We decided to create a blog so we could share with family and friends about "our journey". Our son Noah is 4 years old and he is the constant light in our world. He was born with a rare genetic disorder called Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome.. Life has not always been easy but Noah has taught us how to be courageous. We are so proud of his accomplishments the past four years. He is beautiful, funny, courageous and strong. We feel so blessed God has chosen us to raise Noah.. We also hope that new parents receiving an RTS diagnosis will find comfort in our words. Nicholas is the perfect addition to our family. God has once again blessed us with a amazing, beautiful little boy. We are so comforted knowing that Noah now has a little brother. Life is beautiful having these two angels in our world.

Update on Sonogram Today
Thank you God. Everything turned out to be great as far as the sonogram and echo goes. Noah and Tom were both with me during the whole thing. The echo took about 30 minutes and they said everything appeared to be normal (no further testing was recommended). Then they did the ultrasound and the tech actually said the baby measured perfectly. The baby is of average size and not too small. This all sounded so unreal as I was laying there. I started bawling after it was all said and done. Partly because of relief but another part of me is still mourning what we went through during our pregnancy with Noah. Sometimes I think I am totally over all grieving feelings and then I realize I still have a ways to go. Being pregnant again has brought back a lot of feelings that I have buried in a far away place. The weird part is that I feel guilt for being so relieved. Does that sound strange? Basically because I don't want to ever compare the two pregnancies . I don't want my birth or pregnancy with Noah to be any less special to anyone. Even though I went through hell I wouldn't change my sweet boy for the world. This pregnancy is not better just different. I love you all for praying for me. Thank you.
