This week has flown by! Tim and I have really enjoyed being home but now that all the hype is starting to wear off and we are getting back into the grind of things...we are finding ourselves swamped and exhausted! As we try to catch up on all the things we have missed with the girls schooling, Tim's classes, and all of Ethan's time consuming dressing changes, we are starting to wear thin. Ethan's head and arms are starting to tear in places and we are wondering if we should be making a trip up to Calgary early to have it looked at! Its hard to know if something looks normal or if it needs to be taken care of with certain bandages they gave us or just plain old poly-sporin. I worry so much that he will get an infection or tear badly in some places and we will be back to square one.

We have been so busy with Ethan and all the care that he requires that we almost forgot it was Tim's birthday. Tim has never been one to want much or anything for that matter and so he was happy to just spend a little time being with the kids and read all of their cute homemade cards. He is such an amazing father and husband and I am so blessed to have him in my life.

I figured I would post a picture of Ethan's head from about a week ago when everything looked pretty good. It still looks good but does have several tears all around the head. The outer layer you see will scab and peel and the physiotherapist will remove that part in Calgary...we just clean it!

one week ago!
Say cheese!! Ava loves the new camera she got from the Children's Hospital.
Auntie Lindsay came by for a visit and Ethan just adored her.
I don't know what got into him but he was just being so silly. He sure loved all of the attention!

Happy 32nd Birthday Tim!!!!
Tim couldn't even get up the stairs as the kids were so excited to have him home and see their decorations!
So much to see!!!
Today was nice and quiet as the kids just enjoyed painting and colouring (as long as Ethan didn't touch Hallie's picture).

Hallie loves to draw rainbows lately....each one is different and unique!
While Hallie and Ethan crafted, Ava was fast asleep in her bed having a much needed nap.
Now that Ethan is home there is nothing stoping him! It scares me though because I worry he will fall and hurt his head, so I follow him everywhere.
Ethan was trying hard to help me make dinner but was only making things a lot harder.
He didn't like it too much when I told him he couldn't help me anymore. But he did eventually get over it. Since the accident I have found I have a lot more patience with the kids, I try to enjoy every minute I have with them...even if its while they are throwing a tantrum!


  1. Love the picts.....poor little duda!!! Hang in there you guys.....we're still praying for ya! Love you!

  2. he is so adorable!! and so is your little family hope everything continues to get better and better.

  3. Kassie also throws a tantrum if she can't help me cook too. Oh, and we're moving into the building right next to you guys next month, so you can send the girls over anytime... you can now too, but they would have to cross the busy street. Please let me know if there's a time you need dinner and I can make a double batch of whatever we're eating. :)
