Ethan's Birthday!

Ethan Chase is ONE! Above: His blue birthday cake! He danced during the Birthday song. I helped him blow out his candle, while Kayin helped him dig in to the cake! He liked it, but not as much as Kaylin! Below: Sitting in his new Spiderman Chair! He thinks he's king of the world when he sits in it! Always a happy face!
Below: Riding his new 3-wheel bike from Grandma Sharp. He loved just sitting on it. He doesn't want anyone else to! What a cute boy!
Below: Party Time! Kaylin sharing Ethan's new toys. :) Ethan loves tools and would be completely satisfied with a scredriver in his hand at all times. He uses his tools on any other toy, fixing them. He also got a tool bench!
Below: Birthday cake detroyed. Mission completed. Happy Birthday Ethan!!

Growing Kids

Ethan's classic look

Ethan turned one on March 1st! I cannot believe it has been a year since he came into our family! He just went to the doctor and even though I think he is so stocky and filled out, he's only 20 lbs!! (putting him in the 25% tile) He did so well with his shots. He walks around like he owns the world. Chatting away, saying a few words like Up, Uh-Oh, Mama, Dada, no-no and trying to say Light. He is such a fun-loving little boy with a heart of gold.
Kaylin is as hilarious as ever. She tests me constantly, but will always listen in the end. She has a new love for "cinderella the princess" and is learning to be potty trained, although it's been a struggle. I learn patience more than I want to and have found the greatest joy in sleeping. (maybe that's why you sleep so much as a teenager, for once those days are over, you never get that much sleep again until all your kids have left the house!--oh no, that means it's just beginning for me!) I'll send pics of Ethan's birthday bash next!
