What is Ethan like at 7 years old?
He's very smart...............the BEST male reader in his class!
He's very sweet, sensitive, helpful, friendly and kind.
He's outgoing, talkative, social, popular, funny, extroverted, and has lots of energy!
He's a night owl and NOT a morning person............just like his Momma :)
He loves to snuggle.
He loves his family and church and is a great friend.
He's very generous and giving and has the biggest heart.
He's VERY athletic and has been since he was a toddler! You could hand him any kind of ball and he would know exactly how to handle it and had/has all the right moves down! His best sports are definitely soccer, football and baseball.
He LOVES the Marines (just like his Daddy) and has been one for almost every Halloween of his life!
He is a mini-me of Jason.
It's hard to imagine it's been 7 WHOLE YEARS! Seems like just yesterday I was as big as a house............AGAIN!! Seems like just yesterday I was planning the perfect delivery! He was induced, so I was able to shower, get ready, have my mom watch Ava and head to the hospital at my leisure. My best friend Jen and Jason were with me and we had the best time! We joked and laughed all the way thru it and he was out in 4 hours and 4 pushes! I told the Dr. if it was always that easy I could have 10 more and he said "You should" (he was Mormon) LOL. The whole pregnancy I was addicted to pancakes and lots of syrup! And to this day he is my sweets eater!
For Ethan's party we decided to do what he loves doing best...............PLAYING outside! It was basically one huge play date with many of his friends, a jump house, junk food and FOOTBALL! For his birthday present he asked to attend a "real live football game". His favorite team has always been the Saints (should be the Bears, I know!!), but Jason just "happened" to find tickets to HIS favorite team, the WA Redskins playing in Jacksonville the day after Christmas, so we surprised him with those and he was BEYOND excited (and so was J! LOL) Since just Ava and I went horseback riding, Jason and Ethan went to the game alone. It was unbelievably cold and they froze even though they were bundled up good. Ethan lost it about the 3rd qtr and ended up crying in the 4th, but they still had the best day ever and he still talks about that game! LOL
Happy 7th Birthday Birthday Ethan!!! We love you!!!
