NICU Moms Follow Up!!

I have blogged about this many times before, but we spent 25 days in NICU last year.  Skeeter was born at 32 weeks gestation and weighed in at 3 lbs, 5 oz.  We were completely blessed that she was born breathing on her own, but we still faced a number of obstacles keeping her from home.  

She had jaundice and multiple episodes of bradycardia.  She was sent home with an apnea monitor, that I had a severe love/hate relationship with.

This is my post from the first NICU Moms Link Up.

Skeeter is now almost 1 year old- seriously, I can't believe it- and she is doing great!  She's started walking with a walker and crawls like a champ.  She's such a happy baby, always grinning and giggling.  And she's thankfully just like all of the other babies her age.

Here are some recent pictures:

She's come such a long way!  I can't wait for her birthday party (this weekend!) and to get some 1 year old pictures.

Hi Heather- this is my first time linking up with you! I wasn't sure what to do because you said its a follow up but of course I didn't link up before...I hope that's ok! I added my link to a post I did 2 weeks ago about our NICU experience.
