Playing with her Soother this morning..
I think this picture is so heartstoppingly beautiful. oh my heart!
This morning we had a little birthday party for Ethan. I bought an Ice Age Cake from Safeway using a gift certificate that someone sent us (because they were reading this blog) Thank-you Meredith! I was so glad for Dave's help this morning and so relieved that Rachel was happy!!
I couldn't help remembering back to last year, when I put on a birthday party for Ethan just SIX short days after that awful in-depth ultrasound when we were told the news - that our baby would likely die shortly after birth. I remember how hard it was to put on a happy face but knowing how necessary it was for us to 'celebrate' Ethan too. Wow - that seems like forever ago..

If you prayed for us, thank-you! Today was a very different day than yesterday....it feels like the stress meter is a little more 'normal' today. Sleep still isn't really happening for me but I have had some better nights lately. We are looking into buying a new bed, using money that our church very generously gave us. We tried out a memory foam and I liked it. Anyone (preferably someone who has a spouse that hurls themselves around at night?) have any suggestions on a good bed - one where you don't wake up every time the other person moves? :)
