Another Ethan first: He crawled on hands and feet (no knees).

Today Ethan discovered a much faster—and more entertaining—mode of transportation.

Another Ethan first: He stood up to greet us.

This morning when we went to get Ethan from the crib, we found him standing at the edge waiting for us. It turned out to be just the beginning. This afternoon, he was playing in the living room and discovered how to pull himself up on the lower shelf of an end table. Then this evening, he wanted to see better what was on his activity center, so up he stood to get a good look.

Another Ethan first: He made Julius meow.

A few days ago, Ethan got a good enough grip on Julius that we heard his first complaint on the matter. There is no photo of the actual event, but this shot, which came afterward, conveys the idea.

Another Ethan first: He grabbed my glasses.

He probably would have taken them off my head if I’d let him. He put a quality thumb smudge on the left lens. Ethan has been getting hold of Mommy’s accessories for a while; today, it was finally Daddy’s turn.
