Ethan at 11 Months

I can't believe I even typed "Ethan at 11 Months". Where has the time gone?

I'm late in posting this which means I'll be typing Ethan's 1 year post in just a few short weeks. I don't know what happened to this past year. It flew by so quickly and I am not ready for my little man to turn one.

Ethan, this is what you are like at 11 months old:
~I bet you weigh around 17.5 pounds and that you are around 28(ish) inches long.

~You are on your last package of size 2 diapers, soon you will be wearing size 3.

~You only wear size 9 months in clothing now, and I can tell you will need size 12 months soon.

~You continue to do really well with solid foods and you are beginning to want more and more table food. This month you began wanting to feed yourself more. You began taking the spoon from me and crying when I try to feed you. Now I cut up most of your food and let you feed yourself with finger foods. Your favorites are cheddar and swiss cheese, bananas, crackers, cheerios, and any type of soft bread.

~You still take a bottle first thing in the morning, right before bed, and between meals. About 4-5 bottles a day. After this month we will wean you off of formula.

~You have really become a great sleeper for the most part. Most nights you sleep in your crib 10-12 hours! Sometimes you'll still wake up once for a bottle in the middle of the night, but that is happening less often too.

~You still take one long nap. You typically nap 2.5-3 hours. You like your sleep! When you are a tired baby, it really changes your mood.

~We're STILL waiting to see your first teeth. Thankfully, your drooling has slowed some, but you continue to bite down and chew on anything you can. Mommy is trying not to worry about this. Those teeth have to come sometime soon, right? ;-)

~You have become quite the happy baby. You love to smile, laugh and giggle. Every once in a while I'll see your old serious, pensive face, but you are not nearly as serious as you once were. In fact, sometimes you even make us laugh with your funny faces. I think you enjoy making us laugh.

~You have become quite social. People often stop me in the stores now to comment on how happy and cute you are. You love to shop with me and smile at others.

~You are so curious about your world now. You love to reach, grab and play with anything. You are happy to roam on the floor and play.

~You are crawling very well now and you get around quickly! This month you began cruising (walking while holding onto furniture and other objects). You love to walk around the coffee table in the living room. You LOVE being mobile so much that you never stop moving unless you are ready to sleep. I guess you want to keep up with your sister. :)

~Speaking of your sister, you two are developing a great relationship. She continues to make you laugh in a way that nobody else can. You're always watching her with a big smile on your face. The two of you are always making each other smile and laugh.

~Your love for baths continues to grow, it's the only thing that can make you go from completely angry and grumpy, to happy and giggling. You love to splash and play with the bath toys.

~Most days you are too busy to sit and cuddle, but you're still much more cuddly than Ellie was. I love when you do allow me to cuddle with you. You have started giving hugs now and they are the BEST hugs!

~Nicknames: Mister, Little Man, Sweet Boy, Handsome, Little Buddy and sometimes EJ. We all call you little buddy most often. Even your sister has started refering to you as "buddy".

We love you Ethan and we are so proud to call you "ours". :) I am sad that you are growing up so quickly, yet I am excited to see who you will become. I know that God has plans for you.

Holy cow I can't believe he's going to be 1 this month either. Weren't we just at the hospital meeting him for the first time?
Love those pictures of the two of you!

Ahh! I can't believe he is almost one!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
