One week ago, today.
Our dear baby daughter, Ella has been with us for one week today. It is amazing, though, because it feels like she has been in our lives forever. I was having a really hard time getting out of bed today.....I just didn't want to face it. My wonderful husband comforted me and reminded me that we always feel better after we go and see Ella. Erik is a wonderful support and I could not have asked for anyone better than him to be my husband for the rest of my life. I am one lucky girl.
I got up and showered and headed to the hospital while my mom took care of our boys. She has been a rock for our boys, especially Elijah since he is a creature of routine. Erik and I headed to the hospital to be greeted by our gorgeous baby girl. There is something about being with her that is such a great comfort. To be able to sit in her quiet room with her, Erik, and our Creator has been such a blessing and a breath of fresh air lately. I just love talking with Erik over her bed, praying, and being still. Jesus is at work and I can feel it.
