October so far..

We were able to go to the Saturday morning session of conference. My aunt Bonnie Jo got us tickets. It was so great to just walk over there from our apartment and not worry about parking or anything. 
(whoops... poor couple in the background)

My mom was also up conference weekend. Its always so fun to have her!

This was the day Ellie came home! It was such a wonderful day and also a little tiring! We stayed at the hospital the night before to do a trial night with her. We had also been so busy all week getting things ready for her, not to mention we had 3 things go wrong with our car that needed to get fixed! Luckily my brother is so talented and was so kind to help us hurry and get it fixed. We also had a ton of home health equipment get delivered that day and a lot of new machines to get used to for Ellie. It was overwhelming, but we are so happy to have her home.

Yesterday, we took Ellie out and went on a walk. It is quite the task to get a normal baby out the door, and then add a ton of equipment with that and it is a little more difficult. It was so nice to get out and get fresh air. We walked around temple square and City Creek. I love the fall weather here in Utah.

So grateful for my husband. 


  1. She looks so tiny in her carseat! I can tell she (and you two) are so happy to have her home. She is such a beautiful girl!

  2. Yeah! Glad you were able to bring her home and get out on a walk! So nice! Ellie is so adorable. Can't wait to see her again.

  3. What a relief to have her home FINALLY! I am so happy for you guys. She is so beautiful!

  4. Oh Kaylee! This brought a tear to my eye! So glad she is doing so well to come home. I love her sweet smile.

  5. You and Ismael are amazing!! I am so proud of the parents you are to Ellie. Thank you for being so strong and constant for her. You are all so beautiful. Love you!!!

  6. Hooray! I'm so happy she is finally home with you!
