Busy Week

It's been an exciting week in Rexburg and it will continue to get busier as the weekend continues! Grandma and Opa Rindlisbacher came down to visit and spend time with their grandson, we got some pictures taken of Ethan to put in the birth announcement, and the occupational therapist came and worked with him for the first time. She'll come back once a week to work with him, and she sounded really positive about the improvement he has already made since birth. Hopefully this early intervention will give him a kick start on healing the damage that was done.
Ethan just continues to amaze us every day with his progress- This week we saw him smile for the first time, it was a really cute, big open mouthed smile. He is really good at tracking, and he will follow you around the room if you walk past him. We have a tall black lamp right next to the chair in our living room, and if you put him next to it he'll stare it up and down.
This weekend we will give Ethan a name and a blessing, and we're excited to see those who are going to come up for it!

He was way tired and wouldn't stay awake for many of the pictures so we took a lot of them while he was asleep.
This is Grandma Rindlisbacher's favorite one of Ethan.

The one we did get of him looking at the camera he was yawning :)

Still sleeping, but it was good because he stayed in any pose she put him in!

I know this one is sad but I think it's so cute!

This is Ethan right before the pictures-- of course he was awake and happy then :)
