My Big Boy!

Before I post birthday pictures, I had to let you see Ethan's first haircut! Today I got enough courage to cut Ethan's hair myself. I was almost in tears doing it. But, as you can see, no harm done! Afterwards, I just sat back and watched Ethan play... he is so grown up and so handsome.

Austen Men

Crack me up! Becca and I watched Pride and Prejudice last night. I couldn't wait for OPB's Masterpiece Theatre on Sunday to see the next part. I went online to check the schedule and I had to laugh at this! I know Kati and Becca would have a blast looking at who came in first place!

There He Goes!

I had to post a picture of Ethan walking so that family can see! Look at him go! Today I was dog sitting and Ethan just took off and went after the black lab! The lab was afraid. I would be too...

Won Again!

This month's question for teachers on Scholastic's Winning Ideas was "What Are 15-20 Books You Can't Live Without." That was a hard question... as many of you know I have a weakness for children's books. I could never pick so few. So I picked 15-20 Farm and Spring books and won! Check out the article at!

Not Just Any Ol' Rash

So, Sunday Ethan woke up with not just a rash but hives! Now it does bother him. Monday we were in the doctor's office for 5 hours. It was so not fun. By the way, I never want to be a single Mom. For those who are, you deserve a medal! To have to get a child itching and wanting to tear his skin off in the doctor's office, to lunch, to the lab to get a urine sample, to Safeway to get medication, and home again was no picnic!

On a sweeter note, Dave surprised me with a "walking" valentine. Ethan walked into class today with a HUGE balloon cliped to him that was playing "You're the One." We were in the middle of Circle Time and when Ethan saw all the children he clapped. It was awesome. I wish he stayed longer. I love my two special guys. Dave also got me a chocolate box and the same kind but tiny from Lil E.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sick and Walking

So I got Ethan up this morning and he was covered head to toe (literally) with a rash. I called the doctor and apparently when a little one has a viral infection they usually get a rash too. Wow. I was surprised at how it didn't seem to bother the little guy. Other than him being irritable from being sick, he did pretty good today. Ethan is now walking all over the place and well... let's just say "We're in for it!"
