Ethan is 10 Months

I don't have much of an update for this sweet 10 month old.  He continues to be such a joy and such a happy baby!  Ethan is getting better and better at pulling up to stand and can walk pretty steadily behind his walker toy.  He loves to "dance" by rocking back and forth whenever there is music playing.  He can definitely climb up the stairs now, so we are having to be pretty careful!  He likes to try to sit down on the bottom step and has fallen off once.  He is still nursing 4 times a day and continues to be a great eater!  He definitely prefers to be spoon fed, but I'm trying to give him more and more finger foods.  He loves yogurt and bananas, sweet potatoes, apple sauce, and black beans!  He also started to drink more water from his sippy cup and seems to get pretty excited about that.  He is still napping twice a day, but the morning nap is often cut short by our need to get out and about to run errands!  He is loving the nursery at church and Bible study, and doesn't mind being left at the YMCA too much.  He continues to adore his sister and loves saying dada whenever Daddy gets home from work.  He has also gotten pretty good at waving and it is so cute watching him fold his fingers over when he waves.  He is still fitting into his 12-18 month clothes pretty well!

I almost don't where March went!!  We blinked and it was over!!!  March was filled with warm spring days, followed by cold winter days in an unforgiving cycle that we thought would never end!!!  We had colds and tummy bugs, and longed for consistency in weather!  We did manage to do a few fun things on those nice days though!  One week, right as it warmed up, the kids and I headed down to Charleston to meet Matt while he was working there.  We had so much fun walking around, enjoying ice cream, yummy food, and beautiful scenery!!  Shockingly, the kids did a GREAT job sleeping in the same room together, and two nights, we were all in one room!!  It definitely meant an early bedtime for Matt and I, but we were pleasantly surprised by how well they did.  At the very end of the month, we drove up to Asheville for Molly Ryan's birthday party!  Hannah had a blast being a princess, and loved being with her cousins.  She thinks Molly is the coolest!!!
