Well my little guy is not so little any more. I think he has grown so very much in the last week. He is so much longer and I know he has really put on some pounds. The one thing that is so amazing is how alert and strong he is. I can't leave him on the bed at all he will roll off and he grabs everything he is near. I had some random pictures to post so I could show how big he is getting!!
Ethaniel tried his Bumbo chair so I got some pictures and video of him. I thought he looked so funny. He is to young for really using it...but in a few weeks he will be able to hold his head up well enough to get some good use out of his funny Bumbo chair.

Okay I have no idea why but all my videos are either unable to load with the blog or only load with myspace but then the talking is all in chipmunk voices. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? I really want to fix it because I need to be able to post my videos so hubby can be able to see while he is stuck in Africa.

Well tomorrow my new little guy will be a month old. I have mixed emotions about how fast time is going by. On one hand I want him to be small and little forever. On the other hand I want time to fly by so we can hopefully be a family all together. We are still waiting on Andy to hear word on when and where we can all be together. Ethaniel is a very good baby and easy going most of the time...however he is colic from around 1:30a/m to 3:30a.m every night. It is really starting to take its toll on me. I have been trying to limit my diet in case I was eating anything that might be upsetting his tummy. I have been so unhappy with doing this...it is just a huge stress on top of a already huge pile of stress. Last night I had my mind made up to stop nursing. However today I read some articles pointing out that it is most likely not due to my breast milk that he is so fussy. I then also realized that he is crying the same time frame each night. I think he is just a normal baby who gets fussy at his fussy time. So I have decided to eat what I want and still nurse. He is going to scream and fuss no matter what anyway. I should be able to enjoy all the wonderful American food. Ethaniel has already grown up so much in just 1 month. He is so about to roll over and has major body strength. He is starting to play with his toys by reaching out for them and grabbing at them. It is really cute to see him get all excited. He is already able to wear most 3-6 month clothes. He is wanting to always nurse on me. If I hold him he expects to eat...so Eliana has really been a great help by holding him. Elias is great at getting things for the baby and talking to him. I love that the other kids are older and so able to help out. Without Andy around I really count on their help.
