Ethan just loves life. The best example is when he was 2. He woke woke up from a nap, thankfully Mike and I happened to be outside of his bedroom, and that handsome little boy shouted, "Yes! I wake up!" Truly that is how he has approached life ever since!
This boy is skilled in the art of detail! He can spend a couple of hours putting a lego ship together without skipping a beat. If one piece is moved by a sibling...you better believe he'll know! He comes home from school to inspect the shelves in his room. If a little one has been in there and moves one little thing, he'll know. I think it's fantastic that he pays attention to such small details! Often it's the little things that get overlooked in life.
As his Mother, I can confidently say that my son is wonderful. He's a great big & little brother; a great student, athlete, friend and example to others. Now he, on the other hand, would never say such a thing...probably a good thing. Ethan is so very humble. If anyone ever compliments him he'll reply with a small thank you. He's never boastful on his abilities, even if he knows he's done well. That's such a good quality to have.
He started talking at a young age and has done a good job of speaking his mind ever since. Although he has a very sweet and mild way of asking questions he is very clear when trying to get his point across. That, to me, is a skill.
There's just something about him...he inspires me to be a better me.
May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!
