Happy Birthday E!

Wow, here's the second birthday post in our family in as many weeks! We didn't really plan to have the boys during the same month, it just sort of happened that way. I've liked it so far, the first time around, because E doesn't have to get too jealous that it's W's birthday -- he knows is is just around the corner...

Well, what can I say? Having E certainly changed my life! I can hardly remember life without him. He's an amazing little boy -- so smart, so funny, so loving (when he wants to be). I had a fairly easy birth with him, and was really excited to start our family.

E has many talents, including telling jokes (ones he hears and ones that he makes up, which tend to be my favorite, haha), reading, writing, digging, creating 'inventions' (which remind me of my little brother thomas), and being a great helper to me. He is fast to do a favors for me when I ask him, and he loves to play outside. He's got lots and lots of energy, which is a blessing and a curse! He certainly keeps me on my toes.

The best part is being able to watch E as an older brother. While he gets annoyed at his little 'shadow' every now and then, he plays with him a lot and is always quick to share a snack, give a hug, and hold his hand. It's great to get to see.

We love you, E! Happy Birthday! :)

I remember Eli's second birthday party when he smeared his cake EVERYWHERE! What a sweet kid! I wish we lived closer so our kids could play!
