Well we've entered into a new stage in our life. Ethan is now in school! This picture below is from his teach meet & greet. We meet his teacher, saw his class room and learned all about the things he'll be doing while in class. I LOVE his teacher. She is absolutely wonderful, caring and fun! I think Ethan will have a great experience in class.
Yesterday was his first day. He was so excited to go to school. He's been wanting to go to school for a long time.
Walking with dad to his class room
Once we were inside he got to pick his own seat. I thought for sure he'd have a hard time saying good-bye but he didn't. He gave me a kiss and said bye. I think I was the one having the hard time saying good-bye. But I was strong and didn't cry. Got chocked up realizing just how big my little boy is and that I'd be leaving him in the hands of someone else for the next few hours. But I knew he'd love it and that she'd take good care of him. 
When I picked him up he was so excited to see me and had a smile from ear to ear. 

Our big little boy!

Mr. Ethan is growing up so quickly I can hardly stand it! Here are some pictures from his 2nd dentist appointment. I was so worried about him freaking out or getting up set at his 1st appointment that I didn't even think to bring my camera. But he was cool as a cucumber and acted like it was no big deal to have his teeth checked. And he was the same way the 2nd time. He is such a big boy! This picture makes me laugh cuz he's sitting there with a smile on his face like yup I'm cool and I'm not scared!
Watching a movie while getting his teeth cleaned.
All done! Teeth looked great and he got a little goodie bag 

She's walking!

Madelyn has taken a few steps here and there but nothing too exciting. So one day I told Jared to get across the room and then stood Madelyn up and told her to go see her dad. And she did! These videos are from that day just a few minutes after she started walking. The first video is funny to me cuz it totally shows her personality. She can sometimes be a little stinker.
Since then she'll walk every once in a while but she mostly likes to hold on to things as she goes. Just this last weekend she has finally started walking all on her own. She's a mover and our life is about to get crazy!
