A Day with Ethan!

Just wanted to share with you what a typical day in the life of Ethan Nathanael is like.
Wakes up and ready to greet the world around 7:30 am. I love this time to snuggle with him and let him crawl up to the mirror on our headboard and just smile at his reflection.
Then he will play with some toys and crawl around the living room until his breakfast is ready.
He normally has a fruit and some oatmeal, then a couple ounces of milk to wash it down.
Now he is ready to play while Mommy and Daddy have their breakfast.Daddy leaves for the church at 8:58am since we live so close, he can walk. Ethan and I stand at the door and wave goodbye.
Then we will sit on the couch with a book, or play on the floor for a little while, or until I can tell he's ready for his first nap.Between 9:30 and 10am, he's enjoying his first snooze which will last an one and a half or two hours.

After nap, he's ready for a bottle, and it's also time to get lunch going. Daddy will be home for an hour lunch…

Risen Indeed!

See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, "Christ is risen!"
See God's salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead! (See, what a morning- Keith Getty)In all of history, only one man descended from heaven to earth. Lived a sinless life. Died. Then three days later, he rose from the dead! Praise be to God, who gave up his only beloved Son, so that you and I might have eternal life! Hallelujah, what a Savior!We enjoyed celebrating Ethan's first Resurrection Sunday, and had a great weekend with friends and family!

Camp Meeting

With Auntie Bec and friends in the Kitchen
At the alumni Luncheon

Ethan had the opportunity to visit our Alma Mater for the first time April 11-12th during a series of preaching services. We were blessed by the timely messages and refreshed by the fellowship. Ethan sure did enjoy seeing Cadence Anne and playing with her.

Movin' & Groovin'

ETHAN IS CRAWLING!!! Our little boy is officially moving and grooving his way around our living room! We set out a blanket for him and it can not be big enough...he just loves crawling all over it and he really likes getting over to our cd cabinet to open and shut the door!

He is so adorable and never wants to miss a thing! Life truly is good! We serve a great God!

Ethan's Update

Hi everyone! I have had a busy past couple of weeks doing lots of big boy stuff! I started clapping the end of March to music and now I can clap whenever I need to! I especially clap when Mommy or Daddy say "Yay! Good job!" Last Sunday, I said my first word, "Mama."
Then on Wednesday, I pulled up in my crib.On Friday, we went to dinner with the Postlewaite's, and afterward pretty Anna Grace and her mommy came back so we babies could play. Our daddies had a FWB meeting to go to.This Sunday I said my second word, "Dada!" I'm still trying to crawl, but I know it's going to be soon! Then I can get into everything! Yay!I also had some special visitors this weekend who got to see my new big boy stuff and hear me say my second word! I really enjoyed playing in the floor with Pops & Mimi, eating grapes, and playing my little piano. We have such a good time together!

Much love, Ethan

Spring Revival

We recently had Bro. Kevin Woolard preach and sing for our revival services at Bethany. The Lord spoke to hearts, including ours, and we hope and pray lives were changed as a result. Ethan really enjoyed Bro. Kevin's songs! On Tuesday night, he was jumping in my lap and clapping his hands to the Airport song!
