Happy 1st Birthday Ethan

Today is probably more of celebration to me than it is to Ethan. One year ago today I was blessed with the greast gift imaginable. I can't believe a year has gone by and now my little baby is 1 year old. Happy Birthday Ethan! We love you so much.

Believe it or not Ethan didn't really like the birthday cake?! This is probably the first food I've ever seen him reject...ha ha.

Trip to Texas

This past week Ethan and I went to Texas to visit my family. This was the first time alot of my family even got to meet him! He was a big hit...of course. We had a great time. We went to the zoo, the park, chucky cheese, and much more. Ethan got about a million kisses on his trip.

This month has been full of new milestones for Ethan. He's pulling up on everything and has more and more personality everyday. Here are a few photos of my big boy.

Stealing Daddy's hat...Check out all those teeth!

I love finding him like this after he wakes up from his nap.

All smiles...

Now he would rather stand outside of the jumper than inside it...

My little active boy...He loves for me to walk him all around the house all day long. This is fun for him, but causes a back ache for me:) I think any day now we can expect him walking!

9 Months Old

Yes, my little baby is already 9 months old. However, he's starting to look less like a baby and more like a little boy! Everyday he just gets more and more fun. He LOVES to stand and cruise around. He also has started to say da-da! I don't think he knows what he's saying, but its still pretty awesome.

He's up and and mobile...once he's walking on his own I don't think he'll ever sit down

I just love that smile... and all 7 of those teeth!

Super Bowl Sunday was a blast! We didn't go anywhere, but we had our own little party just the 3 of us. Josh made us chicken wings, and I made us nachos! It was so yummy. Of course Ethan wanted to sample everything we had, so I had to make him his own little plate.

Super Bowl Sunday...we all look kind of crazy, but it was the best photo we could get

Ethan loves watching is so funny he could watch it all day!

I know this looks pretty silly, but he loves that diaper box:)

Winter Blues

This past month Ethan and I have had a bad case of the winter blues. Its been too cold to go outside, and to make matters worse my car has been out of commission. So needless to say we literally have had cabin fever. Yesterday was finally a semi nice day so I decided Ethan and I needed a walk. Don't let the sun fool you it was still pretty chilly, but after bundling my little man up with numerous layers of clothes we were finally out of house and he loved it! It actually ended up being a great day!

Mom and Ethan ready for their walk...

Snug as a bug...

My happy little man...

New Job! (and I need your help)

As many of you know I was recently laid of from my job as the Fitness Director at the Boulevard Apartments. I was bummed at first, but I think when one door closes another one always opens. So I'm SO excited to say that I got a new part time job from home. I am Denver's new "Healthy Living" Examiner for

Basically I am an independent contractor, or writing freelance, for the website. I will be posting new articles related to health and fitness 3-4 times a week. Now here is where I start to beg...

So I'm asking all my friends and family to help me out by subscribing to my site and checking in every now and then on my articles. The articles are short and fun, so it shouldn't be too painful:)

Thank you all for your help!

More and More Fun

Everyday my little man gets more and more fun! He has started to crawl now, but he doesn't do the traditional "on all fours crawl" instead he crawls on his belly using his elbows and feet to scoot him around. I call it the "Army Crawl". He also loves to stand up now. I think I spend most of my days now helping him stand and walk around the house....which is a recipe for a backache:) And my favorite is he gives kisses! It is the cutest thing ever. Once I figure out how to load video from our new video camera to the computer I will show you all of his new little "tricks". For now though her are a few pictures over the last month!

Ethan and Dad Wrestling...
Ever since Ethan was born Josh has been dying to throw some mats down in the garage to show Ethan some moves.

I must say Ethan put up quite a "fight" with dad:)

Ethan was also lucky enough to get to see his Grandpa Woodworth for a few days!

Here is Ethan in the crawling position however he still prefers the "Army Crawl"

As you can see Ethan LOVES his jumper. He could spend all day in there if I let him

He jumped himself right to sleep
