I feel so accomplished. I promised myself I would scrub my kitchen floor today before I was allowed a nap and I definitely got er' done! I went to the gym, did cardio, went to work and now I've come home and scrubbed the floors by hand, sanitized bottles and did the dishes and it's only 12:30pm!

A HUGE and very heartfelt thank you to all the therapists past and present at The Children’s Therapy Centre, & to Andrea Fourie, for all their love, support & guidance they have given Alex from the day they met him in NICU (July 2016) to today 11 December 2018. The many many visits to the NICU, the hours of weekly therapy, the expertise and sheer passion that these ladies possess have helped Alex reach his milestones and get him to where he is today. Thank you so very much. We shall miss you. Therapy Rocks! 💚💚 #26weeker #preemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #preemiepower #preemiemom #micropreemie #micropreemiemom #micropreemiemiracles #therapy #therapysession #speechtherapy #occupationaltherapy #neurophysio #tinymebabies
I couldn't decide which one I Loved Best, so why not all three! ⁣ 🦌⁣ The Homestead Baggette from @perfectlypreemie has a great fold-over bottom to keep little toes warm & covered. Little mitten cuffs to protect from scratches and a matching cap.⁣ 🦌⁣ Then the moose-themed Side Snap set from @ittybittybabyclothing is a great take-me-home set. The footed pants and matching hat all come together to perfection.⁣ 🦌⁣ Finally, there is the I Am Loved Organic Footie by @lovedbaby. Who has to wonder why this wouldn't be on my favorite list when it says just how you feel!⁣ 🦌⁣ 🦌⁣ 🦌 ⁣ #moose #footie #nicubaby #preemie #nicu #preemieclothes #micropreemie #preemiepower #preemiesrock #preemiebaby #prematurebaby #tinybaby #premmie #nicuwear #babyclothes #miraclebaby #homestead #loved

Still can’t believe you’re 9 months old. You’ll be a whole year old before I know it. Doctors say you are doing amazing but tiny lol. I love you so much bug. ❤️❤️
Just a few short months ago I knitted the cardigan on the left for my preemie boys who were still in hospital and just starting to wear clothes. Everything in 'normal' sizes (even tiny baby) was massive, and this was roomy for a while too! To think I am now getting ready to finish the sleeves and make up the jumper on the right (that I started knitting while still pregnant) and it will fit perfectly!

We had a BABY👶🏾! I’m so excited for you all to get to know him/her on here. I want to catch you all up so much, but finals are happening...like NOW! ——————————————————————————-So until then, catch a glimpse of our birth announcement + gender reveal! Just a heads up - We did NOT know the gender. We allowed our videographer to “do the honor” and open up the envelope and give us the correct canon color💙💗! Let me tell you, I was SHOCKED! I was pretty sure the tech stated the other sex, but I digress. My husband assured me, I was INCORRECT! (Who me😩) ——————————————————————————— In regards to our videographer, her name is Mika and she did an amazing job + she is the sweetest🍭. She even sent a handwritten note to thank us, I mean c’mon! If your ever in Dallas and need EXCELLENT work and customer service, reach out to her...you won’t be disappointed! ———————————————————————————▪️Check out our full video of the announcement in my bio. 🔅#blackmomskillingit #blackmomsbelike
Every day, I watch him grow..I'm in such awe of the #miracle of his life. I love him so much and am so proud of my little #fighter 😍. I can't believe how much he's grown! Every day he's holding his head up better and stronger. He loves to scoot himself around on his back..lol..he doesn't stay still! Hes out of newborn clothes and in size 0-3 month. He still eats every 2 hours 😖 but..at night, he's finally giving me at least 4-5 hours sleep. #12weeksadjusted #5monthsold #preemie #preemiesrock #preemielife #preemiepower #preemiestrong #preemielove #preemiebaby #preemiemom #preemiewarrior #mymiracle #preemiejourney #preemiesofinstagram #ourlittlepreemie #preemieprince #fightlikeapreemie #miraclebaby
When they were born, they had to take formula through a tube because they didn’t have the energy or brain power to use a bottle. Now here they are 11 months later, eating leftover brisket and challah. #tothemoonandback #transformationtuesday #nicubabies #nicugrads #preemiestrong . . . . . . . . #gaydads #gayswithkids #gays_with_kids #samesexparents #twodads #lgbtfamily #twins #twinstagram #twinsofinstagram #twinning #twinsisters #fraternaltwins #sisters #babies #babiesofinstagram #dads #dadlife #parenting #preemiebaby #preemietwins #marchofdimes #shareyourstory

