so for the last few meals ethan has been unhappy. really unhappy. we thought it might be his teeth....he just got his second bottom tooth. we thought it was just because he didn't feel well. maybe it was because i was gone at work and he was just not happy about it. but today we figured out the mystery. it was none of the above.
see he's my baby. he's my littlest one. i think of him like that. he loves to be cuddled and close and he is always content. he doesn't seem to be in a rush to grow up. it will come. we are both content. i mean look at his sweet face peeking out from his carrier....
but the picture below is how my little man sees himself. independent, growing, and learning something new everyday. and so today we learned that ethan is DONE with baby food. as in will NOT eat it. so we put on his tray what we could from our plates and his little face lit up. he was beaming and so proud of himself. and he ate and ate and ate. and when we tried to sneek in a little baby cereal or baby food he would purse his little lips turn his head. so my baby is growing up. whether i'm ready or not.
but thankfully he's still content to snuggle and be close. he likes to let me carry him and adore his littleness even as he works to move away from it. baby feet and snuggled in.
