Pregnancy's progress

19 weeks

19 weeks bare belly

A big jump to 34 weeks

36 weeks (a lot is happening)

36 weeks bare belly

We are getting very excited to meet this little guy! Ethan was born at 37 weeks exactly and weighed 6 lbs 10 oz. It is fun to recall that time as we are near to 37 weeks with this little one.

2 years old and loving it!

We are so thankful for Ethan's life! He is growing into a fine young boy.
Ethan enjoys playing outside, laughing, tackling daddy, driving, soccer balls, baseballs, his guitar, tackling his hippo, cookies, running down the driveway with his dad, and spinning.
He is doing a great job obeying us, and often says, "Ethan obey!"
I love receiving hugs and kisses from him!!!
He's a sweet sweet boy and he seems to get funnier by the day.
He know his colors fairly well- he's not always 100% though.
He holds a pencil correctly and draws circles when we ask him to. 
He frequently talks about "Die on cross," 'who' we ask, "Jesus" he replies.
'Then what' we ask. "Rose again!" he replies with a smile and excitement! Such a joy!
Ethan often counts to 10, skipping 4 and 5.
He likes to line things up.
For about a week we asked him how old he is and he replied "3," too eager to grow up already!

Ethan is our son in whom we delight and are well pleased!

 Our family began Ethan's 2 year birthday celebration at Uncle Ed's pool (Steve's brother who lives 1 mile from us).

 Pool fun with dad!

Such a great jumper!

And a pretty good swimmer for 2!

Hanging out with Uncle Ed by the pool!

Then came some birthday cupcakes

Ethan calls them "butcakes"
silly boy
he sure liked eating them


 More frosting please?

Then we had ice cream cones! Another favorite of Ethan!

Hanging out with Grandpa Bjurstrom!

Then we opened gifts with daddy!

Ethan spent time with each gift he opened. He's enjoying some new books here.

A handful of days later we celebrated with my side of the family in Center Point.
another cake!

Hanging out with my brother, Uncle Stephen.

And this is Ethan just enjoying being TWO!

Ethan plays guitar every day he is able, and is getting pretty good at strumming and singing along!

 The cutest 2 year old I know!
Always eager to help me bake and "test" the batter!
We love  you Ethan Riley!
