So, after having many conversations with Ethan about how to play with toys and pick them up afterwards, Ethan discovered a new and much more effective way to play with zero clean up...

There has been a bit of a box theme lately...

A box on Ethan...

A few firsts and more...

First shaving experience with Dad...

 First happy meal with Dad...

First Mt Dew with Dad...(don't fret, it's not open; but he wishes it was)...

First time driving...also with Dad. (Ethan has a bit of trouble keeping his eyes on the road/seeing above the wheel, and trouble reaching the pedals).

poor Ethan all bundled up in the winter cold

always enjoying bath time!

My favorite sweater!

Ethan is always so kind with Jade; 
with his arm around her he teaches her how to play his new guitar!

Ethan looks so grown up here.
He now has 4 sets of blocks and we play with each set one at a time all day long; building tall towers and then knocking them down is one of our favorite games.
It's always more fun with Dad though!

The Last Month

It's been quite awhile since the last post, and many many pictures have been taken since then.
I will post more in the next few days, that is my goal anyway. But for now, here are a few hi-lights!

He seems to have a good football stance already...and a smile!

"Dad, can I have the camera?"

"Darn flash!"

Ethan really really enjoys playing Steve's guitar and singing.
Ethan actually got his own mini guitar for Christmas...I will post a picture soon!

Early in December, my 2 wonderful sister-in-laws, mother and I had a baking Extravaganza weekend. It was much fun!

My brothers and hubby played cards...

Grandpa played with Ethan....

and later in the evening Steve took me to the Nutcracker while the family watched Ethan!
Always fun going out with my hubby!

One more picture of these handsome guys!

Ethan was a great help with Christmas lights this much fun!

Steve and I were focusing hard on the decorating when we both said, "where's Ethan?"
We looked in his room and he had climbed into this chair and was reading books; all by himself, sweet boy!

Just a sweet face to post!

Ethan's first mohawk!!!

And finally, Steve crafting a guitar case for Ethan's new little guitar...
out of old diaper boxes and duct tape...I am so thankful for a creative husband because that is not my strength!

So much more to come....stay posted!
