My Cover has been blown and Easton's Update

I recently found out that I have a LURKER...
One who is very near and dear to my heart. One who knows me on a very personal level. 
I posted before I moved to my new URL that I blog anonymously and I gave my reasons behind it here.
Well, I've been found out. So I guess I'm no longer anonymous among family.
My youngest daughter has been reading my blog.  I don't mind really. I think it is sweet. I don't know if she has even read articles from CORN before but the thing that captured her attention the most were my posts about Easton. 

You see he is her youngest dear son.  She said she has read my posts and all of the comments that were received wishing him well and how all of you have been so diligently praying for him. 
She would like you all to know that those prayers have been greatly appreciated--- and that brings me to the update portion of this post... 
I guess I never mentioned Easton's final surgery. 
He had it on October 1,2010... I know!  how could I forget to tell you all such wonderful news?  

He did wonderfully well and was only in the hospital about 3 days with NO ventilator. He was quite the little trooper. Since coming home he has caught up to his weight and size for his age. There appear to be no gaps in his development. He is growing so quickly now and is healthy as an OX! 

We are grateful to God for this baby and for his health. 
Since  before he was born we have seen the full spectrum of Gastroschisis -- the good and the bad. 
We've met parents who haven't been as fortunate to get to  raise their babies. But God means those things for His good. Even when we don't understand we can say...
Praise God for all things! 

get a good look; because you know how I hate to show pictures of our kiddos on the internet.  So as he continues to grow-- you may catch a glimpse of him from time to time from the corner of the lens or a sneak peak as he is  running away from the camera, or swinging from a tree in the yard...but you'll just have to take my word for it when I tell you he is growing and beautiful! 

God bless you today 
Thanks for reading...

and from all of us in our family including his mommy--
Thanks for all your prayers!

Wow was I lucky to log on when I did! I get to be the first to say "Easton you are one beautiful little boy to behold". So glad he is doing well and if he's doing well then so is the rest of the family. Thanks for the update! Sweetness, total sweetness. Ann

So glad the baby is doing well. I had been blogging for over a year before my family found out. I still have not told my friends. I have never had a giveaway that makes you follow ect and can not believe that I have so many faithful followers that are interested in what I have to say.. lol Thank you !!!!

He is a doll baby, so glad you shared this...I have a cousin who faithfully reads my blog. She doesn't live really close, so it has brought us closer and we've realized we have a lot more in common on our hobbies.

He had a fight there are the beginning, didn't he? Lots of prayers and lot and healing from our Holy Father brought him through it and look what an absolute doll he is. He'll be ready to go camping in no time at all.
