Today the steri-strips on Ava's incision were removed. It looks good, a little part of it towards the top is not totally closed but it will heal. The nurses just have to keep it clean. She looks more and more like a baby each day. I know that might sound weird, but the more she gets rid of, the more I can look at her and see a sweet little baby. Not that I didn't think she was a sweet baby before, but everything that she was hooked up to makes you lose some of the focus on her just being a baby.
I am so thankful for the strength my babies were blessed with. I have learned so much and grown tremendously as a person just from knowing these two miracles. Looking back I would not imagine myself taking on this type of lifestyle and being, what I consider, successful. I am proud of Nate and I as parents. We could have run away, but that NEVER crossed our minds. We were faced with a "challenge" and stepped up to the plate. (Sorry if you think I am tooting my own horn.) I am happy that God trusted us enough with these two lives, with these two loves. He saw in us what I never would have and opened our eyes to it. I will admit, I sometimes doubt myself, doubt us as parents...but then I see Kaden's smile and all that he has overcome and then some...and then there is Ava's expressive eyes and known determination and I know that we have done something right!!!
