{a weekend to catch up}

we spent  the first part of our weekend bustling about the house trying to get things in a bit of order because…


isaac could possibly possibly be coming home this week {!!!}


daniel spent a lot of saturday burrowed down in our crawlspace insulating our kitchen & breakfast nook {the floor was icy cold last winter} 

we've also been working towards getting my car fixed. we had a bit of a breakdown a few days ago in the parking deck of the hospital actually. smoke everywhere. {i did have a bit of a stress-fest for a few hours over it. i have to confess. but after i thought about it - it was kind of silly. theres so many other things that should be upsetting right now, so what is a bit of car trouble, really. so many other great things happened this past week, too, that i shouldn't really focus on the little bit of bad}


it really was the first time i think i've been at home for more than just sleeping in probably two weeks. & it was actually really nice to just putter around & organise things & mess around in the kitchen a bit.

so a lot is going on. we cannot WAIT to bring our little button home. i'm trying not to get my hopes up too terribly much, but it can hardly be helped.

isaac is doing so wonderfully. he's eating great & he's so much more alert now. & we had a big pow-wow with quite a few of our doctors that was really helpful & i also met a FA mom & her son friday afternoon that was SO encouraging.


thank you all, too, for the sweet birthday wishes. i was so spoiled this past week by my husband & sweet friends & a snuggly little baby. it couldn't have been a better week, i think :)

  12. Hey there girl! I can't even tell you how much of a roll model you are to me. I have been reading your blog often, and from everything you all have gone through, you are the toughest, bravest mommy I know! I am in tears while reading your updates, but you are so encouraging and uplifting through it all. In all things we should strive to be like Christ, and his strength shows through you and Daniel. Love you girl =)
