The craziness has continued for our family. Calleigh is still in the hospital BUT she will be COMING HOME TOMORROW!!! We are so thrilled.
She also PASSED her newborn hearing screening. I am so excited about her passing the screening. I know we could have handled it if we needed to but GOOD GOD, can we just catch a break! This poor little girl has had enough between her belly and her lip she has had her share so I am just relieved her hearing is fine.
The boys continue to be your typical three year olds. We have awesome days and then every once in a while is a day from hell. (like yesterday) They have been through a lot this past month with Calleigh in the hospital. Lots of changes to their normal routine. Lots of less time with Mommy while I have been at the hospital. I have to cut them a break. I am sure they can tell we are under a lot of stress.
On to some cute stuff.......
I am driving Cormac home from school the other day. He was by himself in the truck. He says "Mommy?" I respond "yes, Cormac?" Know what he says next???? He says "Mommy, you make my heart super happy" I look in the rearview mirror and he is making a heart shape with his hands. (Insert flowing tears here....) I swear it was the sweetest thing I ever heard. I tried to tell Frank about it but cried again just retelling the story.
We took the boys to see Calleigh again on the fourth of July. THe nurse was kind enough to dress her in her specail holiday dress that was kindly given to us by Nadine. They just loved seeing her again.
The boys are still not allowed in by her so they get to look through the window. Here's is one of our first family portraits (with a window between us :)
Miss Calleigh Catherine. The tube was how she was eating until she mastered the bottle.
We went to the fireworks after our visit. They were not so thrilled with them. NOt scared but not over joyed either. I popped Cormac's implants off and he liked the firworks much better. (guess that's one advantage he has. I couldn't turn off Ciaran or Colin's ears!!)
Hopefully, i will have time to update once Calleigh is home tomorrow. I know i will have some better pictures once she is home with us.
