I had a few moments last night to look through some blogs of other NICU parents. Some were just starting their fight while others just took their preemie out to the "outside world" after months of staying in protecting their child. Wade and I talked about how around this time last year was when our world started to turn upside down. Pretty much every walk we take on as a family, we end up talking about how we felt during certain moments in the NICU and then we are able to look at our girls smiling or babbling at us.
I never want to take for granted that:
I can hold my daughters without anything being attached to them.
I am able to tuck my daughters in at night and then be the first one they see in the morning.
Liana is surpassing any of the doctors expectations.
Adleigh overcame the worst intestinal issue a preemie can have.
My girls love their feet to be touched. (preemies can have feet issues because of how often they got stuck for blood)
That we are able to ride in the car without the heart monitors.
They love food and don't have any oral aversions.
We have a church that supported us and prayed for us.
My God picked me up and carried me through the most difficult season I have faced.
What do you never want to take for granted?
