One Year Ago Today

A year ago today I was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring of the babies--especially Kaylie. I would later stay there for a month before delivering. I remember how sad I was to be missing the nice weather spring brings. I've been doing a lot of reminiscing lately as their birthday approaches later this month. Just looking back at the NICU pictures, to be used in a photo montage, opens a whole floodgate of emotions.

oh wow, you were admitted very close to the same day i was (may 17). i was enormously sad to be stuck in the hospital and missing out on so much and it really took me a long time to adjust to being in the hospital. with our 1st approaching, i have been reminiscing a ton lately has been so long since i have gone through photos and i am terrified to even look at the pictures from their birth and nicu days. looking back, i realize how much more difficult it all was to deal with at the time than i gave myself credit for. what a year!

Isn't it amazing how it affects you. I was very emotional around their birthday. I think it is just being completely thankful for where they are at. Not all parents get that and I try to be thankful for it. Thank goodnes your babies are doing so well and enjoy the reminiscing even the bittersweet stuff b/c that is a part of their little lives. Thanks for the scrapblog help btw.

I know all too well how you are feeling. my boys were not born early, but still thinking about the past year is hard. I cried alot up until their first birthday.

Liz, that is great about the beach ball. You just never know how they'll react. My boys both cry when I put a new trash bag in the can sometimes and then other times they look at me like "what? it's just a trash bag". They're all hysterical!

It is amazing when you think back on it, isn't it?
After I just did my whole How we Came to be thing, I sat there re-reading it and getting teary realizing all I have been through with all of my kids.
Motherhood is such an amazing journey!
