I'm amazed at the boy he has become and am excited to see the boy and man he will become in future years. He is an amazing kid that seems to baffle me constantly with his wit, humor and intelligence. I can definitely say that Ethan is his own child. He is spirited, challenging, loving, and so much more.
Over the weekend, we had a party for him at Incredible Pizza. We were going to have his party at the park, but the weather decided to be fickle. So then we were going to do it at my house, but none of the kids from big school were able to come. One friend was out of town, and the other got sick the day before the party. So it was just one other child his age and a bunch of grown-ups and babies.
Hence to move to the pizza place. Incredible Pizza is like a Chucky Cheese or Show Biz, only they have a buffet and go-carts.
Last minute, my mom was able to bring Ethan's cousin Jacob with them, so he had two boys his age to play with, which was perfect. I think over all, he had a fantastic birthday. And his grandma was able to make a Finn McMissile cake, just like he wanted.
Life with Ethan has never been boring.
From his first breath
He was exhausting from the day he was born
But so cuddly that I couldn't help but love him
From his ability to keep a smile on his face even with an ear infection
to his determination at 6 months
and his gorgeous blue eyes at a year
And his curiosity at a 1 1/2
His joy at 2
And the way he charges at everything zealously
His scientific desires at 2 1/2
His unbridled joy at 3
To his willingness to run when he didn't want to at 3 1/2
and his adaptability when another joined our family
And to the pride shining through his eyes as he takes on the role of "Big Brother"
To his bright eyes, his inquisitive spirit and his joy at being a kid
Ethan is forever amazing me
