If I have to look at dust for one more day, I am going to SCREAM! In October, I thought it would be a great idea to put an addition upstairs. It now almost March and I'm STILL looking at dust. Granted, we are adding some much needed space, and it will be awesome to have another bathroom, I just wish it would be done already. I swear, there is dust in every nook and cranny of my house - I dust once a day and it's still EVERYWHERE! I even found dust in the utensil drawer. Geez. Today, I got motivated to go up there and put some paint on the walls - I got one room done before Baby E woke up from his nap. Only 4 more rooms to go......

In other news, Ethan has started to "talk" all the time. He is constantly trying out his voice - says dadadadada and lalalalalala and a combination of both. He also has figured out a way to grunt and scream when he's happy. It's pretty funny. Today he was in his Johnny Jump-up for about 25 minutes just talking and bouncing. I just sat at the kitchen table and watched him. I never knew I could love another human being as much as I love him. He's gotten in the habit of opening his mouth really wide and grabbing my face and "kissing" me. It's more like just putting his open mouth on my cheek or trying to suck on my chin. It sounds gross, but it's SO cute. He's such a good-natured little guy, and we are having a great time watching him learn and grow. He also has a favorite movie - I can sit him in front of the TV and put on his Baby Einstein "water" movie and it gives me about 40 minutes of free time to do some random stuff around the house.

Little guy fell asleep in the car on the way home from dinner tonight - wish I could have done the same!


  1. You THINK you love him now-wait til you have grandkids-it's even better.

  2. Love the pic - he's so happy! CUTE!!
