Boys with cell phone and laptopI can remember how cool I thought I was when I got my 1st cellular phone. It was the mid-to-late-90's and I was part of a small minority of high school kids with a cell phone. There were no texting functions. And I couldn't call many of my friends on it, because they didn't have one. But I was definitely cool.

During Heart Month in February, most people think of adults and heart disease. Too few realize that some 32,000 babies per year are born with congenital heart defects. In fact, it is the #1 birth defect, by far. Some of those defects are so major — such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) — that babies have to undergo open heart surgery as newborns, followed by at least 2 other surgeries as they grow.

My husband and I were surprised last November when the doctors found a 2nd heartbeat at my 6-week ultrasound. At the time we had an 18-month old little boy so the thought of doing what we did with him twice seemed like an impossibility.
