How they Grow!

I had to attach these pictures of Ethan and his best bud Jacob. How they grow is so fitting. Our little, sweet babies are turning into little boys. I was looking through pictures of the last two year, and this hit me. They are still the cutest and lovable little people on the earth!

Ethan's Birthday

I know I am a little late on the updates...but here goes. We celebrated Ethan's second birthday March 2nd with an Elmo Party. Ethan was so excited to see all his friends and cousins. Although the day was very cold, I think he had a great time. The highlight of the party was "Dorothy" Elmo's pet gold fish.

I think that Ethan's birthday is more special to Jeremy and I than Ethan. Although Ethan is too young to truely understand about his adoption, Jeremy and I are reminded on his birthday. Two years seems like yesterday when we were busy putting together a nursey in one week. I hope that I will always remember the events on the day Ethan was born. There have been times when I wish I could watch that day on the TV. It was such a special feeling. Looking back I have to think how I made it through the day and kept everything so quite. I also have to remember my dear friend Mary, who is not a crier at all, I made her cry when I called her to tell her that I was getting a baby too!

A very sick household

Well, today was my first day back to school since last Monday. I was scheduled to take Tuesday and Wed off so Jeremy could have sinus work done. Monday morning, Ethan's sitter calls to tell me that he is running a high fever. I leave school, take him to the doctor...RSV, and two ear infections! So, no day care for the rest of the week. We had great fun doing breathing treatments, taking lots of medication, having chest x-rays, and being on 'lock-down'. Lucky, Jeremy's mom was able to help a few days. Ethan's breathing treatments were the best. We called them "breathing smoke". Thank goodness he is not old enough to understand 'smoke'. Jeremy was down all of Tuesday and Wednesday with his sinus. Hopefully now he will be feeling alot better! Ethan has seems to be much better. He had a great day playing with friends at day care.
