happy birthday ethan!!!

today, four years ago, ethan was born!!!! all the dates i had put his due date on july 1st, and the ultrasound but him just a bit later, on the 2nd. true to his personality form, i started having contractions on july 2nd, around 1am. we went to the hosptial and they kept me because my blood pressure was high, that was around 2:30am. so we spent the whole day in the hospital, in a bed with our (not) friend pitocin. my parents were en route, driving from WA to UT. they got there and he was born around 4:50 in the afternoon. whew! that was 2 hours of pushing to get him here! but he is totally worth it!!! he is such a sweet boy, he loves his sister and all his family. he is smart and curious. he loves to figure out how things work, he has boundless energy and he is very excited about everything that's going on. he loves to help me cook, he loves to paint and do anything with glue! we love you so much ethan, thank you for being such a great boy, the first in our family! you are a great big brother!!!

just a minute or two after his birth....
daddy, mommy and ethan
