We're HOME!

We finally made it late Monday night...HOME! It is so wonderful to be here as a family. We had an unexpected little problem with our modem (it went out while we were gone). So, we just got another one overnighted to us and received it this morning. Sorry to keep everyone waiting!
Yesterday, Annabelle had her first pediatrician appointment. She checked out great and had gained up to 8lb 5 oz. She goes to the pediatric cardiologist tomorrow where they will keep checking her heart function with echos until time for her next surgery. She already has her heart catherization scheduled for May 7th.
Anyways, back to the fun stuff! The four of us had quite a night Monday adjusting to everything. My aunt had prepared the best dinner for us that was here when we got home...homecooking never tasted so good! Wyatt passed out on our bed so we just left him there and snuggled all night. Annabelle was close by in the bassinet. You can tell she loves being home, too. She watches Wyatt constantly and is so mesmerized by him. Scott and I think he definitely has "the touch" with her.
Once Scott gets home from work, I will get his help on posting some pictures of all of us at home!

We've been praying for this day. Your family was prayed for today in the prayer room and it is evident that God has his arms around you.
