He's Seven!

Happy birthday to my explorer.

A chubby little toddler who drew me out of a dark place simply by needing his mother.

He's curious, sensitive, brave yet cautious, an introvert who loves his friends, a voracious reader with a love for almost any sport.

Slowly he is growing into himself and moving away from me. That's how it's supposed to be. Our lives are so much richer with his spirit.

Happy Birthday yesterday Ethan! Wow, seven years old!

Great pix, Liane, and I love what you wrote. You have a real gift-- for words, for photos, and in Ethan.

I told Brad about the party - he hadn't seen the pics yet- and he was like, "I wish I was Ethan."
