Bubbles and dog-dogs

In light of the fact that I havn't posted in over a month, I'll give you the quick and dirty edition:

Between Ethan and myself, we went to the doctor 5 times. Nothing terrible. Ethan's ears still have fluid in them, but he can hear fine. I had 8 moles sliced off and 3 frozen. Yummy! Ethan is 34 inches tall and about 26 pounds!

Ethan is a regular chatterbox. Bubbles. Ball. Bottle. All done. dog-dog (which applies to EVERY animal). Juice. Please. Bye-bye. He has about the most adorable voice. Ever. Also. He calls me Mom about half of the time. MOM. not Mama. MOM. He's such a big boy!

I went on a 9 mile hike.

I shot a scary handgun for work. Bah! I don't like guns.

My son has turned into a monkey. He climbs on everything.

Rather than crying when he wakes up from a nap, he just climbs out of bed and wanders the house until he finds me. My baby's growing up! (sniff sniff)

Well. I actually think that's about it. It really seemed like more went on, but according to my calendar that is all.

For the the 4th, we went to a picnic where E got to go in a bounce house. And after that we went to La Purisima Mission in Lompoc, California. Where I head butted a horse. I swear it was an accident. Ethan got really excited to see all the 'dog-dogs' (horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs and donkeys)!

I can't believe it's already July. They tell you that time really flies once you have kids. But you never really know the full scope of what they mean until you have one. Time just needs to slow down. Way down.

Last night Ethan pointed to his electric bubble blower thing and said "buh-booo?" That's really one of his first words that he said on his own, without me prompting him. He'll say "dooce" for juice...and shoes, actually. He's so smart!

Also last night he was going around to all of his toys that play music and dancing with them (even if the music wasn't actually playing). I got some great video of it, which is a miracle, because he usually stops everything if I bring out the camera and then focuses all of his energy on trying to get it out of my hands! It's just too bad I can't figure out how to add video to this thing- if that's even possible...

I had a Pampered Chef party on saturday. Turned out to be kind of a bust. Out of the 40 people that were invited, none of them RSVPd, and only 3 of them showed up. But I did try some delicious recipes- Cheesy artichoke cups and fruit pizza...delish! I signed up to be a consultant back in September just so I could get all the tools for cheap, and I've had a couple of parties. But I think that one will be my last. I didn't really make any money off of it, maybe $ I won't miss anything!
