Birthday Boy

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:

Grandma and Grandpa (Mike's parents) got him a Toddler Bed (which we are all excited about!).  He also got a big gift bag from Grandma and Grandpa, and on the top were clothes.  He grabbed the clothes, looked at them, then chucked them on the ground until he found a toy.  It was super cute :)

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 :)
