To Ethan (Transformation)

Dear Ethan, 


You know what, your neighbor buddy who's few months younger than you, is way over walking now. He is TRYING TO RUN!!!!!! And it brought to my attention that your persistence of being on your four has started to get the whole family super itchy.

You do stand up and take a few steps sometimes as long as you hold onto something. But when you travel from one place to another without anything besides oxygen, you will go down on the floor and start crawling. We've been trying to convince you that neither the house will collapse nor earthquake will happen when you let your hands go free. But you've been pretty stubborn until one afternoon a couple days ago. You were standing up in front of the TV cabinet and hand-banging the screen of our 52" HD TV. That TV is the last thing in this house that you are allowed to destroy or else I will have to watch those crazy shaky puppets with you on my laptop for the rest of my life. So I said "No, Ethan!", and you LET GO OF BOTH OF YOUR HANDS FROM THE CABINET and turned your head to look at me. There you were standing with your body surrounded by pure air for FIVE SECONDS which I thought was 5 million years!!!!!! Then I yelled out to your father, "Hey, all along we thought our child was born a reptile, I think he is starting to transform now!"

Love,
Mommy

Wow...Ethan has grown! He looks so adorable! I'm sure you are having lots of fun playing and teaching him lots of things. Time passes very fast and soon he will be a fine young man. When I look back, I felt I have not carried and played with my children enough and now they are grown up. It felt like just yesterday.
