23 Days

It has been 23 days since Ember's transplant and thinks are going really well. While we did have one small bump in the road right away, things have been good since then. She has been doing really well at home. She does have her days of being a fussy baby, but nowhere near how she was when we first came home. She has started to babble again. Next to smiles, this is the greatest thing ever! She has not really been trying to roll over yet, but I know she will get there. It was her only mode of transportation so I am sure she will figure it out again.

This past weekend we had the opportunity to be honored guests at the first annual Children's Hospital Holiday Festival. They had 30 honorary trees that volunteers decorated for patients of Children's Hospital and then donated to them. Ember's tree is perfect for her! It is decorated in all pink and even has a princess plaque on it! The lady who decorated it even made the tree skirt with a pink fuzzy border and her name on it! We are so grateful to have had this opportunity! It was nice to get to see some of the other tree's as well.

Again, I am very thankful to Ember's Angel. You are constantly in our thoughts! I had always known that I was going to get a mommy tattoo (yes, I'm one of "those" people. *gasp*!), but it has changed slightly. I am going to get a mommy tattoo and a tattoo for Ember's Angel. I know that it may seem silly to most, but it's my way of always saying than you. Even when Ember grows up and moves on. It's something that will mean a lot to me for the rest of my life and hers. So, as soon as I save up enough money they will be added to me! :)

For now, we will enjoy our Christmas and be thankful for every moment we have with her. She truly is our fairy tale.

What a beautiful tree! We're getting back from a whirlwind tour and I was just checking in on Ember. I'm glad she's coming around and starting to feel better.
