17 Months gone by...

The last 17 months have been very wonderful!
Very few days go by where we are not so abundantly grateful for Ethan.
Although it's been 17 months, it still feels like a short time ago that we brought him home from the hospital.
We are enjoying getting to know him more and more, and delight in loving him!
 
He is our son, and with him we are well pleased!
We are thankful for...
 
A little bit of sun...

A whole lot of smiles....

Always time for sand...
 
 A few more sticks...


A time to sit...

A little bit of silly...
 
A whole lot of sweet!
 
Psalm 118:1
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."
 
And a good reminder:
Zechariah 4:10 NLT
"Do not despise these small beginnings..."

A little more fall please!

I have been working on this post for about 3 weeks now and can never quite finish it!
It is still not finished yet, but here are the pictures I have so far, and I will add more, hopefully very very soon! There are so many to add!
 
Ethan enjoying the outdoor fall weather!


Learning to work together on things as a family.

Just a little fun!
 
Pretending to eat the pumpkin stems...it's a fun game around here. 


Ethan in a diaper never get's old...right now anyway!
 
Cute, sweet boy! So much laughter!
 

Ethan at Center Grove Orchard pumpkin and apple farm.
He is very curious about the animals.
It was such a fun afternoon as a family!
 
 
Sitting on a 130lb pumpkin!
 
Throwing hay was one of his favorite things to do. 
 
 
I taught him how to feed this goat!
 
"Look Mom."
 
And he fed the goat by himself! 
 
Entering a "3 little pigs" house!
 
 
stay tuned...more to come!
 
2 Timothy 3 NLT
(our prayer for Ethan and our family)
"10 But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance....
14 But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. 15 You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus."
