Happy 6th Birthday Ava!
Where does the time go? I think that may be the question asked of every mother on every birthday. Ava has grown from a squishy baby to a beautiful young lady. She is an amazing little girl. We are so lucky to have her as our daughter.
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.
