The new normal!

Pin It

 Double the sweetness

Double the fun

We've doubled our treasures

In more ways than one!!!!











It has been 18 months since this little button of love turned our family upside down and around and around! 10 Heart Catheterizations, 5 Open Heart Surgeries, 1 Diaphragm Plication, 1 major unexpected Brain Surgery, 4 days of ECMO and 35 hours of Bypass later and look at her now!!!!! God is in control is he not?? He could have and still could, take his baby girl back home at any time. But he has oh so graciously given us this most precious gift, here and now! We are full of new understanding of the blessings we have a chance to experience here on this earth. We are so blessed by both our trials and our good times! These 18 months have taught us that we never were, still are not, and never will be, The Boss! But God is, and He is so GOOD!

I was thinking last night of Ivy and everything she has been through. Love these new pictures of miss sassy pants. She is a rascal.
