42: Dear My Sweet Baby Boy Ethan Wyatt, We were surprised to find out that we were pregnant again so soon after your brother Ty we did not know exactly what to do. Months later, we found out that you were a baby boy. We were so ecstatic to have another lil boy!! From that moment on; we started thinking about your name, and how awesome it will be that your brother and you will be so close in age and how you can have bunk beds and will grow up little buddies. We would lie in bed at nights discussing names; I really wanted to call you Shawn Lee after your uncle that passed away and Lee is your Grandpa Ricky's middle name. After awhile of pondering we decided to toss out some more ideas. Daddy really liked Wyatt, so he could call you ‘Y’ for short. I had also picked ‘Ethan’. So we put our names together and choose Ethan Wyatt. On November 8, 2009 at 10:31 p.m. you graced our presence 5 weeks 2 days early. It was a total shock to us that you were not happy inside my tummy and the doctors were convinced you would be happier on the outside. When you where first born, you did not cry. Daddy and I were so scared that something was terribly wrong. After a few moments with the nurses you began to cry softly and that gave Daddy and me a huge sigh of relief. I remember looking over and trying to see you and telling Daddy, ‘Look at him, he is so beautiful! He has Jessie's dark hair.’ Daddy and I made a bet, whose hair color would you have Jessie's dark hair or Ty’s blonde hair. I won!! Although you had your sisters dark hair, you and your brother were twins.
43: You spent 9 days in the Lakeside Hospital NICU, with some challenges but you were a fighter and you overcame them like a ‘champ’! On November 17, 2009 I finally got the phone call that the doctors decided it was time for you to come home! I was so excited I just couldn't wait for you to come home so we could all be together. I had everything that I could ever ask for, a wonder husband and three beautiful kids. Our family was finally complete!!! On December 1, 2009, I just got done feeding you dinner and you had fallen asleep on my chest. I love that feeling and its such a great bonding moment. I let you sleep for a few minutes. Jessie and Ty were ready for bed too so, I went and placed you in your bouncer in mommy and daddies room. I walked across to Jessie's room and sat down to read her a book, and you let out this terrifying cry. I immediately knew something was wrong and I went and picked you up. Your lips and fingers were slightly purple. I took you down to daddy and asked him if your lips and fingers look purple to him as I thought I was just seeing things. He immediately said get you in the car seat and take you to the hospital. We got to the hospital, and I was terrified! I took you out of the car and ran in the emergency doors and the nurses immediately took you from me and attempted to stabilize you. They tried their hardest to help you breathe and keep you warm but unfortunately something was not right. At about 9:30pm on December 1, 2009 you my precious little angel past away. We said our good bye’s and baptized you so you can go and be in Gods arms forever. Family gathered around us and all prayed that you be safe and be with family and friends up in heaven until one day we will join you again. You will forever be in our hearts and memories. Love Always, Mommy
