We got a new book this weekend that may have taken over Toad on the Road. We now have Pig At Work and it's all about a pig that has a job DRIVING A BACKHOE. Ethan could not contain himself when we opened this book (from Amazon by the way for about $3).
Speaking of books....I cannot get through this one without crying! Ethan pulled it off the shelf one day and seems to really like it. It is a book about how much we love Ethan and that no matter where he is in life, he can feel our love in the wind or the rain or the sun. BEYOND. It makes me think about him packing up and leaving for college already.
Ethan was really into books today. He has some books in the living room and he pulled some out, climbed into my lap, leaned against me and we read this morning. In those moments, I literally try to suck the air out of the moment because it is so great.
We hung around the house on Sunday while Erik went surfing. When Ethan woke up, we had lunch at home. Erik's tomato plants are blooming so they picked a tomato for Ethan. Ethan bit into it like an apple!
He also loves edamame. Evie does too. Look at her begging for food....
After lunch, we went to the playground.
Ethan can go down the big slide by himself. Erik didn't need to hold him but in this video, he did. Such a daredevil!
While EGL had afternoon nap, I went to Michaels to return something and pick up a frame. When I came home, he was playing and reading.
He also helped me make dinner. He came into the kitchen and wanted me to hold him while i was making dinner so I let him "help". He carried a box of pasta around and tried to feed Evie. He held a spoon and hit the chicken with it. haha
Erik brewed so Ethan gave him a hand with his equipment.
Good weekend together!
