Today seemed fitting to post our family pictures we had taken a couple months ago. Ruby Jane is in surgery today to fix her little heart. And we cannot wait to get her home and healthy and growing chubby little thighs and arms. :) This has been a bit of a roller-coaster and it will be so nice to get through it and home again as a family! And we are hoping so badly that the news we receive today will be that this will be her only open heart surgery—ever! The average for Tetralogy of Fallot is three, but we are praying for only this one. I will maybe be posting updates on instagram (@lemonsqueezyhome) but not here. Not until it is over. Poor baby—since I’m writing this post a week in advance, I am getting sad looking at her little face knowing what she will be facing in such a short time. But I have to rely on the faith and prayers and the peace we’ve been so very blessed to feel.
I wanted to get our family pictures done before Ruby’s surgery and since we didn’t really know when that would be, we got them taken in October when she was 4 months old. Oh how I love these pictures! We had Lauren from LaLa’s Lens take them. I found out about her from seeing some pictures on Leann Barlow’s blog. We are completely thrilled with the quality and her prices are just amazing. (I will go into detail a bit about the clothing at the end of the post.)
Keep those prayers coming for our sweet Ruby Jane! We are so thankful for the many thoughts and prayers that have been said for her!!! Thank you!
