This is my mom 4 days before I was born!


My name is Ethan. I was born on February 5th, 2009.
7 pounds 12 ounces and 20 inches long.


This is me - one week old with my big sister Anna


I was 2 weeks old in this photo and those words are the meaning of my name! Ethan means firm, enduring, and longlasting and Alexander means defender of men.



I'm one month old in this pictures with my sister and I went to the doctor the day before and I weighed 10 pounds! I'm growing so strong and healthy!


This is me again at 2 months old. Now I weigh 13 pounds 8 ounces!


Here I am as promised... 3 months old!


Here I am Everyone! 4 months old! Boy have I been busy lately too - I'm teething, I'm rolling all over, I'm even doing the army low crawl!!!! At my doc appt I got two shots and I weighed 17 pounds. I am 25 inches tall! No big boy foods for me yet, just good ole mommy milk!


Okay folks - Here I am at five months old working on my sitting up skills! I think I'm doing a pretty good job. Also showing off my fine physique as well as my orange diaper!!!!!!


I'm six months old now and this was a pretty big month for me!

I learned how to crawl...

and do push ups *can't forget the physique*

Had my first taste of avocado!

I just started getting everywhere! and into everything!


On to month seven of my life.........
I'm a pro at sitting up now. I can even go from sitting up to crawling to sitting back down. I crawl around and pick up toys and random pieces of paper from the floor. They are tasty until my mom comes along and prys them from my hands and mouth! She is such a meany!

I can sit in the grocery cart like a big boy - I really liked it until mom got one of those annoying shopping cart covers - she doesn't like me to chew on this super tasty bar I'm holding on to. Again, she is so mean!

Okay - don't laugh people - Obviously I should start doing a few more pushups!


The month of October was pretty fun for me - I really mastered the art of "pulling up" and "cruising". I was doing this in September also but I got really good this month. I'm 8 months old now!

my mom put me on this crazy thing - I just sat here and looked cute for a few minutes so she could take a picture.

This is me at the pumpkin patch. It was pretty fun.

I'm nine months old now and my mom still hasn't gotten tired of taking my picture. BUT I have grown weary of this activity so today I decided to not look at her and I was hoping she would just go away. It took awhile, but persistence paid off and she finally did leave me alone!




This is my 9 month check up - Can you tell I've been workin' on my fitness???

This was Thanksgiving time - my family took a super long drive to a place called California and we met a lot of new people and I played with some new toys - ORNAMENTS!!!!!!!

We had to drive in the car for a super long time so I'm glad my mom bought me a nice comfy carseat and this super cool blue cup with a straw!


I turned 10 months in December! December was a cool month - my mom brought a bunch of those Thanksgiving toys to my house!

That's my sister - she is 3 - I'm sure she is going to continue to torture me for years to come. This was just one of the first times.

Sigh - my mom was back to the picture taking thing again. This time I had a better plan. I just went ahead and looked at her and she went away really quick!!!!!!!!


I got this cool ornament from my secret santas - Jenny and Lillian - I had to taste it first to make sure it wasn't poison and it wasn't!


The people at my house were really excited on this day. I don't know what the fuss was all about though but there were some cool boxes to play with and some tasty paper to eat. What I do know is that the next day my mom took away all those cool toys that were on the big green tree!!!!!!! She took the tree too!!!!!!!!!!


It's a new year now and mom says I'm 11 months old. Time to take a pic again! I looked at her again this time and it really does work better. She is done so fast!


Oh, I don't know if I told you guys but I can walk now. I can even run!

I can also climb!

It makes mom really scared though and she starts freaking out everytime I do this...

or this

So she took my new slide away. I was pretty mad for awhile but I totally got over it once I saw the new stylin' clothes that she bought me!

My sister got some new styles too.


I got this outfit too and I really enjoyed wearing this hood all day - mommy kept taking it off - it was so irritating. I wanted to wear it ALL day - doesn't she understand me at all????????

Oh ya - my newest trick - pointing!




Thanks for stopping by!!!!!! Check back often to see my latest adventures!!!!!!!!

Love,
Ethan
