Ethan's New Favorite Spot

Jason discovered earlier this week that Ethan is just tall enough to look out the windows in our living room. Ethan doesn't stand by himself yet, but he loves to hold on to the windowsill and watch the world go by.

While I took these pictures, he was watching Ellie and her friend Olivia ride their bikes up and down the sidewalk. He was also watching Olivia's dog. Ethan loves his big sis, but truthfully I think he was more excited about the dog. The boy loves animals, and especially dogs.

He's starting to look more like a toddler than a baby, and it's happening much too quickly for me.

I want those chubby cheeks and neck to stay around longer than they will. I remember my mom saying that time passes too quickly, but when she mentioned that I was too young to understand. At that time the 3 weeks between Christmas and my birthday seemed like an eternity. Not so anymore! I just want to hold on to these days with my little ones. Ethan won't always let me smother him in kisses. Ellie already thinks she's a teenager, before too long she will actually be one. (Yikes!)

So, after an all-too-brief hiatus, we will again have windows covered with tiny hand prints. But, you know what? I don't mind a bit.


  1. He IS getting big! I miss the chubby cheeks and the rolls on my kids already. They really do grow up way to fast.

  2. Ethan is so cute. I know time really does fly. I was just talking to my in-laws yesterday. This year has gone TOO fast. I can't believe both Cameron and Ethan are almost one. Ethan sure is a cutie. We need to hang out and let the kiddies play.

  3. I love this post and it's so true! Thanks for sharing those chubby cheeks!
