From time to time, I like to take a moment and step back from the crazy, hectic day to day life in our home and reflect on all the great things we have been so lucky to have in our life and to our family.
This past weekend as I was preparing for our trip to Chicago, I noted that Saturday, November 17th was World Prematurity Day. On this day, I was very aware as this World Prematurity Day 2012, we celebrated our little preemie, Ellie, turning 11 months old.
When Ellie was born, at 36 weeks gestation, she had a few issues with breathing and eating but being the tough little chick that she is, she got over that rather quickly.
At 11 months old, Ellie is walking, babbling, feeding herself, drinking from a sippy and is the happiest baby I have ever met!
We couldn’t be more thankful for our little preemie!
