Now I am supposed to Tag 7 people but I do not know 7 people in the blogging world that have not done this so.....I am tagging:
Last weekend we had our friend Addi come over and take some pictures for Ethan's ninth month, and I also wanted a few in his costume. Addi did a fantastic job and they are awesome pictures of Ethan. He kept wanting to have his binky or his hands in his mouth which can make for a hard time to take some pictures. These are just a few of the several great shots she took. My favorites are the basket and the one where his hand is on the pumpkin. I can not wait to get some printed and in a frame!! Thanks Addi for these memories!!
Last Monday Ethan decided that he would finally crawl. He takes these fast little crawls, which are so cute. He has not discovered anything out of the living room yet! Soon he will be at my feet wherever I go! I think for now he just likes being able to get to the toys he wants.
In case any of you get any mysterious phone calls from the Barnes family it just might be our son! He loves the phone; pushing buttons, eating the phone and hanging up on people while on speaker phone. Peggy can verify these mysterious calls due to the fact that she was the first on Ethan's list to call! One day last week I noticed he had gotten into the phonebook and had Peggy's Cell but I did not think he called. Well Peggy called back noticing she had a missed call from us, which only verified that he DID call!! Sorry Peg!! So a lesson learned-the phone can not be used as a toy!!!
Ethan was having a ball playing with the box of his new booster seat. He was so serious acting like he was reading all about the booster. He was actually staying still long enough to take a few quick and cute pics.
Notice the top right up on all fours. He can now move the legs but forgets his arms and falls on his face:( Corey guesses this week we will have a crawler-only time will tell.
Today Ethan and I went to Great Grandma and Grandpa Smiths for lunch. Grandma called yesterday to invite us over so we could see the latest addition to the Smith family. Currently there are 10 great grandchildren ( 8 boys and 2 girls) and we have another boy due in January. Its a little different than how I grew up- there were 11 grandchildren (9 girls and 2 boys).
Now all these pictures are of Daniel and one with Ethan but he was the only one that would let me take pictures. He is pretty cute and loves for me to take his picture. Patrick and Kiersten were there but were too busy playing to snap a family photo. Aaron the latest addition was a sleepy head the whole time so sorry no pictures of him, I did not want to wake him. Its amazing too see the family grow and that we are able to see each other every once in awhile. Grandma made some amazing broccoli soup (which I actually liked) and some BBQ sandwiches. We had a great time visiting and will try to get back sooner to visit.
