Motherhood has been an absolutely amazing ride. It is now Ethan’s third month and I cannot believe how fast the last three months have gone! I still cannot believe that God chose me to be his mother!
Before, he didn’t care about anything but sleeping, but now even though he has been sleeping through the night since he was about 7 weeks, he has been sleeping less during the day. I wasn’t so sure that I would be able to handle the extra hours of awake time during the day, since I have been working on school work, but I love it!
He has now discovered his hands and likes to chew on them rather than use a pacifier. Also, he has started to grasp toys in his hands and pulls himself up in his seat, like he wants to sit up. Recently, he started to gurgle, especially when he is in a good mood, which is just about always.
He’s been an amazing sleeper since around 7 weeks and sleeps from around 7:30 pm until about 7:00 am or later. It’s amazing to be able to have some free time before I go to bed at night and to be able to sleep through the night. This will come in handy when I have to return to work.
Recently, we’ve discovered that he is an outdoor man. We took him out to the pool at about 6 weeks and the first time he got in, he was not too fond of the idea, much like his first bath. But, a couple of days later, we brought him out to the pool and he loved it! He’s also just as happy sitting outside when it’s warm.
We also got the chance to take him on a long trip and he did an amazing job. But, that’s for a later post!
