Ethan's second birthday was on May 22. Mike went in to get him when he woke up and said "Happy Birthday" to Ethan, and Ethan smiled and said "Happy C-U".
We had a little party for him, pretty much just the grandparents (and my brother visiting from Alberta). He really enjoyed himself. I was starting to regret not inviting more people, but he was pretty overwhelmed with the amount of people we had there, so it was a good thing it was that small.
Here is Ethan with his birthday cupcakes as we sang to him. He loved his "Happy C-U" cakes.
Grandpa Ian and Olive got him a slide and climbing set for his birthday:
He got some more really great presents from everyone else too. His Great Grandma (Mike's Grandma) got him a lantern for camping and a Bubble Lawn Mower. My brother got him a neat chunky puzzle. My mom got him some good books, including kid stories from the bible, and a book about castles. We got him a sleeping bag, a few little gifts, and a Wagon.
Mike ended up having to go to bed early (he had been feeling sick all day, then got acid reflux and couldn't take it any more). Ethan stayed up until 9:15 - I figured we'd wait until the last guest had left. When I was getting him ready for bed, he wanted to read a few more books, but I convinced to just relax for a minute and sit with me on the glider/rocker. He was out in seconds :)
