Happy 2nd Birthday Ethan!

Ethan had a really nice 2nd birthday yesterday.  He woke up bright and early and in a great mood.  Daddy made him apple pancakes and sent a bunch of cupcakes to daycare for his friends and teachers.  While Ethan was at daycare they went to Chapel and everyone sang Happy Birthday to him.  He was smiling and looking around the room the entire time.  Then when it was snack time Ethan's teach Ms. Karen sang Happy Birthday to him again.  Then they ate the yummy cupcakes together. 

At home I made homemade chicken nuggets and french fries for dinner.  These are some of Ethan's favorites... however... last night he seemed to enjoy the ketchup the most. 

Grandma Sandy stopped over with some birthday gifts for Ethan.  Grandma Linda, Grandma Kathy, and Grandpa Karl all called last night to wish Ethan a happy birthday.  He loved to get on the phone and say "HI", "TWO", "BYE-BYE".  :-)

After dinner we had cupcakes and ice cream! YUMM!! Then we went down stairs and gave Ethan his present.  We got him a small ATV and we thought he would love it because he can't get enough of our big ones.  Well... turns out he is a bit scared of it and would rather look at it from across the room.  Oh well... he will adjust and love it soon. 

Saturday afternoon we are having friends and family over to help celebrate Ethan's birthday.  I am sure he will have tons of fun.  I will definitely post another update after his party.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!! We love you very much! xoxo :-)

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

Our life together has just begun,
You're part of me my little one.

As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

I'd daydream of the things we'd share,
Like late-night feedings and teddy bears.

Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC's.
I thought of things you'd want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.
I thought of lessons I'd need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.

When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.

I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.

Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.

I count your little fingers and toes,
I memorize you eyes and nose.

I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper "I Love You" every night.

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.

As mother and child our journey's begun,
My heart's yours forever little one.
