My Big Boy!

The day we brought Ethan home from the hospital.

Ethan turned 6-years old yesterday. I can't believe SIX years have passed since I had my first precious little son. He is such a joy to me. He is my child that stops to look at everything. He loves nature and examines all of the ladybugs, worms, salamanders. He likes to dig holes to China, and play tag with Mommy. He whines about taking walks with me, but then he'll chase me around the yard for hours. He loves root beer floats (thanks to me), and he'll eat almost any fruit and vegetable. He loves search-and-find books. He likes his hair spiked. :-)

His favorite ...
animal is a crocodile
color is red
book is Dinosaur Dinners

I love you, Ethan.

(Here he's trying on Izzy's birthday hat, playing with his new Hot Wheels track, and posing with Izzybee)

Thanks. Ethan wasn't even walking yet when you first met him. And I remember Diego coming in the mornings, with his hair washed and combed down and a graham cracker in his hand! Doesn't feel like it was so long ago....

You look so young, but the unfair thing is, is that you still look young!! Even after 4 kids! Hope you are feeling better. Take care! You are such a good mommy!

What a wonderful, caring post. Best birthday wishes all around! What a cutie pie! Then AND now!

Thanks, Lori. It's a mixed blessing, though. People are contantly asking if "all those kids" are mine. I probably look like the babysitter.

I know I'll appreciate it more when I'm 40.
