Dear little Ethan

How is it possible that you are TEN MONTHS old!? As we sat down to think about you, here was our conversation…

dad — “have you watched him take a bath? he. loves. it. I had to CLEAN THE WALLS and DOOR because he splashes like crazy and has so much fun!”‘

dad — “he flirts at daycare. he just tilts his head on his hands and smiles when the girls come. you gotta see that sometime”

mom — “how is such a little person so much work? he’s only 20lbs and not even 3 feet tall, and somehow he takes up almost all my energy and patience. but then i look at him and hug him and i can’t believe he’s mine. his soft skin is my favorite. i don’t even know how to process these emotions!”

dad — “do you know how good he is at throwing a ball? like he actually gets some air and distance!”

mom — “food just disappears around him. grilled zucchini. frozen peas. banana bread. taco meat….he somehow eats the same amount of food I eat!”

mom — “he KISSED me today! Like intentionally leaned over, mouth wide open right on my cheek, and then leaned back and smiled. i kid you not.”

dad — “he’s kissing ME!! He came at me, opened mouth, and walloped one on my cheek. i’m not kidding!”

dad — “him and I…we chase each other around the island. and the laughing that happens….it’s awesome. he really laughs with that!”

mom — “he does so much better when he’s outside or playing with people. it’s like he’s a new kid when he goes outside”

dad — “i love him so much”

mom — “me too”
