Ethan's second Halloween has came and went successfully. He loved putting on his constume on and even brought it to me to put on him way before Halloween. He loves posing for pictures and he had Johnny laughing so hard when we told him to stand by the wall to get his picture taken and he runs and stands against the wall and poses. Grandma taught him that! She takes multiple pictures a day and he is an expert now. We went down a few streets trick or treating and he caught on quickly. He loved seeing all the other kids dressed up and was "talking" to them as he walked by. He is becoming such a little man and those baby years and slipping away so quickly. I am happy/sad to see the toddler years arrive although he will always be my baby. What a joy to be a mom. To have that incredible experience of responsibility and to nurture and raise your child. It's awesome. I look forward to him growing up and seeing every stage that he goes through. He is amazing to me and I am so glad that he chose me to be his mama!

Lots of changes for little Ethan. He started walking at the end of May and it took him a couple weeks to master it but he is running now. Crawling is a thing of the past! He is everywhere and into everything! But I guess it has helped me lose even more of any baby weight I was carrying because I keep steadily losing more weight. So I can't complain ;) He is just too smart sometimes. Some of the things he does just amazes me. I have to just basically hold his clothes and he puts him arms in the holes of his shirt on his own and steps into his shorts or pants. Too smart! I say "arms up" and the shirt comes off easily. So yes, dressing and undressing are too easy! He is saying more and more sounds. Says "dada" and says his "v's" and "b's" and "m's". Not really any words yet but I'm sure the words aren't far away because he is "talking" more and more everyday with sounds. Discovering his voice I guess ;) He loves all kinds of food now. Now that he has more teeth it makes it a lot easier. He has 10 teeth now and I just felt one of his 1st year molars coming through. That explains his fussy week he had. Poor baby. It definitely hurt him when he tried to sleep because no one has gotten much sleep for the past week ;) He loves applesauce, rice, potatoes, chicken, waffles and the usual snacks of anything graham cracker and he loves cinnamon. We discovered that he has a milk allergy although I dont think it's a real bad one unless he has a large amount of a milk product. If he gets anything with liquid milk, he gets a rash around his mouth and starts sneezing a lot. So no more of that. His doctor thinks that he will outgrow it by the age of 2 or 3. So hopefully by the time he is 2! But for now he still gets ice cream but Soy ice cream instead. So I have found out where they sell all of the soy products that he can enjoy. We love him so very much and are amazed by him everyday. He smile lights up my day! I will try to keep updated on this blog more often. I have been real bad at updating lately!!

I can't believe that our little boy is seventeen months old already. He has brought us so much joy and loads of happiness. I would like to say that he walks all over now. He's trying to talk now and he is pretty good with letting us know what he wants. We love Ethan very much and we are very grateful to have him in our lives. I love seeing his smile each day and hearing the laughter that feels our home. We have been blessed!
- I am a stay at home mom working only a few hours a week which I love. I love to be home with Ethan and take care of him. He is our little miracle! Evan and I have been married going on 8 years and are living in Iowa for now. We are thankful for everything we enjoy especially our newest member of our family who just turned 1!
