Ethan was here ...




Humm...Grandma's kitchen floor seems a bit dirty today...




See there, it's a cheerio!



and what's up with this thing?




I better make sure she doesn't have any of my toys in here...




I didn't know I was strong enough to pull this thing right off the wall!
Why is Grandma freaking out??



I've never done this before, but while she's not looking I think I'll try...



Wow, this is really HARD work!



Perhaps I should just play a while with my own stuff...


or go outside and swing with my sister and the neighbor kids!

I LOVE the Cheerio photo. I giggled at that one. This was so cute Jacquelyn!

I know, that was my favorite shot too! With those little fingers pointing!

That little Ethan is a heart stealer! Oh is he cute!! He was a pretty busy boy, keeping grandma on her toes! I miss those days when my grands were that age, such a precious time. Thank you for sharing and letting us enjoy just how special that time is!

Pat, He WAS a busy boy...but unbelievably he took two naps yesterday! 40 minutes in the morning and almost 2 hours in the afternoon! He RARELY sleeps during the day unless we are driving in the car, so I really felt I had an "easy" day :) I'm just trying to soak up all this love and joy while it's here...I know they grow up all too soon and get their own interests. My hubby ran out and bought a very sturdy brass socket cover and replaced it last night...so hopefully THAT won't happen ever again!!

This is one good-looking child! Those eyes! That hair! Just hope he survives those electrical outlets! You can't turn your head, can you! It exhausts me keeping up with ours when they are here!

My husband has a funny quote regarding all the children in our extended family. He says "we can't make them GOOD, so we make them good LOOKING"! ha ha!!!

Oh how I remember those days Jacquelyn...Ethan just melts your heart doesn't he...They really do keep you busy...and they all have their own little personalities and certain things they like to do...Sometimes you want them to stay little forever and then sometimes you don't. I survived...you will too! :)

He is truly so precious...I never saw a little one who was so excited to finally be able to scoot around! He is loving his new independence, and he sure is keeping me on my toes! Yes, I'm looking forward to "surviving"!!! ha!

These photos of little Ethan are adorable! Oh, my, that was scary--finding the outlet cover pulled off! This age is so very cute but I always think it is the hardest stage. They are so busy but have to be watched every minute. Blessings
