We are home!  I swear my house looks completely rearranged I've been gone for what seems like an eternity!  The kids are PUMPED about baby sister!  My mom has pictures of Ollie in her gear before we left St. Louis here.

I'd steal her pictures since my camera is charging, but since she did the work already - I'll just steal her thunder instead.  So head over there and check out my girl.  Best Valentine gift ever!!

She's home, but on a Bili box.  She's on it full-time until the Dr. says otherwise.  It's hard to watch her all day, when all you want to do is sit in a recliner and cuddle...but the Dr. knows best so I'll have to be patient.

Now that our girlie is home, Jade and I are thinking craps - now we have to get her to the goal weight of 11 pounds & prepare her and ourselves for open heart surgery - ugh.  I fear that 2011 is the year that I officially start growing gray hairs & that Jade's few on his temples expand to many many more!  Thank the good good lord for a stylist for a sister - Maggie prepare the color!  Keep praying - we need this girl to keep chubbing up!  We have some time, but the more prayers the better!

PS - my puffy face is shrinking!  Woot I hope to get my chin back soon.  Now if only my feet would deflate from the fifty IVs I had I'll have shoes again - I hope!


  1. So happy you are home with your precious little bundle. She really is cute.

    My son had bad jaundice (billi-not sure of the american name). I hated the wait. Really praying she heals up quickly so you can keep her close to you.

    Will continue praying for the rest, especially for widom and peace for you.

  2. I responded to your e-mail lastnight - check your spam filter (where I often end up!) if it didn't come through. :-) Glad you're home!

  3. yep, still perfect. that little one is blessed.

  4. woo hoo!! inst it a wonderful feeling to just be home??? mayson had to spend an extra day in the nicu and i hated it. such a relief to be home and just be able to be a family again. Ollie is precious.. she is going to rock your world in a GOOD way!!!!

  5. So glad to see that she is home. She is adorable and I'm heading over to your mom's so I can see some more pix.

  6. oh i just want to eat her up! praying that jaundice gets outta here so you can hold that little love muffin ;)

  9. Yeah! So thankful you are the poop prayers and onto the chubby wubby prayer wagon! Seriously...enjoy, she is just so precious! Hope she gets out of the billi blankie soon!

  10. Ollie looks beautiful in her fancy wool cap. I will head over to your mom's to see the latest pictures. I have some extra pounds I can spare for Miss Ollie - Fedex or UPS, which is your preference? She will gain that weight easily, I think. Keeping you all in my thoughts. Ann {{Ollie}} {{Chubster}}

  11. Annie, I will keep baby Ollie Faith in my prayers.. and you, Jade and family too! It is so good that you all are home now! Ollie is a little cutie!! I love the pictures you shared of Aubrie and Everett holding their baby sister.. Adorable! I thought that the picture of Jade sleeping on the couch was cute too! Men sometimes don't realize how hard it really is to be a Mom, and especially to be a Mom to a tiny, new little baby! I think it's great that Aubrie and Everett are big helpers to you! Means a whole bunch, that's for sure! Take care Annie, and Ollie is a lil sweetheart, as well as Aubrie and Everett are too!♥♥♥



Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
