3 months on...

Sorry for the late post on this but on Tuesday Ethan passed the three month milestone! Wow where has the time gone!!!! What a three months it has been. Ethan is an adorable, delightful little boy and we really could not imagine life without him now. He is starting to play with all his toys, he giggles with us (and at us), smiles and 'talks' to us all the time. He always looks so serious in his photos though but he really is not like that.However, with all the good there is a few tough the last couple of weeks Ethan has changed his sleeping patterns again, well changed is not the right word really, he has regressed somewhat and is now waking 2 - 3 times a night and being a bit harder to settle. It may be a growth spurt (not that he needs it at all) so if so, it should settle down in a couple of days (I hope because I am one tired mumma right now with no day or night sleeping). The great thing is no matter how little sleep Ethan has he is still very cheerful, and still very rarely cries. The only time he cries is when he is really hungry and I am unable to feed him... i.e. on the way home from the supermarket!

Ethan and I went to the Pregnancy, Baby and Toddler expo recently and apart from it being like bumper cars with baby prams we picked up a few essentials for summer... including his sunnies! See below, he is one cool dude!
All Ethan wants to do these days is sit up... check him out!
As he is not able to hold himself up in the sitting position yet I find I am spending HOURS helping him sit up because its his preferred position right now... so because I need some of that time we have bought him a Bumbo seat... (from the website):

"The Bumbo Baby Seat is an original, award winning baby seat. Its unique design allows your baby to sit unassisted, supported safely and comfortably. It enables your child to confidently observe its surroundings, whilst also acting as an ‘extra set of hands' for parents. Designed for infants from three months to one year, the Bumbo seat is uniquely designed according to the baby's posture."

We pick it up tomorrow, so I will post some pictures soon for you to get an idea of how it works!
