Logan's Farewell 8-10-08

My little brother Logan left for his mission on August 12th. He is serving in the Capetown, South Africa Mission! Right now he is in the MTC in Johannesburg?. He did a great job at his farewell, and we were so happy that we could be there with Leighton. We love Logan so much and are so proud of him. Our entire family has been so sad not having him around, but we know he is doing such a great thing. He is always the one to make us laugh. He's got the most amazing personality, and I'm sure the people in Africa will feel the same way. We love you Logan!!!

Coming Home from the Hospital

She barely fit the carseat requirements, but Leighton is finally home!!! She has been home for a couple of weeks now, and it is so nice to have her out of the hospital. We've had a lot of sleepless nights, but I couldn't be happier to stay awake. She is so beautiful and the center of our attention. We are just trying to keep her eating and growing. What a blessing it has been to have her healthy and home every second of the day.

Look... No Oxygen!

(She doesn't like the flash on the camera!)
Little Leighton has done great this week! She is off of her oxygen (keep your fingers crossed), and is doing really well without it. It's been off for 3 days now... they say that's a really good sign. She is still trying to eat on her own, and that's her last hurdle! She is able to eat on her own about 3 times a day, but she's still needing a lot of help from the feeding tube. She's getting bigger and bigger, and we can't wait to get her home. The little miss isn't quite there yet, but the end is definitely in sight!!