Day 28 (Ollie in NICU): 12/10/18 - 35 weeks, 5 days (gestational age), 3 weeks, 6 days old (age since birth) ▫️Back & forth is the name of the NICU game. The doctor called with an update this morning and said that Oliver was back down in feedings to 60% so the feeding tube is staying in for now. The nurse he had tonight when I visited was very understanding and said she knows this is the most frustrating part for parents because we get excited about progress and want to bring him home, and then we have to keep waiting. But she encouraged me that he is still moving forward because they didn’t give him any oxygen during feedings so he was working hard on his own which is why he would get tuckered out. He just has to build stamina, and we would rather know that he can safely eat on his own than risk bringing him home before he’s ready. He did have two good feedings while nursing so he earned rockstar status with that once again. The nurses said it’s very rare that a nicu baby does better with breastfeeding than a bottle - so he’s defying the odds! ▫️I was in the hospital for 28 days from the time my water broke to my discharge date, and today was day 28 for Ollie in the NICU - so his hospital stay will be longer than mine was. ▫️In other news at home, we moved Wilder to his big boy bed and room today! He has done really well with the transition so far so hopefully he keeps it up. Not only will this help us prepare for Ollie’s homecoming by freeing up the nursery, but it also helps that Wilder won’t be in a crib so I don’t need to make sure Ryan is home to help lift him in and out bed. Thankfully my recovery is improving, but I still have lifting restrictions for at least two more weeks. Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement - it always helps! #nicubaby #preemie #preemiebaby #preemiestrong

Check out this funny guy! The NICU can be a scary place so it’s important to remember the days that make you laugh. #wildwade is just that, a crazy man who loves to move around, which means you never really know what you’re going to find when you peek in at him. Yesterday I found his tortle strap had turned into an eye mask and it made me laugh and laugh. I love this kid so much.
Livvy’s Journey: Day 10- The rainbow after the storm Livvy has made miraculous progress in the last few days she is now back up to her birth weight of 2lb and 2oz and is digesting 12mls every 2 hours. My production has upped to 15mls every 3 hours with the help of kangaroo care and simply how beautiful she is. Jett points at the expressor and says “babies milk” his face when he first saw mummy start expressing was so funny but now he’s got used to it and understands that I do it for his little sister. My pain is less today and I’ve decided to stop the dihydrocodene as it just sends my head loopy and I have to think straight as I’m reminded it’s only 2 weeks til Christmas!!! I’ve lost so many days I really have no clue how we are going to pull this one off! My little ones have been writing their Xmas cards, (thanks to Nannie for getting them some at the weekend)they can’t wait to give them out! There’s a nativity, a drama production, and a Santa’s breakfast this weekend not to mention a mummies Christmas night in that I would love to make it to . So I need to stay focused, strong, eat, sleep, express, love and make sure I don’t let anxiety creep up and lead me to avoid these lovely events. Wish me luck x #anxietyawareness #christmas #preemiebaby #preemie #gettingstronger #avoidance #feedingwell #highflow #stayfocused
Well if this isn’t the BEST Christmas present! 🙏🏼 After 198 days (more than 6 months) this handsome, strong little guy Logan finally got to go home with his amazing Mum & Dad last week. ✨🙏🏼 My heart absolutely explodes with happiness for you Kat - you have been SO positive theoughout this whole journey & now you have Logan home with you. 💙💙 @katmill11 @loganjmiller18 #premmiemilestonecards
Happy 1st birthday to this little miracle super baby💕 born 8 weeks early and being the teeny-tiny but mighty girl she is she fought and has been the best little selfie and cuddle giver! So so proud of her, her awesome mummy @hnsequine and her awesome daddy @henryc_gb for making and raising such a cool kid and being so strong through everything! *hi 5 guys- you did good* even if you didnt call her the name i chose.. she will always be Beryl to me😂🙊 #veritysjourney #bestbaby #coolkid #preemiebaby
So much love in this video. Babies come to know familiar voices in the womb. It must be so strange to be born and suddenly hear new and unfamiliar voices in the NICU. Seeing the reconnection in this video is heartwarming, imagine the baby must think, “ahhh there you are!” ❤️ Thank you for sharing @nailsbysparklenicole . . #nicubaby #preemiebaby #micropreemie #preemies

