i haven't updated again for a while.  sorry to leave you all hanging.  i've been kind of busy though.  i've been playing candy land, and the sock monkey game, reading books, going for walks, and playing at the park.  i've been watching sisters with their secret smirks that speak a language only understood by them.  i've been snuggling littles and bigs at the same time, all day, everyday.
and at the end of the night, when they are both tucked in, i've been sitting on the porch with my husband.  sharing our day; laughing at things abigail has said or done, wondering at the blessing of two little girls, and sharing life.
yes.  we are home.  we got home monday evening around five.  i have intentionally neglected spending any time on the computer because i had much bigger and better things to be doing.
shilo is doing great.  and like jason and i assumed, we fell right back into life without much thought to it.  while we by no means love hospitals or doctors appointments, we are learning that God has created the two of us in a way where we seem to handle the craziness of life without feeling like it was a huge deal.
and i won't say this has been suggested, or that it hasn't, but in NO way, shape, nor form do we regret our second daughter.  we DO NOT feel like we got more than we bargained for.  we DO NOT feel like it was unfair.  she is our daughter.  we love her with a fierce love.  she got sick.  and when your child is sick you do whatever you are able to, in order to care for them.


  1. So happy you and Shilo are finally home!!! Glad to hear that you are indulging in some well deserved family time :)

  2. I am so glad you are all back together again (:

  3. Hug and love those girls up! They are both beautiful and strong!

  4. i just read this. yes. yes. you do whatever it takes to help your child.
