My friend Sue tagged me on her blog to pass on this random dive into the photo album that is our computer's memory.
So here goes:
Sixth folder, sixth picture, blog about it.
Looking at this picture my mind goes in a dozen different directions at once. Ethan is around 11 months old and we were just about to move out of the house on 36th street in Ogden that we'd been renting for a little over two years. Look at those cheeks! He certainly was no light weight.
He's sitting on the bear chair which Matt's sister Marci gave him for Christmas. Normally I'm very opposed to large stuffed animals, but that chair has been well used. Matt and I have both taken more naps on our kids floor using the bear chair as a pillow then I could count. It's been a usual spot for story times, a landing pad for daring jumps, and the ultimate end-all weapon in pillow fights. It's a lot flatter now than it is in the picture.
The backpack and folders on the couch in the back are a sign that the semester was in full swing for both of us. I was working at Weber State Credit Union and Matt was at UPS. We were just starting the transfer from Ogden and WSU to Logan and USU.
Ethan was such a good little baby, happy and easy going. I just can't believe how quickly he has grown from this chubby little cherub into the stretched out kid he is now. I miss having him as that snuggly little boy but I'm also glad to have the boy he is today.
Marci, I think your's is the only blog I read that hasn't been tagged yet so you're next!
