One year ago today we brought Roo home from the NICU. It is amazing how much has changed. She was so tiny and she still is but now she has her personality and doesn’t look like a preemie anymore. I’m still in awe of myself and what we did to get through those first few months – hell, the first year. It was freaking hard. It still is.
I don’t think parents who have full-term babies understand. I know they want to but it’s impossible. I don’t blame them and I’m glad they aren’t in the same position but it makes it hard for them to completely celebrate these milestones like I do 🙂
Here are a couple of photos to compare how big she’s gotten. The first is of she in her car seat on the way home from the hospital. The second is from two days ago in our backyard.
Thanks for being on this journey with me. I appreciate and love you for your support, encouragement and strength.
