17 Months, 17 Days

Ella is the exact same age today that Amelia was when she had her hand surgery. I can't imagine having to spend the night at Scottish Rite tonight. I'm so thankful we will all be in our own beds. There are days when I wonder if I will "forget" about the surgery. I don't think about it every day, but I would probably say I think about it every few days. Of course I wouldn't change one thing about Amelia. She's my mini-me. I love the connections we've made with people through this and the connections we hope to make with others in the future. But tonight I'm thankful we were able to fellowship with our friends from our church's small group and then come home and put our babies to bed. At home. In their pjs and not a hospital gown. And then just chill and watch tv.

1 Talk to Me:


Hi there. Someone on my April 2010 board says she's friends with you and pointed me in your direction. My son has hypoplastic thumbs on both hands and some radial dysplasia on his right hand. He has his first surgery for his left hand (less severe, they can save the thumb) on Tuesday and in a few months will have the pollicization of his right thumb done. I'd LOVE to talk to you if you are willing! I've had such a hard time finding people who have gone through this and, while I don't wish for you to have to relive it in any way, I'd still really appreciate any thoughts you have. Please feel free to send me an email at if you get some time! Thanks so much!! Your family is beautiful! Such perfect little girls! :)
