In our hunt for things to entertain Ethan today, we found an unopened toy from one of our baby showers. Our lucky day! It served for good entertainment for Ethan, and possibly even more for us! We loved watching him chase that tractor around. Even more entertaining is watching him get distracted by the doorstop, which is apparently more exciting than any toy. Enjoy! :)
The next best thing to playing outside:
(oh, and in case you were wondering, sick boy=Mommy doesn't have to take a shower or put on real clothes all day)

We are praying for a VERY quick recovery. The last 24 hours have been very trying, to say the least. We are completely exhausted, both physically and emotionally. It's so hard seeing him so miserable. He's been a diffferent child the last two days. We're hoping for our sweet, loving, smiley baby boy back soon!
(Thanks Jenny and Rachel for all your advice)

It's been a long day! Lonnie had to work, so luckily I was feeling better and could take care of Ethan (but that didn't keep me from calling Lonnie about 20 times asking when he was coming home!). He's been really cranky this evening, and we actually just put him down at 6:00.
Lonnie enjoyed some extra cuddly time with his little man yesterday after picking him up.

And yea! Ethan finally let me get a picture of his two teeth. Lovely picture, I know, but hey, you can see his teeth!

Four out of five babies looking at the camera isn't too bad!
Awwww...Peyton and Ethan bonding...

- Crawling around like crazy
- Pulling up on everything
- Getting into everything - doorstops, cords, etc.
- Spitting while eating - VERY frustrating for Mom and Dad!!!
- Learning the word 'no' (due to the afore mentioned items)
- Reading - he loves touch and feel books and books with sound
- Talking - he's started saying dada, along with the /g/ and /n/ sounds, and saying 'brmmm, brmmmm,' all day long!
- Growing teeth - 2 within one week!
- Watching Mom and Dad cook - he loves sitting in his Bumbo seat on the counter and watching us (I know that's not safe, but I promise we watch him closely)
I hope to get his pictures and measurements tomorrow. We tried tonight, but he will NOT lay down long enough to be measured and have his picture taken.
Trying to get a picture of it is VERY hard, though, but I'll post one when I get one!

Oh, and how could I forget? ETHAN GOT HIS FIRST TOOTH!!!! (That's right, nine months old and finally getting his first tooth.) We noticed it on Sunday. I've been dreading the whole teething thing because I've heard so many horror stories of endless screaming, but Ethan handled it like a man! Looking back, I guess he was a little bit more fussy than usual, but not bad at all. We've tried getting a picture, but you know how hard that is. I'll post one once I get one! :)

(this post is really just for me so I'll remember all that)
But I know it's not nice to post without a picture, so I'll leave you with a picture from the Bender's Halloween party. We tried to get as many of the babies together as possible, and this is the BEST picture we got:
