Happy Second Birthday, Ethan!

17 Jan

Ethan had a great second birthday! He started the day visiting Aunt Libby for some gifts. Then we went to the doctor. Ethan weighs 27 pounds (38 percentile) and is 33 3/4 inches tall (42 percentile). He enjoyed a no shot appointment! We then met Aunt K to say hi!

Then we took E to school where he brought in clementine oranges to share for a snack. They enjoyed peeling them and eating them. They brought him balloons, made him a banner, and even made cupcakes for him! He really had a lot of fun!

We went for the mini party after his nap. We then came home and had a little pizza and cupcake party for Ethan. He had so much fun with Cousins Lila and Marco, Mimi and Pop Pop, Aunties Tina and Caroline and Uncle Mike!

He had such an amazing day! We are excited to continue the celebration this weekend!!

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!
