Catching Up

morning routine.....breakfast with disney playhouse
poor kid inherited his mommy's squinty smile
now it's time to lose the tray, get real comfy in the highchair and settle in for some Mickey Mouse or Special Agent Oso (the unique stuffed bear)
asleep after big day of playing with mommy and he maintained the death grip on his 1st chik-fil-a balloon
pretending to be in a cage in the awesome tiger cage Meredith made for Thomas' birthday party. She made the neatest carnival for the kiddos!
hanging by the bounce house with his juice...he liked to be on it or by it, NOT in it bouncing
snacks with the birthday boy and other kids.....he's looking at me like "what am i supposed to do with this thing"...still doesn't eat cupcakes
1st time in his swim floatie...he was crouching b/c I was
snack time after pool time on Saturday
hanging out in his favorite spot...the stairs
ready to 1..2..3...jump.....AGAIN
trying to "swim" towards daddy
look at those beautiful baby blues!
After I pulled out the box of party supplies to put stuff away, Ethan thought that shelf looked perfect sized for him to climb in. Brandon just barely caught a pic before he was ready to get out!

Sorry for the long post....more coming when I get pics off of my iphone. Ethan is out of school til June I'm working from home and will hopefully keep us busy with work and lots of activities! We also have our home for it's kinda crazy around here!

Ethan at 21 months

It's been a while since we've blogged....honestly, it's because we have taken no photos. Ethan turned 21 months on Saturday and then we had a great Mother's Day on Sunday. Brandon and Ethan cooked a delicious breakfast, then church and lunch with my mom and dad...then I got sick so I had to send the boys to Plumerville without me :( They had a great time celebrating with Grammy and Brandon's grandmothers. Ethan got a haircut on Saturday and now he really looks like a little boy....gone is his little baby face, but at least he's so handsome he can pull it off. (hence the tshirt that says "dump him, i'm hotter")

At 21 months:

-trying new words all the time, his favorite is "car" and his favorite activity is to wave at them, whether parked or moving

-loves to give hugs, his signature move is the patting hands when he makes us laugh EVERY time

-He's 3 feet tall and 33 lbs. He's such a big boy and strong as an ox, so we know he'll continue to be a handful

-loves to play with his friends at school, preferably outside where he is happiest

It's hard to believe it's time to start thinking about his 2nd birthday already! He's growing too fast, but we are enjoying every minute. He is such a sweet boy and such a flirt, so we can't wait to watch as his personality continues to grow.
