In other news, I took Ethan to the pediatrician on Tuesday for his 4 month check up. My little chunk weighs 17 lbs. 12 oz!!! That puts him in the 97%ile for weight!!!!!!!!!!! He is about 3 1/2 lbs. heavier than Abby was at 4 months, but sadly, he is about a 1/2 in. SHORTER!!! The Dr. said that we could begin solid foods, and Ethan is enjoying rice cereal twice a day now! :)

If all you saw in the top picture was a cute, happy baby, LOOK CLOSER!!!!
What does it say about me that the first thing I did when I saw what happened was to run and grab my camera?!? I figured the poop wasn't going anywhere, and I have to document this for later for when Ethan brings his first girlfriend home! :)
For the record, Greg does not endorse this post nor does he support the use of the pictures.

And here are a couple pictures of the two cakes I made, with the help of Brian & Vanessa (it was a group effort!). The first was supposed to be a sandcastle, but it didn't work out so well. The second is a sand pail cake and it looked pretty cute!
At the pediatrician on Wednesday, Abby weighed 27 lbs. and she is 33 1/4 in. tall. I am just in awe of how much she has changed in the past two years. From this:

But here it is...our first attempt at cloth diapers. Doesn't it look like Ethan just loves his Bum Genius 3.0's?? :)

Now that I am a happy, busy mother of two, my every thought isn't consumed with my infertility. But it is still very much a part of who I am, and it is the "where I came from" that has contributed to the "where I am now" and "where I am going." I never wanted the burden of infertility, but because of it, I learned a lot about my inner strength, the strength of my marriage, and the strength of my faith.
Melissa is the author of not only the book, but a brilliant and funny blog about infertility and mothering. It is one of the first blogs I stumbled across after our infertility diagnosis, and her blog really gave me the support I needed during a tough time. I will add a few of my favorite infertility blogs to my sidebar in case anyone is ever interested in checking them out. There is also a link to more info about Melissa's book in my sidebar...so check it out!

Last weekend was Ethan's first trip up to Dallas. It was strange driving into town, remembering that the last time we made that trip was before Christmas, when we were just a family of three. For some reason, Dallas felt different to me this time. Maybe because no matter where I've lived, for me, coming to Dallas has always felt like coming home. But now, for Ethan, Houston is the only home he has known. It will always be his birthplace. I wonder where "coming home" will be to my children as they get older.

And, this year...
What a difference a year makes!! Looking back at the pictures of us at the St. Patrick's Day parade last year, I can't believe that one year ago today was Abby's 1st St. Patty's Day!!! She was 10 months old, no teeth, and couldn't walk yet. And now look at her! Exactly one year ago today was the iui that resulted in my ectopic pregnancy, and today I am holding a handsome baby boy. It is amazing how much can happen in one year, and just how fast time flies by! We are feeling especially "lucky" this year!
In other randomness, I walked by Ethan in his swing earlier to find that Abby had given her sleeping brother one of her baby doll's pacifiers. Too cute!
