A pose in front of the huge AWESOME banner that my girls made for me with Aunt Angie.
Oh how this cheered me up whenever I looked at it from my bed....
Where I was...
For 17 DAYS!
Another shot of the hospital bound belly and body.
And Small (ha!)
(26 Days before Gracie arrived)
No make-up for 17 days.
No hair dryer for 17 days.
Just a toothbrush, books, magazines, DVDs and Lion's Choice Orange Freeze (thanks Dad!)
It was ALL worth it.
Every minute in that bed was worth the health of little Gracie.
The crazy hair was SO Sophie and we still can't imagine her with long hair.
A closer shot of the cute buds.
Here it is this morning!
Growing some PERFECTLY cute leaves.
I am so thankful for my husband and three healthy little girls.
They have taught me so much about life and how to be THANKFUL for what I do have.
Not to dwell on what I don't.
My family is all I need.
(And maybe a few trees to watch as they grow their leaves.)
