to Ethan (8 month +2d):
"My dear boy, thank you so much for being such a great baby and let me have plenty time to paint. You are teething right now (it's your 4th tooth coming through) and it makes you hurt so bad. My heart breaks every time you cry and rub your gums. Hopefully after this one you will have a longer break than before.
Today you stood up holding on dad's chest and let go for about 15 seconds. We screamed and scared you a bit, but please forgive us because we were too excited to see you stand haha.
Love you to pieces!
