On the Lighter side of things... this was taken the day before Ethan's accident. Being the only boy besides dad reaps great rewards of love from the girls.
Ethan's new trick: he thinks that by holding his two bandaged arms over his eyes the nurses wont be able to find him. his other trick consists of him shutting his eyes and pretending to sleep; if he is sleeping the nurses are less likely to bug him... so he thinks.
We have been feeding Ethan water through these little baby bottles. We just cut the hole in the nipple big enough for the straw to fit through. He finally figured out how to hold the bottle without the proper use of his hands.
Ethan has been Daddy's boy the past two days. He wont let anybody hold him except dad. They sit in the lazyboy chair all day and sleep there all night. His new stuff animal puppy came at the perfect time (after a long rough night), since then nobody can touch the puppy, not even mom.
