We are finally home. It’s been a long two months (two and a bit, actually). Little One was transfered from Mount Sinai to the hospital in the closest “big city” to us on January 13th and was able to come home on the 18th.
One of the nurses at Mount Sinai told me that should I ever write a book about Little One’s dramatic entrance into the world, I should entitle the book “Confessions of a Preemie Drama Queen” or “Code Pink Baby”. Everything about Little One has been nothing short of dramatic. Her spontaneous birth to her adventures in the NICU…and then being airlifted to her step down hospital. *sigh* I’m surprised I survived all the drama. When I think of everything that has happened, it amazes me that we are finally home. I never thought I was a “strong” person. This whole experience taught me otherwise.
Bath time before the big trip! This will be Little One’s second airplane trip already and she was only 37 weeks corrected in this photo.
One of the nurses was telling Little One that she was about to go on another big adventure! It was so funny because it looked like Little One was really paying attention and listening!
Being airlifted by air ambulance. Brrrrr! It was COLD!
Little One charmed the pants off of the paramedics too. Too funny!
Hubby was so happy to have his girls back home 🙂
Never in a million years would I have imagined having to go through what Little One, Hubby and I had to go through in the 38 weeks of her life. It’s funny to think that in two weeks she will have reached her “due date”.
Grandma was so excited to finally be able to hold Little One!
I know…enough with the baby photos already! 🙂 I just can’t get over how this tiny 2 lb, 3 oz preemie turned into this 5 lb, 9 oz little girlie! I’m also amazed at how long her eye lashes are! Just like her Daddy’s! I’m jealous! Little One won’t have to wear mascara like her Mama! I’ve got really skimpy Asian lashes 🙁
