I could’ve acted like nothing has happened and continued to post things related to Ethan especially because he is so cute and brings such joy to our lives but that is just not who I am. As many of you know I am a very open, loud and have a ‘what you see is what you get’ personality. I have never been one to sweep things under the rug and find it difficult to start now. Eric and I know that life is a rollercoaster and is filled with ups and downs. We have many ups in our lives and feel very fortunate that they out-weigh the downs. However I have always felt that you have to acknowledge the downs in order to truly appreciate the ups. I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful husband and son which help me get out of the bed each morning.
At a routine doctors appointment the doctor was unable to locate the baby’s heartbeat. After 3 ultrasounds and 2 doctors later it was labeled as a miscarriage. Being that I was already in my 2nd trimester it was recommended that I have surgery. My surgery was on Friday and I was home by noon. I am doing well and actually feel better than expected. Eric and I are just glad that it is over and happy that we can start to look toward the future instead of dwelling in the past. Of course, we had tons of support from our family and our friends that we truly appreciate. We are enjoying the precious moments we have with Ethan and know that there will be more memories to come with other siblings. We believe that everything happens for a reason and that only God knows what is best for us.

Outside right now it is a -4 and if you factor the wind chill it is -21. Basically, we are freezing our butts off and really don't want to leave the house. I feel bad because Ethan has been cooped up in the house for so long and we can't wait for spring to come so we can actually play outside and use up all that energy.
