This is how we roll on #NightShift
in the #NICU
with Zoriya❤️❤️ she sleeps better in our arms.
She just took her biggest bottle so far and we're going to try to get her to take a little extra each feeding tonight.
The only problem with this recliner is that the grownups are not allowed to sleep if we're holding baby. So I'm coffees up and talking to my social media peeps to stay awake.
Thanks for all the prayers and encouragements 😘 #MiracleBaby #NICU #NannaLove
This is all a part of Ellie's journey. A journey that the Almighty God allowed us to walk. A journey that God has faithfully answered a countless number of prayers and petitions! To numerous to count. I recently sat down one morning, during my devotions and started writing down the answered prayers in regards to Ellie... I counted at least 20 Answered Prayers! This was even before Ellie was discharged from the #NICU
. Why does it surprise us when God does answer our prayers?? Is it because we think He only answers the "BIG THINGS, THE BIG PRAYER REQUESTS?". I believe in God's eyes... All of our prayer requests are BIG!! Thank you to ALL who have brought Tyler, Cassie and Eleanor before the Throne of Grace! This journey would have been a lot harder without your faithful prayers! "Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense which are the prayers of the saints." Revelation 5:12.
Eleanor was released from the NICU today!! God is Faithful!! ❤❤❤

These two make me melt! The way they interact and adore one another is seriously the cutest!
We lived in Cambridge for seven years. We planned to stay for 2 or 3 and instead we stayed long enough to build a family and a community and a much fuller, richer life than we anticipated. And today, we left. We are on to bigger if not better things but damn, will we miss it.
Were having the BEST day ever getting to #roomin
with the boys! The #NICU
allows its parents the chance to spend the night in the hospital with the babies before they come home (the same way parents of full term/healthy babies would have that night in the hospital after birth) Everyone please pray for weight gain tonight! #twins #anthony #twinmom #theodore #twinboys #twinning #iuitwins
This little warrior took her whole bottle without needing the ng (nasal gavage) tube! I'm hoping for another two pound gain today! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Zoriya has been nursing very well too🙌🏾🙌🏾. Weigh in at 9pm mountain time. (Note the tiny toes 😭😭😭). #MiracleBaby2018 #MommysMilk #NICU #PrayForZoriya

Whatever the start to your #Motherhood
, I promise that you can fall madly in love with your kids.
Here's my proof 💕
I still can't believe he's eight!!! #MyMild
Contemplating quite seriously the past week of putting “on hold” my postgraduate in Neonatal studies. Census date was looming and totally couldn’t even imagine how I was truly going to keep up the load of a full time grad year and studying again...each day waking up for work I would have to arrest my negative thought path of “I can’t do this!” & “I must be crazy to think I can balance it all!”...I would dream about all the information each night after cramming it in after my shifts or carrying my books to work to only read a few paragraphs in my breaks! YESTERDAY I had the best encouragement and on my exam (the first assessment of many) I got 98.5% High Distinction 🔥🤯 yay!!!! I am not the most experienced in this field and many may even say I need that prior to starting this study 📖 but being armed with knowledge can only be a better outcome for my little patients I care for. It places me on the 🚂 train to get where I want to be and even if I am in cattle class on that train, I am holding tight that I was given the opportunity to get into this specialised field to start with! Sooo I will not put this on hold. I won’t wait. I will keep doing the insanely hard juggle that is now consuming my 🌍 but I know it is again for only a season! #celebratingthiswin #postgradlife #studybringsopendoors #neverstoplearning #visionfocused #nicu #scn #nurselife

A father’s love. I do not know what it’s like to be a father. But watching Landry with Mary, I can imagine. I think that while mothers are most of the time the primary caregiver, dad’s do do their best. Let me speak for my situation. Landry does the best he can with our baby. Sometimes, I think I hold him back. My comments or body language make him feel like he is doing something wrong. Like it is quicker for me to just do the task my self, so I short him out of it. I want to work on taking the extra time with him to allow and help him do more things. Mary being a breastfeed baby takes a lot of needs away from him to begin with, so the things other than feeding, I must allow and encourage him to be apart of. I will do my part as a mom and girlfriend to back off a little. Letting Dad take over and watching his relationship with Mary grow. #preemie #nicu #dadlife #afatherslove #dadda #daddy #dad #family #summer #southcarolina #breastfeeding #caregiver #love #patience #partner #boyfriend #father #blog #daughter

This was almost a year ago. When he was born, it was a little early. This was right after birth. I stood there a nervous wreck with the NICU doctors evaluating him. His breathing was labored and heavy.
They gave him time. We all watched. Eventually the decision was made he had to go upstairs.
It was a hellish two weeks because of the strain it put on Amanda and I as parents and on the kids themselves. The little champ powered through and came home.
Almost a year later, he's gone from struggling to hold his birth weight to being a tank. He's growing and healthy. He's crawling, laughing, exploring and doing everything a baby at this point should be. You'd never know he entered this world a little ahead of schedule.
I love you little buddy. Keep it up and the world never hold you down. 🙂

We had an enormous response to our preemie initiative last week! Our hearts are so filled with the love sent our way for making preemies a priority for goumikids! We were touched by the stories you shared with us and overwhelmed by the need of preemie products that work and work well for these smaller babes! We want to be available for you to ask questions, to hear what you preemie mamas need for your babes and to get you connected with fellow preemie mamas! We’ve created a space for all of the above over on facebook, head to our stories or highlight to join us! 💛💛
Had my first kid, I love how she turned out
I love how she turned up, even if I’m burned out 🎶
내 둥이들 아픈데 없이 잘 커주고 있음
아... 우리서방은 사진을 느므 못 찍는다...도촬이긴 했지만... 건이는 오늘 눈을 뜰려고 눈꺼플에 힘을 막주고 새눈뜨고 몇번쳐다 보다 쪽쪽이 물고 잠들었음 강이는 계속 잠만 잔다 중간중간 몸부림 치고 한참 들여다 보다 왔음
