Emma got a special treat after dinner tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it :)

Emma was very polite while eating her cupcake

This doesn't have anything to do with her cake, but my dad taught Emma what a "grandpa says" (I love you) and it's super cute!

I've been getting nasty comments from my followers about the lack of pictures. I'm sorry, work is crazy and I've been trying to work out at night so my computer time is a bit limited. Hopefully these pictures will do the trick :)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Yes, this is the same skirt she wore last year. I guess that is one upside of a child who doesn't grow

Valentine's Party at school

"oh, we get cookies??"


I love to listen to her laugh

Full Circle

Today is the 2 year anniversary of me being admitted to the hospital with my abruption and being told that I was going to deliver at any moment and that are outlook wasn't positive (the story is here if you haven't read it). Today I had my first successful support group. In a word it was amazing. We had 7 families show up and the developmental therapist gave a short talk. Then we spent the rest of the time answer questions and just chatting with the parents. We gave out our gorgeous gifts and spent hours talking with a couple of the moms. It was everything I had ever dreamed it would be. It was the cumulation of everything that we've been through and the reason that we went through hell. It was awesome.

My Gram has been knitting hats for our Support Group congratulation gifts and I just had to share how talented she is. I asked her to help us out if she was bored about 3 weeks ago and she's making about 1 a day!! Not only is she churning them out, but they are SOOO adorable!! Obviously I don't want to have another preemie, but if I did, I would want them to wear one of these hats!
All the hats

For size comparison, isn't it adorable??
