Hospital Mates

Jonathan and Ella were both admitted into the hospital the other week with pneumonia. We went to visit them the other day, and it turns out that they have been lodged in the same little room. Just two beds, one for each of them with their nannies. It was a cozy little party and it seems that they are getting along fine. Ella's lungs still have quite a ways to go before she can come home, but Jonathan seems to be recovering well.

And they seem to be becoming good friends during this stay. When his nanny asked him to look at the camera for the picture, Jonathan misinterpreted what she said and gave Ella a kiss instead. What a charmer!

Ariana joined the little trip to the hospital. Her once-cleft palate is healing nicely and she's growing so happy and beautiful.

We returned home to find that Claire had been released from the hospital. She had pneumonia as well, but is doing much better. She was very happy to be home, as were all the nannies and children. "Claire's home!" they cheered.

We're so happy to have Claire home, and hope that Jonathan and Ella will join us soon. Come on, babies, get better quickly!


  1. I LOVE that picture of Jonathan where it looks like he is kissing baby Ella... too cute! Ariana looks fabulous, and SO glad Claire is doing better and back 'home' again! Stay healthy Claire, and get well soon, Jonathan and Ella. We're praying for you!!


  2. How sweet! Too adorable! I am so glad that Claire is doing better and I am praying for Jonathan and Ella.

    In Christ,

  3. What precious pictures. Glad to hear everyone is on the mend. Praying for continued health for everyone at the place where "love grows"!
    Love & Blessings,