Nincs két egyforma koraszülött. Minden baba más és más. - Túlélési esélyeik is változhatnak attól függően, hogy mikor jönnek a világra, mekkora a súlyuk. - Általában a korababák igen éretlenek és nehezebben tudnak alkalmazkodni a külvilág körülményeihez. Fejletlen az idegrendszerük, a tüdejük stb. és nehezebben reagálnak a külvilág ingereire. Nem véletlen tehát az a bizonyos 40 hét. Hiszen a fejlődésnek, növekedésnek meghatározott rendje, üteme van. Egy normál időben világra jött újszülött sem érett a külvilágra, nehogy egy koraszülött. - Minél korábban születik meg a baba, annál inkább orvosi támogatásra, segítségre szorul. A szakemberek igyekeznek csökkenteni az esetleges szövődmények kockázatát, de így is hatalmas kihívást jelent számukra. #beszéljünkakoraszülésről #éniskoraszülővagyok #koraszülöttekblog

How did I get so lucky with this kid? I cried again today. Just looking at him and holding him in his nursery gives me all the feels. It will never cease to amaze me how a human can create another human. I didn't know I could love someone so much. He will always be a part of me.

Baby Bear did great with today’s adventures 🙌 . Took two naps, one at Daddy’s work and the other in the craft store while I carried him ❤️ We brought two bottles with us because he hasn’t been breastfeeding well during the day since I’ve been back to work. It’s like he prefers the bottle or is used to getting the bottle now during the day. But today was only the 2nd time he’s breastfed in public!!!!!!!! Kind of public - in the backseat of our car in the Fred Meyer parking lot lol. But nonetheless it was such a good feeling!! Our breastfeeding journey has been up and down since his birth. So when moments like this happen, and he WANTS to breastfeed during the day, is happy, smiling and is content the whole time I know it’s all worth it 😍🐻🙏

@sammistern When the doctors at Sparrow realized Zoey had to be delivered ASAP they sent a representative from the NICU to our room to speak with us... The lady came in and told us why she was there; She had to try to prepare us for what we may be in for with Zoey coming so early. I knew it was going to be scary information but I really wasn’t prepared for what we were about to hear. She told us this was going to be tough but she had to tell us everything. She told us Zoey may be born with a hole in her heart (PDA), she may have bleeding on the brain, she may not be able breathe on her own and require assistance, she may be deaf, and she could be blind, she could face long term developmental delays. Thankfully she told us after 28 weeks your babies risk goes way down for the more severe complications. I can honesty say I’ve never prayed more intensely in my life. I asked god to protect Zoey and make sure she was healthy and in return I promised him I’d give her the best life possible if he just gave me the chance. God answered our prayers and Zoey had no major complications. I got the opportunity to witness a miracle in real life. 🙏❤️ #preemiestrong #nicugraduate #31weeker #Hellpsurvivor #Preemie #nicumom #warrior #preemiestrong #fromminitomouse #preemie #preemiebaby #prematurityawareness #preemiepower #preemiestrong #preemielove #nicuawareness #nicuawarenessmonth #nicujourney #nicumom #nicudad #nicunurse #nicurollercoaster #preemiepower #nicujourney #nicumom #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #preemielove #fromminitomoose

I like to look back at photos of baby girl ALL the time. She started this life at 5 pounds 3 ounces and was 6 weeks early. She is now almost 8 months old and weighs 19 pounds. She has not had any delays and is thriving and showing her personality more and more every day! • I love this little girl so much. She is happy 90% of the time. She loves to babble, roll, and squeal. 😍
Inspiring Women: Life With Jami....”They read off a bunch of statistics and said that Ellie would have no quality of life and they wanted to know our decision on whether to continue care for her. 💗 She would most likely be blind and deaf, she most likely wouldn’t be able to swallow or hold her head up, she wouldn’t be able to sit up or walk, she was in pain. 💗 We prayed that if she was severely disabled, that she would at least know that we loved her and that God loved her. They asked us three more times that next week if we were sure...read more.

