Ewan at 6 months old

Two weeks ago almost now Ewan turned 6 months old! Already a half year of babyhood is gone. The time is going by faster and faster now as the days just keep flying by. His major new accomplishment this month is definitely crawling! He also now has two teeth with more coming any day now. Those have been major sleep disruptors as he tries to wake up and crawl away. He chases me around the house now when he wants me which is cute but sad when I can’t immediately get to him (cleaning up someone elses bodily fluids for instance). He’s also pulling himself up on a lot of things, can stand for a few seconds before falling over and has just started to cruise barely. He definitely has learned where he is not allowed to go and makes a bee-line right for them if they aren’t blocked or gated.

He loves to be out and about doing things throughout the day. He wants to be carried, not in the car or in the stroller, just like the other two! Ewan loves to go out and see other people and watch other kids. He watches Josie and Celia intently and loves it when they play with him. Peekaboo is a favorite right now, he also loves clapping and for us to sing to him, especially hand movement songs. He’s friendly with strangers while he’s in my arms, but doesn’t particularly want to be handed over to anyone. He’ll reach out but then immediately reach back for me if he gets handed over.

Some of the most fun is getting him to do some great giggles. He’ll laugh very easily with some tickles and silly voices. He likes to give the cats pets and George will put up with some rough baby snuggles.

We try to read, but he just wants to eat the books with his sore teeth. He hears a lot of stories while I nurse him and read to the girls. He likes the library, touching all the toys and watching the other kids. He also finds gymnastics fairly entertaining watching all the amazing gymnasts flip all over the floor.
