Ethan in Niagara FallsThis still makes me laugh…

So here we are at Niagara Falls. It was just a wonderful visit. The falls are amazing, the weather is nice, and everone there can’t help but be in a great mood delighting in natures beauty.

While we were taking pictures of Ethan two young Asian couples started walking by. When the two girls saw Ethan they went nuts. They didn’t speak much english, but they were oohing and aahing over him. Ethan just loves meeting new people and he started smiling and flirting with them. The girls then asked if they could hold them and have their picture taken.

It just cracked me up that here we are at one of natures most amazing places and these girls just HAD to have their picture taken with Ethan. I wish I could have understood what they were saying to each.

I snuck this picture while the two guys were taking the pictures of the girls with Ethan. I don’t know where they were from, but somewhere in another country are two girls showing their friends and family a picture of Ethan while their boyfriends give each other the ‘uh oh’ look.

6 month checkup

Ethan had his 6 month checkup. He is now 21 lbs and 29 inches. He’s back on the chart for weight (95th percentile), but off the chart for height. The doctor said he looked great and was a wonderfully content baby. Ethan flirted with her like crazy and even blew her a few raspberries.

We had stopped feeding Ethan solid food a couple weeks ago when we realized his trouble sleeping was because of teething, not hunger. He didn’t seem to be enjoying the cereal or the banana’s so we asked her about that. She reassured us that breast milk has everything he needs so don’t worry about the solid foods. We can try him again later and see if he’s ready for it. Right now his only interest is chewing on the spoon.

He got 3 shots, took them very well, and we were on our way. Next visit is in July for his 9 month checkup.
