Looking Back, part two

As the first year in our first house came to an end, we saw the arrival of this little nugget:

who most of you know, spent a lot longer in the hospital than we expected...and had about 5 brain surgeries more than we expected (5 brain surgeries total). But when she finally did get to come home with us, made herself fully comfortable upon arrival.

And it was like she had been home from the very beginning.
Snuggling in the living room on the couch became our favorite pastime.

She had her very first bath in that kitchen,
and very much enjoyed sleeping on her daddy in our old bedroom.
Bub the hub and I watched our first little love grow up in that house. It was never easy for Avery, but she learned to smile and eat,

and sit and stand!

All of the Halloweens and Christmases, and every sweet birthday we got to celebrate...
Then, of course, little sister came along,
and the memories multiplied exponentially :) 
Little Madeline made herself at home just as fast as her sister had before her.
These sisters learned to love eachother in our old house.
I spent the last day there packing up the remainder of our things and thinking of all of these memories. It was tough! I cried a lot, and laughed a little too, thinking of these wonderful and terrible and amazing and scary things we went through in the last 5 years.
I wish I had photos to share from moving out, but those are all gone along with my stolen camera. Sniff. 
I know our next story is just beginning. We are still looking for a new place to call home. I can't even begin to imagine the memories to come.
