A weekend in pictures!



Well, we had a fun & relaxing weekend around here! Vaeh's roseola rash cleared up, as did the 'racoon eyes.' She's even becoming more normal in the eating category... like not wanting to eat anything! Oh well, as with all kids, its in her time not mine!

The girls really had a nice weekend, especially since Daddy didn't have to leave for work until late tonight. Vaeh is so funny & she always brings a smile to Daddy's face first thing in the morning. Right after she wakes up before she even sits up, the first thing out of her mouth is "Daddy!" This is usually followed by "Mawmaw," to which my answer is that they're both at work. After this morning ritual, we can procede with our day!

My girls are getting so big, too fast! Its so hard to believe that Vaeh will be 2 in a month, & that my first born is starting pre-K in another week! Where does the time go?!

Here again, I'm asking that you all continue to remember Elaina in your prayers. She was set for a discharge HOME on Monday, and today spiked a pretty high temp (104!). So, of course the discharge plans are again on hold for this poor little one. Hollie, just don't tell Elaina that you're taking her home & maybe she'll cooperate! Thanks again to all who check in on us & for keeping all these precious kiddos in your prayers!

I'm so happy that the rashes have cleared and that Vaeh seems to be feeling better. What a little pumpkin! She's so adorable. Thanks for sharing the pics. I'm glad you had such a nice weekend and that Daddy got a little extra time with you. Have a good Monday! Hugs to you guys...xoxoxo

p.s. Thanks for the tenosynovitis info!!

They are getting so big...and I still can't believe that the canula stays on her face without stickers...Isaac would have it pulled off in a second!
They are so precious...have fun today!!!
love,

So happy to hear Vaeh is feeling better. She is such a little cutie!! I agree with Kathy-I can't believe she keeps the cannulas on her face without stickers!!!

Colin will be 2 soon as well. I can't believe it either!!

Love,
Melanie & Colin

It's crazy how fast kids grow. Seems like just yesterday I was holding my baby Ben in my arms and he starts Kindergarten on Monday! Seems unreal... Elaina's temp has been down for 24 hours now, so fingers are crossed! I actually took pictures of her crib and mobile and took them to her in the hospital. I said "Do you remember these? They're waiting for you! Your teddy bear is so lonely without you!" She just raised her eyebrow (one eye) and gave me a look. Who knows if it made an impact, but I thought maybe if I could remind her what home was she'd decide that she really wants to be there!!! :)
Thanks so much for all your love and prayers! You're such an amazing friend!
Love,
Hollie, Ben and Elaina
