He's always loved the ocean, and the things in it.

He's currently studying a unit on the ocean at school.

This morning when I came downstairs, he was looking at a beautiful ocean book we borrowed from the library.

"Hey mom," he says.

"Do you know what's in the deepest part of the ocean?"

After picturing the scene from Finding Nemo, where the goggles fall and fall, I just answer, "What buddy?"

In a dramatic voice, "Things yet to be discovered."

"And when I grow up and am a Fighter Jet Pilot, on my days off I am going to build a submarine so I can be the one to discover them."

Keep dreaming big, little man. The world is yours. :)

Seriously cute.

Ethan, while peeking through the window at the cookies that were baking in the oven,

"We can't eat them yet. They still need to grow up."

My brudder...

The big brothers just can't get enough of the little guy.

Kellan piped up from the back seat in the van last week that he wants to be a doctor when he grows up, "just like Dr. Larson" (our pediatrician.) Thinking about how methodical and meticulous he can be, we affirmed that we thought he would make a great doctor.

Jumping on the bandwagon, Ethan announces he wants to be a doctor also. "Oh, you want to be like Dr. Larson too?" we ask.

"No," he answers very matter-of-factly, "like Dr. Seuss.".

That's our Ethan. :)
