Ethan Visits the Shedd Aquarium!

4 Feb

Today, Ethan, Ben and I visited the Shedd Aquarium! We started the day at Frances’ Deli and then headed to the Shedd. We had a great day. Ethan loved looking at the sharks, jellyfish and penguins. He was a little afraid of the beluga whales!

I’ve included a collage below! We have had such a fun Saturday!

One

17 Jan

One couple, with one love,
Brought into one crazy world,
One perfect child, one year ago.
With one beautiful, curious face,
One ever beating heart,
And one overwhelmingly sweet kiss,
He stole our hearts,
In one second.
With one toothless smile,
One set of sparkling green-ish, brown-ish, and blue-ish eyes,
And one contagious giggle,
One can never get enough (can we wake him up now?).
With one, independent hand
And the other one in ours,
He slowly learns about our big world,
One curiosity at a time.
Witnessing every development,
One after another, makes for one blessed family.
He is one beautiful child.

Our light, our love and our life turned ONE today and it has been ONE glorious day!

Making a Masterpiece

12 Dec

We discovered on Thanksgiving that Ethan LOVES finger painting. This time around, we were a bit more prepared and contained him to his high chair! We have a few additional gifts to make, but here are some photo highlights.

At the end, we headed straight to the bath for some major clean up! Ethan can’t wait to give his gifts on Christmas!
