Half of a Childhood

Yup....this cool dude of mine has turned 9!!

It's hard for me to come up with anything to write because my kid's birthdays pretty much knock the air out of me.  They're growing up too fast and it's hard for me to realize that another year has flown by. I was so busy planning Ethan's birthday that it didn't occur to me how big he has gotten until Eric said,"Wow, I can't believe he is going to be 9. That means half of his childhood is gone."  

Ugh, excuse me???  Way to twist the knife in this poor momma's heart.  Geez!

Eric's right though, Ethan is halfway to 18 and it terrifies me.  Ethan is super easygoing, and always has a smile on his face.  He is a people pleaser and loves being in the social mix.   He is hilariously sarcastic and rocks at math.  I don't think I could've picked a better big brother for his siblings and I'm keeping my fingers crossed he has the same amount of energy during his high school years. 
I see big things for Ethan and just know with the right amount of motivation, he will lead a pretty extraordinary life!

To celebrate his birthday, Ethan choose three friends to join him for a day of fun.  After playing in the arcade, they enjoyed two rounds of laser tag and we finished it off with pizza and cake. 
Ethan and his friends had a great time!

I feel your pain as we are fast approaching the 9 year mark ourselves. Its amazing to watch them grow into big people but terrifying and sad at the same time. Ethan is an amazing kid!
