Happy Birthday Ethan

You came into the world with a robust wail, letting the world know you had arrived safely. As I slept your Dad held you, to gaze at a new son, a beautiful boy. As the weeks passed your smiles grew more frequent, so big, so joyful. I want to remember all the stories I have heard you tell, the memories that you can recall so vividly. The dreams of the future, the hopes for tomorrow.
Ethan Alex Wilson. Your name you would tell anyone, means:
Strong Defender of man. You my son, a blessing, a believer, and I cannot wait to see what this year brings for you!

41*  You see life differently then we do, you always find an interesting way to view the world.
42*  Celebrating 9 years of knowing you. Believing that.
43*  Silly smiles and wiggly teeth, holes in the knees of your pants from being wild at play.
44*  Math, numbers, equations, how much I treasure playing these games with you.
45*  The one good friend that you have had since birth, that laughs at all your jokes, and is serious when you need him to be.
46*  The dark hair and intense brown eyes
47*  For your Dad & I, who are thankful for you every day.
48*  Your body clock and the way you are awake before anyone else.
49*  Joy comes in the morning, and I pray it rests with you in the night.
