Happy Halloween!!!

The costumes we were planning weren't getting done on time, so we had to throw these together the night before Halloween, but I think they turned out beautifully, even if they were last minute.

The Boy Who Lived

Don't we have a cute little wizard? As you can see, he got a good giggle out of his costume.

Umbridge and Harry

Believe me, we get along a thousand times better than the real Umbridge and Potter.

Hagrid and Harry

ethan didn't know quite what to think of his dad. Matt had to take off the wig for Ethan to recognize him.

Hogwarts Gamekeeper

If you'll look closely, you'll see a little pet dragon sticking out of Matt's pouch.

Hogwarts High Inquisitor

Ethan was in awe of how "Pink" I was.

You're going to want the sound on for this video.

Mobile boy

Ethan loves being able to move around. He's even taken to using his walker as a scooter. He pushes with his right foot and just rides around the living room.

Puppy Love

To help Ethan sleep through the night a little better, we bought him a stuffed dog toy to cuddle up to in the night. It actually seems to be working and, as you can see, he likes having a buddy in his crib with him.

Clowning around

I know this is not the most dignified thing to do for family togetherness time, but he looked so cute we just couldn't resist. I think he liked the joke of wearing his pants on his head as well.

I want to be like Daddy

Ethan actually does a very good impersonation of his daddy. (This is early in the morning after Ethan had gotten up about every hour, so please ignore the way his mommy looks in the background)

Bubble Wrap!!!

Ethan discovered the joys of dancing on bubble wrap this week. It really is amazing how babies can make a toy out of anything.

I'm going to Mail myself to you!

We got a package in the mail recently, and of course, Ethan found the box itself much more interesting than the actual contents of the package.

Matt and I recently decorated Ethan's nursery(finally). I sewed the curtains for the closet and window and painted the shelves. I also sewed the bed skirt on the crib and the covers on the book shelf and side table. Matt hung the shelves, the curtains and he hand made the puppet stand.I think it's the coolest part of the room. he certainly worked hard on it.

New Nursery

A long day

I know it's not the most flattering picture, but you can sure tell what he's thinking. I think we put him through a little too much that day.

Lord of the Rings

We're sure he's trying to figure out which one is "The One Ring".

Future Mozart?

I think we may have a future musician here. He actually looks like he's reading the music and trying to play it!

a proper education

Matt wants to make sure Ethan is exposed to only the best literature the world has to offer. Batman is an absolute staple to his literary knowledge.

Ethan from the beginning

We realize it's been about 7 months since Ethan was born, but we JUSt got this website, so we figured we catch every body up. This is our son, Ethan. He was born the 28th of February, 2007. He was 8 lbs 7 oz and we love him to death. As you can see, he has his daddy's hands.
