Who wants cake?

I know Ethan does. This is Ethan's birthday cake -- my friend Mindy just delivered it. Ethan loves his tractors and Mindy did such a nice job to obliged my request. Thanks Mindy -- Ethan just went nuts when he saw this -- now if only I can keep him away until after dinner tonight.

Happy Birthday Ethan

I can't believe that my child is 4 years old today. WOW -- time really gets away from you. Here is his life in review. This picture is just minutes after he was born weighing just 7lbs. 8 oz. At 1 year - drooling and still crawling.
And now 2 years old - he is running, jumping, and being a crazy boy.
Wow - this is the biggest change -- 3 years old.
Now here he is. The birthday boy - 30 lbs later weighing in at 37lbs.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ETHAN. I love you so much.

The Ethan Plant

My sister gave me this little plant the day Ethan was born. For those of you that know me -- I have - well I guess - a black thumb. Everything I plant dies but.... I have tried very hard to take care of the Ethan plant and much to my surprise it has now lived in my hands for 4 years. When Ethan turned 2 it was very very close to being completely dead but it was a good plant and gave me a second chance to keep it alive. It has made great strides this year as you can see in the picture I took of it last year and now this year. I I keep this plant alive just think how big it will be when Ethan turns 10.

Where were you 4 years ago?

This is where I was 4 years ago today. Starting the long journey of bringing my son into the world. Of course you will not see any pictures of Ethan on this day because he decided to make his arrival on the 24Th. So now 4 years later I am working on planning his 4 year birthday.
