Todays post is very fitting. Not only is it to introduce all of you to Ed’s grandson; Ethan James but it’s also Christina’s 30th birthday. Happy Birthday Christina!
In case math wasn’t your strongest subject, Christina is Ed’s first child. Marcella is his second (she’s 24) and the kids are his third, fourth and fifth (He’s such a good Catholic).
On September 8, 2010, Ethan James came into the world. In the short time that we’ve known him, it’s evident that he loves to laugh, smile, babble and is a generally happy kid. He looks a lot like his Dad (Christina’s husband Adam) and is almost the same weight as Artemis.
Yesterday we had a playdate and Max and Artemis liked touching Ethan. Ethan didn’t seem to mind much, even when they poked him in the eyes (oops). When he cried (which wasn’t much), they didn’t really seem to notice. Ethan is very good at sharing his toys (unlike another little rascal I know, but that’s another post).
Ethan’s birth means that it’s now “Uncle Max” and “Aunt Artemis”. No matter what they’re called, we just hope that they all grow up to be friends.
Here are some pictures of the day.
