I seriously must be PMSing today. I am just so emotional! It's Dylan's first birthday and I can't help but think about what I was feeling and where we were both physically and emotionally this time last year. NICU has some really high highs and some really low lows. I was so blessed to have great doctors, nurses, family and friends there... and here online. Thank you to all of you who listened to me rant and whine about everything from being scared, to not having a computer desk in the crappy room they moved me into, to the heartbreak of leaving the hospital without her, and the triumph of bringing her home. Okay, I'm seriously bawling here at my desk and lunch is almost over so I'm about to have 25 13 year-olds coming back in my room. Need to go wash my face!
I totally understand! I get all weepy every birthday of Kayson's. Infact I almost cried this morning thinking Cohen is already 6 weeks old.

I can't even imagine what that's like, but know that you are obviously not wrong with remembering and reminiscing. Love that picture of her and so glad God pulled you all through that time. Hugs girl!

I can't believe she's 1 already! and emotions are a good thing.
Happy birthday Dylan!

DD's first birthday was really emotional for me, too! But it was also such a milestone that you just look at that sweet face and count your blessings. I think it all got a bit easier to process and not get so emotional over after the one year mark. Don't get me wrong, I still get sappy and sentimental and even still get all teary when I look at those pictures from the NICU.
That was just to say that I understand! And it's okay to still be emotional over it all!
