Adorable! How heartbreaking it must have been to see that poor, swollen baby after her surgeries... But she looks to have bounced right back! I hope she enjoys being back home and sits around putting on lots of weight for you guys!

I admire your courage through all of this! I would have been terrified had I been in your situation, especially after the surgeries. She looks much better now, and I hope her progress continues! I still can't get over the strength you guys have as a family!

Soo happy to hear that Miss Scarlett is back home. Nothing better than that. Our sob had a Neurosurgery when he was 6 months old, bilateral incisions and now he's hair has grow covering those scars. She'll be just fine. Try to rest and enjoy your baby @ home.

We have that same Wubbanub paci :) My husband calls it "giraffe-cow" because it doesn't rrally have a long neck like a giraffe, so its spots make it look like a cow! So glad to see updated pictures!

Bonnie said...

It is strange that although she is wearing hats to cover her incision, all I see is her beautiful face! I love the last picture of her with punk rock hair best of all because she reminds me of the cupie dolls my grandmother had when I was a little girl. Scarlett is certainly a strong and beautiful butterfly!!!

Katie said...

She is so cute!!! I love the picture of her in the monkey hat because she looks like she wants to box someone. I think she is saying, "come here tumor so I can throat punch you!"
