We had a wonderful Christmas this year, and hope you did too. We traveled for the first time since Elizabeth was born and it was both great and the other end of it was all the packing and driving. We were able to see almost all of our family on both sides over the course of the holiday season.
Elizabeth was in her very first Christmas program where she "starred" as a little lamb. She later was a little piggy in the church program. Ava was an angle for the church program and also had a school program.
Elizabeth was born weighing just 1 pound and 3 ounces. She spent 109 days in the NICU; coming home one week before her due date. She spent a month a a ventilator, then moved toCPAP, and was on oxygen for 5 months. She had a PDA ligation, Grade 1 IVH, ROP laser surgery, multiple blood transfusions, and a sepsis infection.
