone else.

If you ask Ethan what the letter “T” says, he will say “ta”. He was doing this a couple of weeks ago, but is really doing it on command now. He will also do all of the following if you ask him to; blow kisses, clap his hands, nod his head yes and dance. He LOVES to dance. He also points at dogs and calls them by name.
