My growing boy
9 lb 5 oz newborn - 4 years ago
(I wanted my second baby to be another big boy, and my wish came true! :-)
3 months old
Months later. . .still a chubby baby! Love those cheeks
1 year old portrait
(The bear was a gift from his great grandmother. I try to bring my own "special" props for photos. If this bear gets lost, we will always remember it.)

1 1/2 year old goofy boy watching a DVD.

Ethan has always liked construction hats, and he loved wearing these play goggles that were so big for his little face. I love the intense look.

2 1/2 year old portrait (Notice the pitiful allergy eyes.)

Wow! It is hard to believe that my little (Well, he wasn't very little! :-) baby is now four years old! Thought you might enjoy some younger pictures of him.

Ethan has definitely been my "grace tester," but I cannot imagine life without him. He is very sweet and friendly in the morning and is always telling me how much he "wuvs" me. His personality is outgoing and friendly, and he consistently smiles and says, "hello" to people in public. He laughs easily and loves to be tickled. He will pick every dandelion, weed and flower in sight and present it to me accompanied with a smile. If I get hurt, he is always ready with a kiss and, "I am sorry, Mommy." Almost every time he receives something, I am grabbed in a huge hug, and he yells, "Thanks, Mom!!!!" Ethan loves to work and is very willing to do any job I give him. He has no fear, and I am sure he will break a few bones in his life. He is always climbing, jumping, sliding, rolling. . . He loves to have books read to him and thrives on playing "construction" - especially in the dirt. He has an incredible sense of timing, and will tap or "direct" any song right in rhythm. Best of all, he is my little man, and I know he loves me. He probably is the reason I am popping a few gray hairs, but I wouldn't trade him.

I love you, Ethan!

Happy Birthday Ethan!!!! We love and miss you!
I know how hard it is to believe that your baby is 4! I feel the same way.

I think my favorite Ethan phrase was "it be to pun". (it be so fun!)and we can never forget "I play Bichael toys". The kids still get a kick out of his funny sayings. Tell him we said Happy Birthday. Oh, and we loved the cake too. Not too shabby for a "Mommy" job! :) Look out, Marianne! haha My question is, how much frosting was devoured by the decorator? Celery anyone? :)
