There is no place like home!

8:41pm- We made it home! We are blown away with all of the gifts, food, cards, household tasks completed, and messages. What a wonderful surprise to return to! We are so incredibly moved. There are no words to describe how grateful we are.

Traffic made our trip home a long one (4.5 hours long). Jacob did ok. James did a great job driving.

Upon arrival home Jacob's face lit up. He is clearly very happy to be home. He was kicking and smiling, blowing bubbles, and he even let out a few giggles. We received some balloons and they were the highlight for him. Wow, environment really makes a difference for spirit! Right now he is up to his old antics giving us a hard time with bedtime routine. Good old Jacob! So wonderful to be back home and seeing him so happy.

I better head to bed. Its been another long day for James and I. We both took turns on night shift and have been up for too many hours to count. Hopefully Jacob sleeps ok tonight and we can catch up on sleep.

Good night everyone! Sweet dreams! Thank you for welcoming us home with so much love!


  1. This makes me so incredibly happy to hear! (And not just because I can skip yoga tomorrow!) All of it: that you are home, that being in a familiar environment is bring Jacob back to his normal self, that you guys will get a good night's sleep in your own bed, all these things make me so happy for you all! Auntie Martha did such a great job organizing people to get your home ready for your return, so I'm sure you won't want for anything.

    Sleep well this weekend and I hope that we can catch up in person soon.

  2. So happy to hear you are home!

  3. It is incredible how healing being at home can be. So happy you are back! We have missed you!
