Tribute to Ethan on his 1st Birthday!


As of yesterday at 5:10 pm, Ethan is officially ONE YEAR OLD! I can't even believe it, and I've been here for every minute of it! My little boy is growing up, now if he would just start crawling or walking...:) He does have his first tooth coming in, so that's good, and he's learning to push himself up into a sitting position. Twice he has come so close, only to give up at the last minute. Hopefully another week and he'll have mastered that one! He is such a jabber-mouth, he talks constantly in so many different sounds with such inflection, that when he does it staring right at you, you think you've just gotten through a long and very descriptive conversation about one of his many toys!
Ethan has been such a blessing in our lives, I can't imagine life pre-baby. What did we do with all of our time? ;) But seriously, he is an amazing kid and has come so far. He still has a long way to go, but from his original diagnosis, it's clear he is a living miracle. We are so grateful to a Heavenly Father who loves us enough to trust us with such a special spirit, we don't deserve the amount of joy he brings. We know he has touched many lives and will continue to do so.

Happy Birthday Ethan, we love you so much!
