Hello Everyone! It's me Princess Carrington and I am at home. Mommy and my biggest sister Madelaine took me home just in time for Easter. Can I just tell you how happy I am to be at home?! The day I left all of my special friends on 5th floor north at Cook Children's Hospital they had special presents for me and were giving me lots of well wishes and hugs. I love them so much!
Thank you to everyone who prayed for me while I was getting all better. Mommy would read me all the comments that you all left on the blog as well as the prayers that were left by all of my friends who came to stay with me at night. In my whole life I have never known what it meant to be important nor what it felt like to be loved but all that changed the day my mommy and daddy came to get me and bring me home. So many of you I may not meet this side of heaven but I am so loved and that was the medicine I needed. The medicine God knew I needed. Mommy has told me just how very special I am and that God has a special purpose for me in this life. Thank you for loving me, praying for me, sending me special notes and even for all the wonderful presents! This was a special time for my Mommy and I to just get to know each other and now I don't really like her to be very far away from me:)
Since I have been home things sure have been busy and noisy! You see I have 6 siblings at home so there is always something going on. Mommy tried to put me in the pack 'n play in her and Daddy's room but I reminded her that I like to sleep in the swing thank you very much!! We did not go to church for Easter as Mommy and Daddy want me to heal a bit more before going to meet everyone but the Easter bunny came to our house:) He left me a cute basker with a bunny and some baby food for the day I get to try eating it. One day it was breezy outside and Mommy let me sit in my bouncy seat and let the wind blow through my hair. WOW! I sure do love the feel of the wind through my hair and the sunshine on my face. Where has this awesome creation of God's been all my life?! So now each day Mommy and I walk outside together for a quick moment so I can see the flowers and trees and hear the birds. Did I tell you my Mommy was so nervous about me coming home she had to mow the lawn and plant flowers so everything would be just right when I came home? Well, don't tell her but all I really wanted was to sleep next to her and drift off to sleep all to my Daddy snoring. I am eating real good with my Gbutton and starting to sleep better so I can grow. Today I met my pediatrician, Dr Tomberlin, and I just love her! She is going to take great care of me just like she does my siblings. I now weigh a whole 14lbs and 11 oz. and I am 30 inches long. Yea, I am growing! Oh, my big sister Reagan, well she has decided that she is my personal bodyguard and does not let anyone come near me. She likes to brush my pretty hair that is just growing and growing and she holds toys for me to see. Even Ethan asks me a lot of questions. I wonder if he understands my answers? Guess who I have wrapped around my tiny little fingers? I will give you a hint...he is my hero and has a heart as big as a giant. It's my Daddy! But, shhhhhh don't tell him I know I have him wrapped around like that even though he is the only one who can get me to smile as big as Texas when he carries me around in his big, safe arms. I love my family and am so very thankful God took care of me until they could come get me. Even though I am home safe and sound with my family please do not stop praying for my friends who are still waiting for their Mommy and Daddy to come get them. Prayers are so powerful, I know, so keep praying because God hears you! I love you all!!
I just love eating and sleeping in my swing at home. My brothers and sisters sure did wear me out with all of their excitement when I came home.
Look how fun this thing is! I sure am having fun sitting upright and playing.
