June in a nutshell

I guess that I was in much need of a blogging break....Life got a little busy (it still is), but I wanted to update the blog, so be prepared for some lengthy posts and lots of pictures.

June has been a busy month for us. First off, my baby turned 1 year old on June 1. Time really does seems like just yesterday that we were bringing him home and now he's doing things like this:

Cruisin' around

and Makin' messes (notice there is nothing on the bottom shelves...I wonder why?!)

But doesn't he look happy!

So Ethan at 1 year old:

  • Barks like a dog (ooh ooh)
  • Holds the phone to his little ear and says Hello
  • Climbs on everything
  • Got his first haircut (a trim really, just in the back as there is still not much on top)

  • Loves to sit on the couch by his brothers. Suddenly being down on the floor isn't good enough, but after sitting for about 10 seconds he decides that it is much more fun to crawl around the couch, over his brothers and the most fun of all is crawling from the couch onto the side table and knocking off all of Mom's carefully placed decor. Good times!

A few pics of Ethan's first birthday:

New Sandals...cutest feet ever!

June also brought more house projects...this month we got a new fence carefully constructed by Brett and our neighbor with a little help from this future carpenter



Then there was Father's Day...Brett had to leave us for a week for work, so I wanted to accomplish a couple of home improvement projects while he was gone in honor of Father's Day'

The Mantle...yep, I hung it myself

And rounding out the month....we celebrated this boys 11th birthday with food, friends and fun. Can't believe how grown up my boy is!

Happy 11th Birthday Erik!
