The End Has Come

I can't believe that I have been off of work for seven weeks! In that time, we have traveled half way around the world, added a tiny, person to the family, and started having tea parties! Boy has life around here changed!

One thing that hasn't changed is how much time we spend outside! Like her brother, this girl

loves to be outside! It's ashame that it's cold today! Thankfully it will warm back up this weekend so that she can chase this guy...

and of course...this guy (who also happens to be the love of her life)! People keep asking me how are the boys with her and does she like them. Well, they think she hung the moon and will do anything for her!

She, on the other hand, tolerates Kaden (unless he has food) and thinks Brady is the greatest thing in the world! However, she doesn't like either one of them in the morning!

One thing she does like is riding in the dump truck! It cracks me up because I used to do the same thing when I was little!

She also loves to chase the boys down the street! I hope this isn't a sign of the future! Thankfully, we live in a cove so playing in the street is ok!

Yesterday, we went for her one week post op check up! She left there all smiles! She got the arm restraints off and the doctor said that she's doing great! She can eat anything she wants and can drink out of a sippy cup. Her future holds a few more surgeries but he is very optimistic about that! He said that her mouth had a spot that he couldn't get closed this time so he put in a bonding agent that would fill in wit scar tissue. It's pulled apart a little but it's still closed. He will probably want to touch that up in a year or so. She will also need a bone graft when she's about 6 or 7 and possible need a touch up on her nose. It will all depend on how she grows! I have no doubt that God will repair what HE wants and will allow the doctor to do the rest!

So, what will I miss when I go back to work?

of course! What will I not miss?

You guessed it! BTW, she's smiling because we are watching Tangled! She brings me the remote for the DVD player...she knows the difference...and points to the tv and yells! Then she laughs every time the horse comes on! I hope she can survive the day at the sitter without her best friends from the movie!

I'll leave you today with a cool picture we took the other day outside! I love our five people family and thought it's only been this way a few seems like forever!
