Fast forward and hour later (the below is a bit TMI and graphic. Be forewarned):
Ethan's poor little stomach decided it did not like the drink. At all. It revolted in a major way. He threw up over himself, me and down the entire 20 step staircase (which actually curves so this is projectile vomiting at it's finest). At least he wasn't affected in any other way. Right after upchucking three times he looked at me and said, 'Go outside now?'. It wasn't until after we cleaned up, showered and dressed that he told me in no uncertain terms that he 'Don like that. Don like orange juice'. I don't blame him. After this I don't like orange juice either. Poor baby.

Edited only using Lightroom:
1) Adjusted white balance based on white door paint using eyedropper tool.
2) Cropped photo.
3) Increased brightness, contrast, clarity, vibrance.
4) Used skin smoothing tool on face. Photoshop will be much better for skin editing, but I don't have that!
5) Add very slight vignette

Me: Look Ethan - we get to eat chicken soup for lunch today!
E: Don like it. (Don't like it)
Me: You didn't even taste it yet. Let's try some.
E: (refusing to let the spoon near his mouth) How bout cookie?
Me: We don't have any cookies.
E: How bout man ereal? (As we refer to Quaker Oat cereal since it has a picture of a man on the box. As opposed to 'circle ereal' which are Cheerios)
Me: How about some soup?
E: How bout eese-stick?
Me: Okay you can have a cheese stick. (I come back and give him the cheese)
E: (plays but does not eat cheese stick. gives me a big grin). How bout cookie?
*Sigh*. I miss the days where he would readily guzzle down (and love!) everything that we plopped in front of him. But of course back then he didn't know how to express his preferences either. =P

I got an idea from my friend Cindy to make an album of our family tree (well actually it's just a print out of some pictures of members of our family). We will periodically whip out the pictures and he will say hi to everyone. Ethan has been missing his grandparents so decided to send a shout out.

This is the original SOOC:
Okay, I also have a problem where I like to tweak the settings around a lot and then I can't figure out which version I like best.

Ethan kept wanting to put the eggs in his pocket.
Even though we couldn't participate this year, we were able to scavenge some leftover eggs still hidden in the beach.
There was also a big festival in the town plaza. There were vendors selling balloons, clowns, and arenas to play egg hockey, ride a mini roller coaster, catch fish, and paint eggs.
Ethan had only eyes for the bouncy castle so we waited patiently for our turn to jump! The line was insane - it took us half an hour to reach the front, but it was worth it. Ethan loved bouncing around - so much so that he was very reluctant to leave (i.e. mini meltdown!) when our few minutes of fun were up.
And what was left of the balloon lion the next day. =P
