Finding Frankie

Frankie's been helping out so much more lately. The first time he walked into the kitchen a few weeks ago and said "is there anything I can do to help?" I nearly fell out of my chair!

Sometimes living in the day-to-day I forget how truly far he's come since coming home from the hospital last year. In 6 weeks it will be 2 years since his accident, and lately I'm painfully aware of how much he has changed because we've been watching home movies from 10 - 12 years ago to compare Lexi and Skye to the babies. The biggest change is so much of his exuberance, his high energy is gone now. But I also see his old self emerging in different ways too, especially when he is doing things for the babies, like feeding them. He does these things the same way and with the same gentleness and care as he did for Lexi and Skye.

That must be hard to see where he was and where he is, but also great that he is as well as he is too. Makes me cherish my time with my husband even more because it makes me think how things can sadly change in an instant. I hope you don't mind me saying that.
On another note - look in the 2nd picture. One of your daughters looks like she is opening her mouth like the babies - that or she is talking? lol
