|As Tricia's mom would say, infants are great because you can put them down
and come back in an hour and find them right where you left 'em. Not so
with Ethan anymore. If he's awake, he's moving. Has a real knack for
locating the most dangerous thing he can reach, and heading straight for it.
Here he's managed to lift himself up to look inside his toy box. It's
translucent, so he saw some of his toys inside. He grabbed the edge with
both hands and wiggled his way up to a standing position, then reached down
inside for the toy he wanted. Of course, I had to keep the box from
tipping over on him. If you look closely at the bottom left corner of the
first one, you can see a blur as I quickly pull my hand out of camera
range. Looks like a dark spot on the rug.
Ethan finding something dangerous - the power cord to our lamp. If you
could hear what happened when I took the picture it went something like this:
is terribly fascinated by cords and dark corners. Here he's crawled under
the desk in search of danger and mystery. When I called his name, he
turned around and headed for the flashing green light on the camera.
his parents, we feel we have a moral obligation to collect embarrassing pictures we can
show his first girlfriend. Here's one now. This is how Ethan learned
to roll over, making a peak and then tipping in the direction he wants to
go. Doesn't need this anymore... he just rolls when he wants to.
