Ethan is 9! I can't quite believe it to be honest, on one hand I guess it does feel it's been nine years since he was born, but on the other, the last nine years have completely whizzed by. He's changed so much and grown so quickly and he continues to make us feel incredibly proud of him! He's the same age now as I was when my Mum married my Step-Dad, and I find that odd in a way, as I remember that day clearly, yet here we now are - me having a nine year old myself! The years certainly do fly!

This year Ethan's birthday fell on Easter Sunday and actually that was quite handy as we stayed over at his grandparents house (my in-laws) and no one had to worry about work the next day with it being a bank holiday. Ethan got to enjoy 3 days of celebrating too. The four of us went back to Paultons Park on the Wednesday before his birthday, which is a great theme park for his age and one that we've been to many times now and have always enjoyed.
