Home again, home again, jiggity jig

We brought Violet home from the hospital last night and it felt GREAT to have our family back again!! She is doing really well - just has a little cough occasionally.


And my life has quickly returned to the chaotic normal that it is. This morning I'm making granola in the kitchen, Violet starts to cry in the family room, Jack is begging me to hold him and yells "BIE - LET, be QUIEEEET!" and Avery is singing along to a movie she's watching.


Yes, this is my life and I love it (most of the time). Jack has turned into a comedian since we got home. A very funny and very naughty comedian. This morning he has already smashed a window in one of our French doors with a tool set that he got for Christmas from his aunt (thanks a lot Andrea!).

And then he yells at the top of his lungs "AW, MAN!!". His favorite phrase. Sometimes it is so hard for me to keep a straight face when I'm disciplining him. He's just a crack-up.


And of course Violet continues to charm us with her easy smiles! This was her last day at the hospital, smiling for Daddy...


Thank you again for all your support and kind words as we've gone through this experience with her. We are so incredibly thankful for the support we've received and that our family is together again!!

  2. Ummm...oops! Sorry. Maybe that toy should be put away for a while. I don't want to start getting bills in the mail for damages done while playing with tools.

  4. Glad she is home and healthy. I shared your story in my Sunday school class this week and used your story in relation to the previous weeks sermon where we think everything should be perfect at Christmas.This was probably not a perfect Christmas for you but now it is part of sweet Violets story! I hope this year is healthy and happy for your family.

  6. Praise JESUS! I rejoice with you as you have your family back together again and Violet is regaining her strength and health. What a whirlwind I'm sure but how neat to have this to look back on, not as a fun time, but a seriously obvious time of God's faithfulness, protection and provision for your sweet family. It must feel so good to be home!

  9. So thankful to hear that your family is back together again. I have been thinking about you alot the past week...lifting Violet to our Almighty God. I can't imagine the pain of seeing your baby so sick and with all the needles and tubes that seem to have to go with it... and not being able to hold her for so long had to be pure torture. God obviously didn't give me and my imagination the grace that I am sure that you experienced through this time :) Isn't the family of God an amazing blessing? Praying for continued healing for Violet and that the "readjusting" for your family would be a smooth transition.
    btw- I LOVE Olivia's sign :) Thanks so much!

  12. Oh wow, WHAT a past couple of weeks! My heart just goes out to you.... We "missed" Christmas too, due to sick children, but after reading your past few updates I feel like mine was minor in comparison! Bless your heart... So glad everyone is okay and that you're back home. Hopefully any more sickness will stay far away from you this winter!
