The Angel We Are All Praying For!!

One thing I have always been diligent about, is having professional (JC Penney) pictures done of my kids for all the milestones. I have been perfect about doing it with all 3 kids beginning at 6 weeks old, then 4 mos, 6 mos, 9 mos, 12 mos, 18 mos and then each year on their birthday after that. I was almost a month late in doing Ella's 2 year old pictures but thankfully did them a week before she was diagnosed. Boy am I glad that I did because can you imagine how much it would have bothered me to not be able to take her to get those taken for the next 6 months while she has to stay out of public!!! Anyway, I thought it would be nice to post some pics of her besides in the hospital to remind you of the Sweet Ella Grace that we all know and love (okay, maybe I am a little partial)!! I am hoping that these photos will help me on those days when I am sooooo weary from living in a hospital, to remember what we are fighting for!!

















Okay...I lied....here are a few from the last few days in the hospital. Here is one of her in her hospital gown right before they took her in to do her broviac line. I just thought she was so cute in her little "dress". It reminds me that I can't wait for her to walk so she can start wearing dresses again.




Here is Ella with Peanut's Mom, Sara, who came to visit us yesterday. I have never met Sara but I so enjoyed her visit. She was so kind to bring me some lunch and help me to pass the time by quickly. I look forward to our next visit!!


Ella practicing her new job as a fashion model for Baby Legs. Isn't she cute!!!


Ella's new play yard. I wanted her to be able to get down on the floor but didn't want her crawling all over the room so I went out and found this at Target. I think it will work perfectly!!
And thank you for the HUGE response about sending pictures for Ella's wall. I cannot wait to start receiving them!!!

I just want to scoop her up and give her the biggest hug ever! I love her "dress" =)

I had a package shipped to you - they said it could take up to 2 wks...but hopefully you will get it sooner.

Also, working on pics to send.

Hope you all are having a "good" day. Prayers are still coming!

OMG the pictures are adorable. Her smile is contagious and that last one of her belly put a really big smile on my face. She sure does make a great model for the baby legs. Good thinking on the play yard.

I got your address from Lacey and am planning to order some pics of Anne & Whitney to you to help cheer you guys up :) You will have to take a picture of your "picture wall" and post for us all to see... what a great idea to have everyone send pictures of all of ella's friends!!!