Livvy’s Journey:Day 9-Houseful of tears Stress,strain and shock engulfed the house here today. I’ve still only been pumping just under 10mls every 3 hours whereas Livvy is digesting 10mls every 2hours, the deflating feeling of not providing enough BM stampeded to its peak. Exhaustion and lack of sleep are also a main component too with my body being very stubborn that it doesn’t need or want it and Jamie’s body feeling like it could sleep forever. Every time I cry, Jamie cries too. we’re struggling to think clearly, we have had a lack of motivation and im still in pain and taking a massive dose of painkillers, not to mention I now have thrush from the tablets. As the black cloud loomed over us Nannie Wendy came round to help with maintaining the house, encouraging us to keep going, being ever so patient when she is really truly hurting for us and wishing our pain away. Auntie Kelly also came round to help, picking the kids up from school and helping with dinner preparations, I don’t know what I’d do without them two! We have been visiting Livvy separately the last few days, normally we would bond with our new baby side by side, smiling and cooing and staring in amazement. Here’s a photo Jamie sent me earlier when I was at the dinner table with the little ones, they all thought baby Livvy looked soooo tiny in daddy’s arms. My mum took me to see baby Livvy after Jamie got back and I too got my fix, my body felt at peace once she was in my arms, this time though she didn’t sleep, she kept opening her eyes and staring into mine. She knew who I was! My lovely Livvy! While my mum drove us back my whole body felt calm, I realised then that my body had been missing and aching for Livvy and I knew I would sleep tonight (after I express that is). #daddysarms #maledepression #tears #traumaawareness #hdu #placentaabruption #postnataldepression #shock #preemiestory #preemiebaby #colostrum #pumpingmum #daddy #mummy #prematurebaby #trauma #exclusivelypumping #lactating #thrush
Prayer Update-Thank you for the prayers everyone. The surgery went well!....... . . . . . Good morning OLP... just a little request for prayer for our little Ryder Jackson, @lovewinstwins 9.23.18 24.5 weeker. He is being prepped for (shunt) surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as I write this. He’s also fighting through a bacterial infection in his intestines. Good news is he is off the vent completely. So baby boy is fighting!! 💪🏼💪🏼 Thank you all for your sharing. It’s helped us so much🙏🏼💜 God bless from Grams.
Oh the nesting, I had gotten back from Hawaii and slowly started into that fun little nesting phase of my pregnancy. My work had become increasingly stressful and in that chaos, preparing our home was a way to let all the stress go. I wanna be pretty candid here, my work became a hell hole. I’m talking like a switch was flipped and I went from being their number one employee to the employee they constantly had a problem with. When I told my boss I was pregnant, he reacted as if I had asked for a divorce and kicked his dog on the way out the door. My hours were cut nearly in half, I was critiqued on things I was previously praised for and almost every interaction I was having was no longer positive. To say I felt hated wouldn’t be an understatement. When I sought out advice from friends, I had a few other friends speak about how they had similar experiences when they told their bosses they were pregnant. It really made me sad that women are treated poorly because they’re bringing a life into this world. Without children we have nothing! Where did things get so lost, that this idea of slave away till you die and your life is your work truly took meaning? My work became upset at the thought of me needing time off and that I won’t be able to continue to work 12 hour days with no breaks or lunch. How crazy is that ? Was your work happy for you or did you get the cold shoulder? How do we foster change in the workforce and help new families? NEW POST UP! Head over to www.livingwithlittlemiracles.com for more and I would LOVE to hear from you! 💕
