Best Mother's Day yet!

I am so happy to be home with my family. Summer is really healing quickly, and has kept us laughing non-stop since we've been home. We think she must have been getting headaches (from bad vision, or from the tumor itself) for quite a while. I never would have called her a cranky kid, but she has been SO happy all the time since we've been home.

She even went a full day without a nap yesterday, and didn't have any meltdowns at all! That's unheard of!

We thought we were going to have a number of bad habits to break her from once we got home - bottles of milk all day long, sleeping in bed with Mommy, and a binky 24-7 - but she has transitioned home really well.

I have no medical news to report at this point, but thought you all might like to see some pictures of Summer now that she's home.

Summer helping Rocky use the phone...

C'mon Papa, I know the doctors said no horsing around...but one ride won't hurt!

Pretending she's a pirate - can you hear her saying 'arrrgh' ?


"so big!"

Happy Mother's Day!

This is her pirate beard.

Best Mother's Day gift ever - Summer loving the swings again! You've all probably seen her (or video of her) cackling while on the swings. She used to love them! About a month ago, she developed a fear of the swings and wouldn't go on them anymore. Now, we think it's because her vision was getting bad from the tumor. Today, she was having so much fun - giggling away on the swings again!
Summer always has time to stop and smell the flowers - and to make everyone with her smell them too.

mmm...brownies - thanks Casie!

We hope everyone had as wonderful a Mother's Day as I did!
