LeAnne came home after two days away around 1:00 yesterday. She was perfectly fine until around 7:30 when we ate dinner. She started feeling sick to her stomach, nauseous, and in pain. She started actually losing fluids from both ends around 8 or 9 and it just kept happening. When the contractions set in at about 11:00, she asked to go to the hospital. We … Continue reading ER TRIP #2

As cliché as it may sound, most of the … Continue reading Eternal Family ❤
LeAnne has been here with us for a week officially tomorrow. The first two days were an adjustment for everyone, as expected. Don’t get me wrong; there wasn’t any drama—just everyone settling in and some uneasiness at first. As of day three, it was lovely. We truly love having her here and when we say she is family to us, we mean it. We … Continue reading Update – Week One!
