So today marks my big guy's half birthday. Since his birthday typically falls outside the school year, we actually got to celebrate in his classroom this morning. Here he is, walking the earth around an imaginary sun five times to mark each year. (I swear I'm taking him for a haircut this very afternoon.)
Feeling a bit nostalgic, it seemed a perfect time to share something I had long forgotten about. This has to be one of the most amazing moments of the last five and a half years of parenting, and one that we had the unbelievable good fortune to capture on tape.
This is Ethan just before his second birthday. My husband thought it would be fun to make a "day in the life" video, so he was holding the camera as we walked around the neighborhood. What happened next, well...I think it's pretty obvious from my reaction that we didn't script or plan this.
Enjoy! And Happy 5.5, E. We love you to the moon and back.
