Can't Sleep!

It's in the wee hours of the morning, but I'm in the hotel and I can't sleep, I don't have my stamps with me and I have to stay quiet in the dark! So why not blog!!! I don't have any eye candy to share, but I'm sure all of you understand with what we have going on. We did have a bit of good news today with our son, actually more than a bit. Ethan is starting a new drug tomorrow morning. This is definitely an answer to ours and so many others prayers. We spent the night here due to the weather and the fact that it saved us from 6 hours of driving time to head home and back. Ethan is doing great. He and my DSH are sound asleep right now. I should be too! Hopefully we'll be heading for home sometime tomorrow afternoon. St. Louis got another 4-5 inches of snow last night and the roads were pretty yucky. We are only staying a couple miles from the hospital, so we don't have far to commute in the morning!

I've been enjoying the sneek peeks from CHA. Looks like some more fun stuff this year! Yesterday I took Ethan to a movie for something fun to do. I took him to see Paul Blart, Mall Cop. I guess this is rated PG and looked pretty funny on the previews, but he got scared half way through so we left! Oh well, he really enjoyed the popcorn! I brought in some sodas for Ethan and me to have and I put his in my purse when we left half way through, not knowing what was in store with that. While walking down the mall, Ethan was trying to tell me something, but I couldn't hear him. I bent down and it sounded like he was peeing, well, he wasn't, but he thought I was peeing! To our amazement, neither of us were peeing, but the rootbeer cap wasn't all the way on and so I poured it all over the inside of my purse and onto the mall floor! What a mess! I cleaned up what I could and let someone know about our mess!

Ethan got some good deals on some button shirts as he calls them. He likes to wear button up collared shirts, except he is in the phase right now where he always wants to dress like Daddy! Pretty funny huh?? Well, I had 3 shirts picked out for him and asked Ethan if he liked them, he would then look at his Daddy and say "Daddy, do you have a shirt like that?" If Daddy said yes, then Ethan liked the shirt, if he said no then we didn't get it! How long is this phase going to last?? Ava didn't get left out. She got some cute things too and on sale! I got her 3 shirts at Baby Gap for under $15! My friend Heidi will be so proud!

I better get off of this thing and get a few more zzzz's. We have to be back at the hospital around 9:00 or so. We are praying that all goes well with Ethan's new meds tomorrow. I'm definitely ready to be home and Ethan is too. We miss our little Chicky. Ava and Ethan have a cold and are taking antibiotics, so Ava is a little more clingy than usual. She didn't like it when I told her on the phone that we weren't coming home last night. She'll be glad to see us tomorrow.

Hopefully I'll be back later in the week with a sample or two to share. I have the stuff cut to make the Birthday card holder by Lauren Meader. I used pink pirouette, baja breeze, and close to cocoa for my colors. I really like that combo together! Back to get some zzzzz's.....thanks for stopping by!

Hmm...that color combo sounds awesome! Hope you don't mind if I steal it :O)

Oh and congrats on the great find at Baby Gap! The majority of my daughter's wardrobe was Baby Gap when she was little. They have GREAT sales!! Now she won't even go into the store...teenagers :O)

Good to hear that you are returning home tomorrow. I pray the new meds work out for Ethan! You all are still in my prayers. Safe travels on your journey home to Ava ♥

I always enjoy reading your blog and Ethan's story has touched my heart. I pray for you all often and am so glad to hear that you did get some good news. Thanks for all the inspiration too. You are so talented and a true inspiration as an artist and mother.

My guy is 9 and still only wears what dad wears which is totally okay with me.
The way I think of it is I married a man that has great values and who I would not trade for anything (I know you did too) I would be proud of if our son grew up to be like him. Dressing like dad is just the first step in this process.
Thoughts, prayers and fingers crossed for Ethan!!!
