His little eyes are filled with curiosity as he scoots across the floor.
What is on top of that table?
What is under that desk?
Why is that dog asleep?
What happens when I pull that cat’s tail?
I know he isn’t capable of making those mental observations, but sometimes it seems like his mind is filled with questions that must be answered right now.
Remember when I told you Ezra had just started army crawling and seemed to have no motivation to start full-on crawling? You know how they say kids will make liar out of you every chance they get?
Our little tootie bug started crawling the very next day! And I don’t think he’s slowed down since! Life is certainly quite a bit busier now that Ezra is on the move. He loves being able to explore our home, especially the kitchen and his room.
When he comes looking for us we hear him before we ever see him because he makes the sweetest little grunting noise through his nose as he crawls. Hearing him move about our house and watching him learn so much about his little world brings indescribable joy to our hearts. I am so, so thankful I get to be his mama.
February has been unseasonably warm and remarkably sunny. We’ve enjoyed being able to spend some afternoons outside soaking up the sun. Ezra loves watching the cars drive by, and all the attention he gets from the dogs.
This week Ezra started pulling himself up onto his feet. His favorite place to do it is in his crib, but he’s figuring out how to hold on to furniture and pull up too. He’s not that fond of it yet, and he gets scared when his legs start to wobble. But he’s just about to start cruising the furniture. We’ll have a walker on our hands before we know it.
We’re still enjoying eating a Paleo diet. We’re finishing up week six and so far have no plans to give it up. Ezra is eating a Paleo diet as well, and that little guy has a big appetite. Right now his favorite foods are chicken + apple sausage, avocado, pear, and sweet potato.
I’ve been studying First Peter, and these couple of verses seem so timely to be praying for the persecuted church:
You rejoice in this, though now for a short time you have had to struggle in various trials so that the genuineness of your faith—more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. I Peter 1:6-7
Life lately has been busy, but the very best kind of busy.

We use a lot of Honest Company products in our house: Laundry detergent and dryer sheets, dish soap, dishwashing detergent, and hand soap. We also use their disposable diapers when we’re on the road. Their shampoo and conditioner isn’t our favorite, but we’ve been super happy with all of their products.
