4 years at home!

One of my top 3 happiest memories is Andrew's NICU homecoming.  It was 4 years ago today on April 24th, 2009. 

After 17 weeks of being in NICU, so much worry and uncertainty, we were given the news that our baby was coming home, wireless and healthy.  I cannot remember a day in my entire life when I felt more relieved and more free.  

They unhooked his heart monitor, Ryan pulled up the car, we stopped by the pediatrician on the way home to calibrate the scales, and we pulled in the drive way.  First we took his picture on the front step, we gave him a tour of his new home, and we topped off this wonderful warm, sunny day with a walk in the neighborhood.  

(I wish we still had this car seat for pictures, but I couldn't justify keeping it just for that ;) )


Andrew was 2 lb 3 oz and 13 inches tall when he was born - which is how long this Tigger is. 

At right, Andrew was 5 months actual (about 2 months old adjusted)

So thankful that he's thriving and happy!
