Richard was able to take him to church last night for Puggles...again trying to regain that normalcy. Richard then went and spoke to our church family about our new situation. I am in awe of his strength. He has continually repeated our story to numerous family members and close friends. I still have a hard time explaining any of this aloud, but he does it beautifully.
Since being home Ellie has finally started to play with some of those birthday presents, she never got to touch. Its also made me realize we never really cleaned up anything from Ellie's party...besides the food. Her decorations are still up in the basement and some of her presents are still in boxes. I find birthday cards every once in a while that have never been opened. The general "unorganization" of my house is driving me a tad bananas today....don't let that fool you it's not usually that clean or organized but I am 34 weeks prego and I'm pretty sure nesting is getting the best of me! We have to consolidate two kids into one room and get a baby's room ready, not a huge task in reality, but it feels like a mountain at the moment.
Yeah for art time with Mrs. Kelly!
Our new hair do...pre hair washing! "Tails"...which she loves to twirl and a hair bow!
A green snowman!
So her brother....lining everything up!
We got to wash her hair today!!! She definitely did not enjoy the bath like she normally does, but who can blame her, Daddy ended up throwing on a bathing suit and hoping in with her to help give her support. Sitting up on her own without a chair is still a little scary for her. We did the best we could since we aren't allowed to scrub the top of her head yet. But at least it's clean and we have the hair bow in almost the right place now!
I caught myself talking about tomorrow, today....Richard stopped me, "that's tomorrow Carly". Thank you Lord for giving me this man to love. I couldn't imagine embarking on this journey with anyone else.
