{pretty in pink}

Our first week (almost) in the Spica cast has gone so well!

Juno was discharged from the hospital Wednesday afternoon. She's been so mellow and happy all week--of course, that could be because she's been taking Lortab every 6 hours. I'd be happy, too!

She has a special Hippo car seat that the hospital loaned us. It's basically like a normal convertible car seat, but about twice as big and she sits on a huge wedge shaped pillow to accomodate her bar.

I was happy to see that almost all her clothes still fit, including onesies! I attempted to make a cloth diaper cover today so you can't see her giant diaper all the time, but it was a fail. I think I'll just buy one.

So far no diaper disasters. I do have to blow dry her bum in the mornings, but she seems to like it!

Tempe and Helena were so happy to come visit their sister at the hospital! They were also excited to play in the hospital playroom. Yes, my children think the hospital is fun.

It's only been 5 days and her cast is already pretty much covered with flowers, butterflies, names, and scribbles.

Tempe loves her portable art project!

I'm so glad that everything is going so well!! I have been so worried about how you are doing, and how Juno would adapt, but it seems to be pretty good! I can't imagine the mental trauma you are going through with all this happening to your baby, but way to keep a positive attitude! You rock!

That is so wonderful to hear that everything is going well!

Praise God!

How is she sleeping at night? I hope she is adjusting.

So cute that the girls love to color her cast. :)

I love that the girls are coloring her bum!! So cute, such memories being made.

I'm so glad to hear that everything is going so well. Juno looks like such a sweet little girl. I know it's so hard putting your children through all that discomfort but you know that it will help in the long run. Sure do miss you guys here in snowy Laramie.
