Happy Easter

Although Waverly was too sick to go to church today and to dinner with the rest of the family, I still made her dress up for Easter. We enjoyed family time and remembering our risen Lord, and rejoice that with His resurrection we have hope of new life in Him!

Waverly got a much-needed haircut a couple weeks ago. Thanks so much to the wonderful Sherry, who has taken care of our family's hair needs for years now (and even longer-she's cut Johnny's hair since he was a child!). She holds a special place in our heart, as she's given each of our children their first haircuts as well. Thanks Sherry for helping make our girl's hair fabulous! 

 The finished product-she has some sweet natural curls that are just so cute! The older two have no curl whatsoever, so it's sweet that she is unique in that way!
 This was before-long (and stringy!). It was fine for about 3 minutes after her bath, but then after laying on it, it would get super matted and tangled. Having it shorter makes it much more manageable now!
 Another before pic-with curls.

Sick again

It seems that my last post a few days ago is no longer relevant as Waverly is sick yet again. She started coughing constantly yesterday evening, to the point of throwing up, and coughed all through the night. She required extra oxygen and was on bipap for a while as well. She threw up again this morning and other than waking up to cough and have seizures she's been resting. It breaks my heart to see her like this yet again.

A Real Conversation

K (6 years old): "You should stay home with Waverly tomorrow cuz you know all that medical stuff."
Me: "But daddy knows how to take care of her too."
K: "Yeah, but he forgets to go to CVS."

Christmas picture dump

These pictures are only almost 3 months late, but still cuter than ever. Enjoy! 

A month

Wow, it's been a month since the last post. We are just doing "normal" life here: doctor's appointments, breathing treatments, snuggling, enjoying sunshine, soaking in every day and every minute. I have had many thoughts and much desire to write, but by the end of the day, my thoughts blend together and just can't seem to be formed into a coherent, communicable thought. So, for now, this is just me, checking in to say we are still here, we are still thankful.
