Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! We feel so blessed to be celebrating our first Mother's Day - it's been a long time coming!

Ethan's two top teeth are now emerging - slowly but surely. With the bottom two, he didn't have teeth one day and then they were completely in the next. These are taking their own sweet time and completely messing with his nap schedule! He's still (amazingly) sleeping through the night - just can't figure those naps out!

My business is picking up and I'm enjoying all of my outside projects. I'm writing a site now for an OB/GYN in Dallas and have several other new business opportunities on the table. Finding the time to work is always a challenge, because I would much rather be spending the time with our little E!

I will send out e-mail reminders as the date gets closer, but Heath and I would like to ask for your prayers regarding our upcoming court date. We are scheduled for May 25th at 9 a.m. Both Ethan's lawyer and CPS have filed for parental termination. We are praying that this will be the end of the questioning and ask that you join us in prayer at 9 a.m. on the 25th and also leading up to the date. We are not in danger of loosing Ethan should the court ruling not go for complete termination, but it would drag the situation out a bit longer. Thank you all for your support and prayers!

I'll leave you with a picture of our handsome stander. He's taken to mountain climbing using the knobs on the kitchen doors - how do you babyproof against that! Here's a picture on his second favorite (and much softer) pull up point - the living room couch.

Blessings to you all - especially the mothers!

Ha! I can totally feel your pain. Sully is our little mountain goat. His new favorite, in conjunction with his old favorite of scaling any table, is climbing up and over the end of the couch... over and over and over again.

As for the kitchen cabinets... and I know it will mess with your "Chi", but you might just have to remove the door pulls until this phase passes. And it will pass. Eventually. Chin up! Soon he will be onto something new.

And teeth... I know why babies get them very young. Then they don't remember the discomfort! Oragel, ibuprofen, those are your friends! Invite them to come visit often, expecially around naptime.

Can't wait to see him again soon!
