Ethan's first kiss!!

Eric is looking on as a proud father as Ethan locks lips with an older woman, a much older woman. This is Hannah, our friends' little girl, she is 5 and Ethan is in love with her. We can already tell the Ethan has the "Nelson" gene and is going to be a heart-breaker!

My hungry hippo!

Ethan is very quickly catching on to eating real food. In fact, if Eric or I are eating and he isn't, he will sit there and watch us until we give him something to eat. Also, when I am feeding him, he gets so excited and will grab my hand and pull the food to his mouth. I can definitely tell that he is a boy and soon will be eating me out of "house and home."

What a great Dad!

This Eric pretending to be Mr. Bumbohead for Ethan. That purple thing on his head is called a bumbo and is one of the best inventions ever. It is a chair that you can sit your baby in and it helps them to learn to sit up. Ethan absolutely loves it. I have been using it since he was about 2 1/2 months old. His favorite thing is that I will sit him up on the counter while I make dinner and he just loves to watch me (don't worry, I am always next to him, so he won't fall). While I am making dinner, I give him some measuring spoons to play with and then we cook together! Sidenote: A friend is actually letting us borrow their bumbo, we would not have bought Ethan a purple one--for our next child, we will be purchasing one.
