Three Months Later

I spent a little bit of time this morning reading through some posts from the past three months. As I sit in my living room and watch my beautiful son play in his activity gym, cooing and smiling all the while, I can't help but shed a few tears of joy. One of the posts that stood out the most was the one I wrote the day after Ethan coded. We were so lost, scared, and angry. I had NO IDEA what the following hours or days would hold for our precious baby. Now, here we are 6 1/2 weeks later and I'm simply amazed. I am thankful for God's grace that covers me and my family.

Being a mommy to this little boy has got to be the best job in the world! I feel like I could sit and watch him for hours. He's changing so much and I really try to cherish each day and every cute thing he does! While I get sad thinking about him "growing up" and not being this tiny baby anymore, I get just as excited about what each new day will bring. I look forward to watching his personality develop and seeing how he'll adapt to his special body. My prayer is that I'll be a mama who encourages him to figure it out, instead of inhibiting him in some way. I look forward to learning with him and celebrating each milestone along the way.

Here's to our miracle! Happy 3 months, Ethan; I love you so, so much!
