Easter 2007

Yesterday Isaac, Daddy, Granny and Mommy went to an Easter Egg Hunt at the church. This was his second year attending the church Easter Egg Hunt, and what a difference a year makes! It was nice and sunny last year...Daddy even wore shorts! But this year, it was so cold that they decided to have the 2 year olds and younger stay inside and hunt eggs in the sanctuary. It was really fun to watch. We had been prepping Isaac for a few days by showing him that he needed to pick up the eggs and put them in his basket however, he knew that there was candy inside the eggs, so he would just pick up one and open it and eat the candy. He laid down on the floor in the middle of a bunch of eggs and just smiled. By the end of the hunt, he started picking up eggs and putting them in his basket. Overall, he had a great time.

Today we went to church and Isaac wore the outfit that Great Grandma Dory sent for his 2nd Birthday. He looks like such a little man in it! Later we went to Gramps and Grannys house and ate Easter dinner with them and Uncle Mike and Aunt Lydia. The Easter Bunny got Isaac lots of candy, a few Easter toys and even a little money for his savings account.

The pictures are of Isaac in a home made poncho from Great Grandma Dory, and Isaac in his "Easter Best," also compliments of Great Grandma Dory.

How is that he just gets cuter and cuter? I can't help but smile ear to ear looking at his pictures! What a happy little guy!

We need more pics of Isaac!
I think he is the cutest little boy, he should be entered in a contest someday.

Also Shiloh, just out of curiousity, I wonder what you and your husband think about a bilateral someday?

I've posted about it, but ithas been awhile and I am always revisiting the idea. Some interesting posts have come up recently on the circle about it. Vestibular issues going away, etc.

Take care!

HI Shiloh!

I am still in Cincinnati, we had a mapping session yesterday and decided to stay the night. Luckily, one of my longtime close friends lives here and she and her husband always take great care of us. If you read Ethan's blog today you can see what ended up happening yesterday. Not great news actually.

But on the topic of bilaterals, I hear what you are saying and I really respect that point of view. I'm on the fence. But our surgeon mentioned yesterday that he would be willing to do another implant in a few months if Ethan's PT says that his balance issues have improved enough.

We'll see.

In the meantime, take care of yourself and keep those feet up. I can't wait to "meet" Noah!
