Today we celebrated the anniversary of Little One’s homecoming. It may sound silly to most people, but when you’re a parent of a preemie, every little miracle (like being able to finally take your baby home from the hospital) calls for celebration.
Three years ago today, we brought our little bundle of joy home to the Island. After seventy days in the NICU, two weeks in the Level II Nursery, and a transfer to the biggest regional hospital closest to us, we were finally able to have our baby home with us and in our arms.
No NG tube, no CPAP, no leads, no ventilator, no incubator/isolette…nothing.
Just to give you some perspective, Hubby pointed out that this cheese weighs just a little less than Little One did at birth. I think this was 800 g or so. Little One was 980 g. That’s just over 2 lbs of butter (or in this case, cheese)!
Now Little One is a very busy, active, happy girl.
