We're Still Here...

...just a little worn out from the past few days! We had an amazing time celebrating Christmas with family and I think it's safe to say that Ethan thoroughly enjoyed it, as well! He barely slept, but smiled and played more than I've ever seen. I mean, really, who wants to sleep when you get to hang out with all four grandparents in as many days?!

Not that guy!

I'll update y'all on our recent happenings soon, but first I wanted to fill you in on a few changes I've made to the blog. It's true that I tend to update my Twitter page much more frequently than I update the blog, and many of you have "missed out" on some things that I may have mentioned over there instead of here. So, since I aim to please, you can find my most recent Twitter updates in the right-hand column, all the way down at the bottom, under the heading "What Are We Doing?". You're welcome.

While you're there, glance over at the left-hand column and you'll see the cutest picture of the chubbiest cheeks you've ever laid eyes on. If you click on that picture, you'll be directed to our Flickr site where we house the many, many pictures we take of that chubby little face.

I've also added a few other heart friends to the blog list, and I've included a brief summary of Ethan's journey thus far.

For me, the purpose of this blog has been three-fold. At first, it was a way to allow friends and family to stay up-to-date with my pregnancy and Hannah's Ethan's upcoming birth. Then, it was a definite source of information as Ethan's condition was unraveled, but it also provided a way for me to express my thoughts and emotions about it all. Now, it is still those two things, but I have a desire that it will be found by other parents out there who may be traveling down this same road.

For those of you who come here daily/weekly/monthly to check in on Ethan, I hope you'll enjoy the little additions that will give you another glimpse into his amazing world.

For those of you who are just starting out on your "heart journey" or are even in the midst of it, I pray you'll find hope and encouragement through Ethan's story.

And, as for me, I'll just keep writing. Through the happy, sad, frustrating, scary, and exciting times, I'll write.

Thanks for sticking around! Can't wait to share some of my favorite moments from Ethan's 1st Christmas :)

Until then...
