This past week has been an emotional roller coaster, and I cannot begin to thank people enough for all their prayers and support. If you didn't know.. my Oma had a heart attack last friday and was taken to the Ottawa Heart Institute while she waited for a valve replacement, well I am happy to say the surgery was performed yesterday with great success!!
Upon hearing about my Oma I wasted no time getting things ready so Madison and I could go up to Canada to be with my family. We left early Saturday morning and returned Thursday afternoon. It was a fast, short but much needed trip. We were lucky that the nurses allowed me to bring Madison in to see my grandmother. One good thing about this trip was WE GOT TO SEE MY FAMILY :)
Living 6 hours away from my parents and brothers is tough at times and now with Madison it's even tougher, as we would like my family to be able to see her grow and change. We use Facetime ALOT! While we were home we got to see Uncle Brett play in the Annual Midget Hockey Tournament in Prescott, and I also travelled to Belleville with my dad to see Uncle Ryan & the Ottawa 67's play game 4 of their playoff series. The outcome of both games wasn't great. :( Maybe I am bad luck. We also got to have lunch and hang out with Uncle Ryan. Ryan lives about 45 min from my parents and with his hockey schedule its hard to find time to meet up, but lucky us we saw him twice! Madison was very happy she got to spend time with both her uncles. Its funny watching them interact with Madison, she looks like a doll when they hold her! I also got to finally introduce Madison to my Aunt Claudia, Uncle Mark and Aunt Judy.
We made some time to meet up with my friends as well! I was so happy to meet Khloe my friend Cara's 1.5month old! She is adorable! Its great to know that in a few years that when Madison goes to Canada she will already have a friend.
BUT we all know you really just came to the blog to see pictures of our little one.. so here we go!
