NICU Cribs

Those of you who are not as familiar with the "NICU" world may not find this quite as funny as the rest of us... but this one had to be shared!

If at first you don't succeed...

Perseverance... it's enough to make you sick sometimes!

Gettin' beat up by a 1 year old!

So yesterday Ella and I went over to visit Betsy and Noura before they leave for a mission trip in Africa for 5 months! I will miss them terribly... but I'm not so sure that Ella feels the same way. When we left their house, she asked that we not hang around that tough bully Noura anymore... I had a talk with her about growing thicker skin, and about learning to love the unloveable... To the average joe... Noura is ANYTHING but unloveable... but to Ella... well... you'll understand her feelings when you see the video below.

(Don't miss the post below with videos of Ella and her Great-Grandparents... they were much nicer to her!)

Generation to Generation

Last weekend Ella had a little visit with her Great-Grandparents... we captured some really sweet videos and photos of them all. It's pretty wonderful to see loved ones who have walked this earth for many years loving on a little one who is just beginning it all. My Grandfather will be 90 in a few weeks... we look forward to as many moments like these for Ella with her only living Great-Grandparents as the Lord allows.

2 Years Ago Today....

(P.S. Normally I would give credit to the photographer who took these pictures... but he has since had his license removed along with the rights to these photos. He currently owes over $100,000 to over 30 couples who he failed to provide photos and albums to (us included)... so since I really can't recommend his services to any of you... I figure I won't bother linking you all to Mr. Copeland's website. :) Despite not receiving all that we payed for, we are incredibly thankful to at least have the photos he took on CD. Some couples have absolutely nothing to this day... and I can't imagine how devastating that must be. Thank goodness we have the photographed memories of that awesome day!)
