Two years ago today, Trisha gave birth to Ethan Gabriel Stefanic. I can’t believe he’s already 2 years old!!! My how time flies!
We are having a party for him Sunday after church and I didn’t get to see him today so I don’t have a 2 year old picture. The one above is just a couple of weeks old, so I guess it’s okay to use for now. He’s holding his baby brother, Dylan, who was born Sept. 11.
Ethan is so smart! He talks up a storm and repeats everything we say. My favorite things he says are:
- "Hi Nana!" when I walk into his house
- When we say, "Are you cute"? He replies, "Yes I am", in the cutest 2 year old voice EVER!
- He says "Diwan" for Dylan, "Baby Brudder" for Baby Brother, oh and the best thing ever, he says "I wub you!" for I love you. It’s soooo cute!
Ethan’s favorite shows are Yo Gabba Gabba, Blues Clues and Veggie Tales. His favorite movies are Nemo and Da Munks (Alvin and the Chipmunks).
Ethan is learning to count and can count to 8, sort of, with a little help. His favorite number is 6.
He can jump up and down, lifting both feet off the ground at the same time! Something most kids don’t do until they’re 4!
Ethan knows the sounds of animals like bears, lions, doggies, cats, horsies and frogs! When he "ribbits" like a frog its oh so cute!
He knows all his body parts, and Dylan’s and Alyssa’s and Papa Jeff’s and Nana’s and everyone elses, and is sure to point them out as he names them.
His favorite foods are bologna, pizza, chicken, pickles, and cheese.
Ethan LOVES to play outside! He loves to run around in the grass and would stay out all day if he could. He also likes to play "catch me/hide-n-go-seek" with Karlie in the house. He loves it when she crouches down and then suddenly jumps up and says "BOO"!
Ethan is a born drummer, like his daddy. He makes "sticks" out of anything and everything that remotely even resembles a stick: forks, spoons, butter knives, rolled up paper, anything and everything. He even plays the air drums and air guitar!
He also sings some of his favorite songs from his favorite shows and "Jesus Loves Me"! I’ll have to try to get some video of all this cuteness to post in the near future!
Happy 2nd Birthday Ethan! Nana loves you!
