HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIRACLE BOY!!!

Hannah was still small on her 2nd birthday, and I think she weighed around 22 pounds, but once she hit 4, she's the tallest kid in class! Congrats on a big milestone! [:D][:D]

Happy Birthday Ethan! I can't believe it's been 2 years. I always looked forward to Meg's updates and am thrilled that everything has turned out the way it has. What an inspiration!

Yes, that's right........two years ago today I delivered Ethan, at 27 w/5 d, weighing 1 lb. 9 oz. (or 700 grams [:)]). Can't believe it's been that long!

We are so grateful to even have him at all, since most of the doctors predicted he'd never make it. But, not only did he make it, he's flourishing! Still tiny, around 22 lbs, but amazingly smart, strong, healthy and feisty! [;)] Motor skills are completely on track, and he climbs and runs everywhere with no fear! [:0] Speech is catching up, and he loves to chatter on and also to try to sing!

He is truly a miracle, and as always, I thank you guys for your prayers, concern and good wishes for him and for my family. some of you have been there since even before he was born, and followed his progress all along. I wanted you to see him now, so I'm posting a link to his 2-year-old pics we had taken last weekend. Hope it works. He's quite the little photogenic boy........I know, I'm a little biased!

I wanted to post more, but can't figure out for the moment how to compress the image size enough for them to accept it at villagephotos. If I can later, I'll put more on. [:(]
