Spring Has Sprung...

...And at my house. Who would have thought? Not me! But when I looked out my window one morning to find flowers all over my front yard, a big smile came to my face.

Now this is my favorite spot at our house.

And this is my favorite activity... walks to City Park.

I love Spring!

All About Ethan

I just took a look at my couch. I think blue may need to become my new favorite color.

I know the last few posts have been Ethan-less (that's a word, right?). Let me make it up to you by introducing you to the all about Ethan blog. See I have this goal to keep a somewhat detailed log of each of my children's first year of life. I could do that on this blog, but for my own sanity and organizational purposes when it comes to making my blog books at the end of the year I have created him a separate blog. If you ever feel like a more detailed update on our guy, just head on over there. Don't worry this doesn't mean that you wont ever see him on here. This is a blog about our adventures and parenthood is definitely an adventure.

First Date

a d

So two weeks ago I gave birth. I still think that is pretty crazy. I am still adjusting to the lack of sleep. But Saturday night, I got the night off from my new calling in life. My sister and her boyfriend were in town. My parents arranged for us to go to the Nuggets game with them. So Grandma and Grandpa Wray watched Ethan while Aaron and I watched the Nuggets loose to the Spurs. Even though Denver lost it was a great time!

We ate at the Blue Sky Grill...

We goofed around...

We got Ethan hooked up for next season...

Oh yea and I think we watched some basketball...

Thanks parents for the night out!

Goodbye Pregnancy, Hello Ethan!

We did it! He is finally here! I couldn't be more in love. Even though the last 10 months were hard, I would do it all again because I have never laid eyes on anything as beautiful as my little boy.

Everything with the surgery went well. It was a very relaxing day for me. I can't say the same for Aaron who actually had to watch the surgery. We went in to the hospital at 11 to get ready. By 1:30 I was in the operating room. Then at 1:49 Ethan was here. Aaron recorded the surgery on video. I have yet to watch it, and I am not sure if I will ever have the guts to do so.

Ethan did have to spend his first night in the ICU. He struggled to breath because of some excess fluid in his lungs. He is doing great now. We spent from Friday to Tuesday in the hospital. They kept me an extra day because I would get dizzy while walking around. With my history of passing out they were nervous to send me home. We are all home now and we are all doing great. Recovery has been a breeze. I count it as a blessing for the last 10 months I've endured.

Check out some of his first week...

In case you're now on Ethan overload, an Ethan blog is under construction. I'll give out the blog link soon. Thank you for all the support over the past 10 months. Ethan is finally here!
