Ewan McGrewan

You've had a birthday, shout hooray!

We're gonna sing to you today!

One year older and wiser too!

Happy birthday, to you!

After he had licked off all the frosting.

Why not just go head first!?!

Ewan is one! It's amazing how time flies when you're busy. It feels like just yesterday we brought him home to meet the girls. Since yesterday was his special day, I'll kinda of introduce you to our little man. I've told many people that he is the perfect baby. That sounds funny, but he is. Ewan slept through the night at 3 months, he's always been a good eater, and is relatively easy-going. He's starting to become a little pickier now that he's learned he doesn't have to open his mouth for everything mom tries to feed him. Ewan has been walking for about a month. He loves following the girls around the house as they push strollers. He's really my little buddy and will come and sit with me whenever I'm on the floor. He likes to be held when I'm in the kitchen 'cause he knows I'll give him some food to keep him happy while I'm cooking or cleaning. Naps and bedtime are pretty slick with this little guy. I'll rock him for a few minutes and lay him in his crib. He may cry for a minute, but he's usually out within 3. Ewan loves spending time with Paul. He gets pretty sad when Paul leaves in the morning, and when he hears the garage door open, he heads straight for the door. He gives good hugs. He's learning kisses. His word is "uh-oh", which is more because I say it a lot to the girls than to him. Ewan really doesn't get into a lot of trouble, or maybe it's the fact the sisters seem to be the ones doing it first and he's just there...? I love how Ewan almost always has a smile on his face. He get s big grin when I say, "Ewan McGrewan, what you doin'?" and then comes running over to me. Aislee has started saying it with me. Ewan loves to be outside. We don't have much of a yard yet, but he'll stand at the door's window, gazing out at the open lot for quite some time. We have been so lucky to have such a wonderful, little boy in our family. The twins haven't quite figured out what to call him, but they often fight over "my baby" and who gets to give him a hug or a kiss. They're always wondering where he is if he's not in the room. Ewan is a joy in our home. We can't wait to see what his second year will bring!
