ethan can walk




and 9 1/2 months later, ethan is now walking. his doctor predicted he would start walking by 9 months and he was right. he shows funny mannerisms and still screams randomly on occasion. i guess his personality is starting to show. he didn't care much for santa at kahala mall, but stayed still long enough for some pictures. i'm thinking he's going to get a lot of toys for christmas. check later for my next post.

Halloween!




it was ethan's first halloween and we decided to dress him as a monkey. i think it was fitting for him, since he acts like one right now. he crawls all over the place and he can stand for a few seconds now. this little monkey is growing up fast! check out his dad's scary pumpkin. that's trey next to ethan. he had an awesome stormtrooper costume that his mom found.

Ethan-8 months




ethan made 8 months this past saturday(yesterday). and he's getting to be really rascal now. he found his crawling skills a few months ago and he's getting faster at it. he's always been curious, so crawling and curious mixed together means alot of running around for mom and dad. he went to his first gymboree class on saturday and he had so much fun. in fact, ethan had so much fun that we signed him up for more classes. we'll see how it goes. gymboree is good for exposing him to new environments and to start him socializing with other kids. we found out that he's not shy, he had no problem approaching the teacher and mingling with the other kids. he really liked all the balls, seeing bubbles and playing under the parachute. oh yeah, he got another haircut too. more reports to come later.

Ethan makes 6 months today!





ethan is 6 months old today. since the last post he's now eating solid foods and can roll all over the place. he's beginning to sit upright and just had his first haircut. ethan's mom didn't like his hair in his eyes so she had his bangs trimmed a little bit. one last thing, everything goes into his mouth, and i mean everything.

4th of July




we saw the fireworks display from kaimana beach in waikiki this year. it was ethan's first 4th and he came prepared with his new hat and cool shades. he actually didn't mind wearing his sunglasses this time, maybe because it was so bright there. it was a potluck with garlic chicken, musubi's, zippy's chili, shoyu hotdog, watermelon and so much more. sarah made a really good cake and stacy made ginger tea for everyone. too bad ethan couldn't eat anything, he missed out. he'll be chowing down next year for sure.

Ethan-4 months




ethan is now 4 months old. he's over 24 inches and almost 15 lbs. doctor said he's progressing well and is a very good baby. he's starting to roll over now, almost all the time. so mom and dad have to be on their toes a little more. can't imagine what it's going to be like when he starts to crawl! as he grows up, many are saying he looks more like dad than mom now. we think he looks a little like the both of us, depending on the angle. oh yeah, he's been sleeping 8-9-10 hours a night for the past month half now. so lucky!!!! check out the pics and vid

Mother's Day




And then there's mother's day. and the first for michelle. ethan is so lucky to have "perfect" mommy. everything has to be "perfect" with ethan's mom, "just right" is not good enough. he'd better remember that later in life. ethan is starting to smile alot now and a pro at making faces. he keeps raising his right arm up for some reason, making us believe he will be right handed.

Boy's Day



Ethan's first boy's day came and went. we got to hang some carp fish in front of our house thanks to grandma and grandpa choo. ethan also got a special gift from grandma and grandpa suzuki, a huge boy's day doll. he's a lucky kid, even though he doesn't know what's going on yet.

Ethan is 2 months old





ethan made 2 months last week. he's getting chubby, i see him everyday and i even notice the changes. he really likes to take a bath. when he was smaller he used to cry and move around. now he just lays there and makes funny faces while in the water. michelle has been taking ethan out now and then, mostly to the malls. everytime he sleeps, i'm told. he likes to sleep, just like dad. and gets bored at shopping, just like dad. check out the new pictures.

Good Bye Kobe.......


very sad news for us this past week, our beloved cockatiel "kobe" died this past sunday morning, he was about 5 years old. according to the doctor he had an infection. by the time he showed his condition it was too late. we gave some medicine, but the infection was too much for him. he died sunday morning in my hand. he was michelle's bird, but he liked me the best. he was very affectionate, kinda like a dog sometimes. he could whistle and say his name. we miss kobe very much.

5 days old



Ethan is 5 days old now. eating well, sleeping well, pooping well, you get the picture. he cries when his diaper needs changing or he's hungry. other than that, he's been pretty good, not too whinny. his suzuki grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousin russ won came last night. they all love him, remember this is the first grandchild for both sides. i think he's going to be one spoiled kid. check out the updated pics from last night.

Ethan Ken Suzuki is Born!



Michelle and I would like to announce the birth of our new son, Ethan Ken Suzuki. He was suppose to be named Kareem Abdul Suzuki, by a recommendation from our friend Kyle Kamakura. But that did not work with Michelle. Being a lifelong Laker fan, I dug it, but whatever, now he's Ethan. well, here's the stats, born 2-24-09, at 1:50 pm, 6 lbs(5 and 15.9 oz's to be exact), he was born a week early. Labor was kind of long but Michelle didn't give up and pulled thru like a champ. Everything went well after, Ethan is doing well and Michelle is fine but needs to heal a little. They say it's common for women to go thru what Michelle is going thru. anyway, we're back home today and since I'm having sleepless nights, I figure I update all my facebook and blog stuff. see the pics. If you want to see more pics in slideshow format, please email me and i'll send you the link. Now the game really begins! Keep checking back to watch him grow.
