mommy (& grandma & aunt katie) and me!


Today was Ethan's first "Little Bundles" class at our local My Gym! Luckily the staff at My Gym is used to lunatics and didn't flinch as we strolled in -- three people for one Little Bundle -- with camera in tow. Hey, he's the first baby in the family in years, what do you expect?!

There wasn't much of a turnout of babies in his age group (under six months) but we still managed to have a lot of fun! Ethan enjoyed some back and tummy time on his special blanket while we listened to music, clapped our hands and sang along to cutesy renditions of Sheryl Crow and Avril Lavigne songs. While Aunt Katie (one of my best friends since I was only a couple of years older than Ethan is) and I admittedly had way too much fun in the ball pit than two adults should admit to having, Ethan had preferred the swing...which is ironic considering he decided he flat-out will not tolerate his swing at home.

All of that swinging and playtime must have really worn Ethan out because he passed out in the swing and didn't wake up until we got home from lunch at a local deli that we stopped at on the way home.


While the My Gym employees were apologetic over the lack of spirit from the other "Little Bundles," I had a lot of fun and it's safe to say that Ethan did as well -- as he way, way too easily agreed to take three full naps today! I've almost forgotten what a struggle it has been to get him to even agree to one nap in the afternoons.
