*** HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ETHAN!!! ***

4 years ago today he showed us his handsome face…

and I still marvel at the surprise of a SON!

He’s learned to pump on the swing this summer…

He’s close to being able to whistle…

Next, he’ll be learning to peddle a bike…

with reading close behind…he’s already showing interest in his sister’s phonics.

Sigh. The march of time. I’ve been giving him extra squeezes today and holding him in my lap a little more and longer. I don’t know why I let the busyness of life get in the way of enjoying these and so many more precious things so often…

Please, Father, to help me to keep the fleetness of time and the preciousness of my children in mind from day to day, moment by moment.

Thank you Lord for this wonderful sweet loving BOY!
