Yesterday Ethan turned the big 8! Kids seem so, well, old when they turn 8. I guess it's because they get baptized. Yesterday we got in the car and he sat in the seat next to his booster. I asked why he wasn't in his seat and he said, "I'm 8 now. I don't have to sit in that thing anymore!" Well I guess we're down to 3 car seats!
He got to go to a friend's baptism after church today, and I could tell he is getting excited for it to be his turn. ( He will be baptized in December when Grandma and Grandpa come to visit.) I feel like now I have two big boys and no more little ones--but I guess that's how it goes.
We celebrated yesterday and today and Ethan refers to it as his "birthday weekend." it's not good enough to celebrate a day. We should celebrate the whole weekend! So here's a few pics of his "birthday weekend!"
Happy Birthday Ethan. We're so excited for you to be 8! And even more excited to have you as part of our family!
