Ethan is walking all over the place now! He's still a little wobbly, but he's doing so good! We haven't been able to catch much of it on camera, because when he sees the camera, he drops down and crawls as fast as he can to get the camera. We distracted him with a birthday present last night, and he forgot the camera and we finally got a video.
At the beginning you can see his independent personality. Grandma leaned over to help him, and he didn't want her to touch him or help him!

1 year ago today, our little miracle arrived, and we've enjoyed him so much this last year. It seems like it was yesterday that we had him, but it also feels like he's been a part of the family forever. Strange how that works! We gave him a pirate party for his first birthday! Let's get the party started! I made him this cute little pirate cake! It was really my first attempt at a cake like this, but it turned out pretty good.

Our first stop was Jamaica! We hiked up the Dunn River falls. Right through them!!! It was so much fun to be right in the water fall. Then we took a chair lift through the rain forest. It was so much fun, but I don't have pictures of any of this yet, because they are all waiting to be developed on the water proof camera.
This is Andy getting ready to go snorkeling in Grand Cayman. This was by far my favorite part of the cruise. We snorkeled on a little reef and then went to Sting Ray City. It is a little sand bar clear out in the ocean where you can stand up, and there are a ton of Sting Ray. They come right up to you, and you can feed them, hold them, etc. They were swimming all around us and it was so neat.
In cozumel, we got off the boat, did a little shopping, and then took a taxi to Chaunkanaab beach. It is a really nice beach, and we did some great snorkeling here. We saw an Eagle Ray, which is like a sting ray, but a little different!
We had a really funny waiter named Roberto for dinner time. He would always tease me! On crab night he was sooo funny. He brought everyone their big plate of crab, and then he handed me a plate with ONE tiny crab leg and a cup of butter. He was so much fun.

Ethan had the stomach flu not too long ago, and then he was better for a few days, and he's been sick again for the last week. They said just give him pedialyte and if it's not cleared up, come in to see the doc. So, we went to the doc today to see what was wrong. He told us that sometimes after a bad stomach flu, babies can develop lactose intolerance. Crazy huh? So, he gave me some lactose free formula and said try this out. Hopefully he's right, and all will be well! Poor little guy!
