6 months and...

My baby turned 6 months on April 28th and he decided that he was tired of just laying around so he started crawling! Jared and I were teaching our primary class when Ethan just took off across the room for a piece of paper that was on the floor. I was so surprised that I stopped in the middle of my lesson and looked at Jared in shock. Ever since then he hasn't stopped moving instead he's standing up! In just a week my baby went for sitting quietly and playing with the toys in front of him to chasing me around the house and standing up where every he had hold onto and creating lots of messes. My life will never be the same!

I took this video after we came home from church. I didn't think he would be able to crawl at home because we have slippery wood floors and the church had carpet...well he proved me wrong.

And don't worry he loves cords. He seems to find them even when I can't.

Once he started crawling he discovered that the entertainment center is just the right height for him. So most days he pulls everything off this shelf and then tries to stand up.
Then he realized that the bars in his bead work great of standing up...this is usually how we find him after naps and in the morning

And today while I was washing his bottles I looked down to see this



My baby is growing so fast :(

WOW! I am impressed! I bet he'll be walking by the time he's one!! Isn't it funny how you kinda think your house is child proof until your baby can get around and then they find things you never thought of! Our house it TOTALLY bare now!
