Double Ear Infection

Posted in Adorable Ethan, Adorable Life | Comments Off on Double Ear Infection

Poor boy!  Ethan has ANOTHER double ear infection.  He’s been on antibiotics since Friday so he’s feeling a lot better today.  Nonetheless, it’s still hard to see him in pain.

img_0844This weekend has been anticlimactic.  We found an amazing deal on ceramic pots for the front of the house (see photo).

It’s suppose to rain today so I’m affraid we don’t have any great outdoor plans.  However today kicks off MY BIRTHDAY WEEK.  Yes, I am 29 once again!  We’re planning a trip to John’s Incredible Pizza later this week with the kids.  It’s funny how things change.  Jennifer asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday and the first thing that came to mind was some place fun for the kids. :)

A Great Purchase

I’ve been known from time to time to crave “techie gadgets”.  I don’t remember what Jennifer said to me the day I told her I wanted to buy a digital SLR and it probably doesn’t matter but she said something funny to me on the way home from our Saturday adventure today.  She said, “If I ever gave you a hard time about wanting a digital SLR, I’m sorry, this was a great purchase”.

So I dedicate these photos to my wife.  With just 13 days left until my birthday, can I have a pressure washer? :)

Nothing like enjoying a good meal.  Ethan has been in rare form lately.  He says (as clear as day) “Hi Da Da”.  I sometimes mistake him for Emily.

Kite Flying and Slow Dancing

Posted in Adorable Emily, Adorable Ethan | 4 Comments »

This week marks a number of “first”.  Earlier in the week, I shared my first slow dance with Emily.  I was playing a song by Brandon Heath (now featured on the main page of our site) and Emily looked up at me.  I asked if she wanted to dance and the rest was history.  It will forever be a memory that is burned in my brain.

Emily's first time flying a kite!

Today marked another first.  We had a family picnic and thanks to Aunt Michelle, we flew kites for the first time!!!  Emily loved it.  She kept saying “look daddy, I’m doing it”.  I would respond with, “excellent job pumpkin, you’re awesome”.  The rest of the day she couldn’t stop telling me how “awesome” I was.

Ethan has been talking like crazy since Grandma and Grandpa were in town.  He now says (clearly) Yellow, Purple, Ball, Baby, Door, Dora, Bubbles, Thank You, Emmy, Airplane, NO and the list goes on and on.  It’s adorable!
