Today my youngest son Ethan turns 12. Wow, time has flown since the day Ethan came into the world, and today we celebrate his birthday and thank him for all the smiles he has brought. I still call him my “little Ethan” but he’s nearly as big as me now and still growing fast, with a wicked sense of humour and a cheeky smile.
I’ve had to dig through the old photo albums and scan in some of the old pictures (pre-digital) but the old ones are always the best, and there is still something really special about flicking through old photo albums that I did get slightly distracted.
This is Ethan when he was just minutes old with Dave
and here he is just a few days old with Miles photobombing
I mentioned his cheeky smile previously well here it is
We also couldn’t miss out on the obligatory “in the bath” shot
Moments to cherish in Ethan’s life .. like the day that he climbed into the washing machine (or was he pushed in by Miles?)
or when he decided to hide in the drawer of the TV cabinet when we were moving house
A proud day, and an exciting one for Ethan too by the big grin on his face, on his first day at school
A determined look on a ride at Blackpool during one of our mini breaks
Here are a few recent pictures. I love this one with me and Ethan on the way to the village pub when we were staying in a yurt in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales
Last year on one of our visits to see Cooper before we brought him home
And then Ethan earlier on in the year when we had a few days in London before we went to see England at Twickenham.
So all that’s left to say is Happy Birthday son … love you loads xx
