What a difference a year makes

Last Christmas day, we brought Haven home after spending her first 16 days of life in the NICU at Presbyterian Hospital. It was such an exciting, but weird day. We couldn't believe we were bringing home such a tiny baby, but so happy that she wouldn't be in the hospital anymore.

Here is another picture of Haven with her "Remember Me Preemie" doll.

Here we are on Christmas Day 2009.

We went by Presbyterian after our Christmas breakfast to take the nurses a little treat. We are so appreciative of the nurses that took such special care of Haven and gave us so much support during our stay. We figured this year we would celebrate Haven's "coming home from the hospital" day by taking gifts to the hospital and letting them staff see her.
This tree was very familiar, we walked passed it multiple times for 16 days. We are so thankful for a healthy baby.


  1. God blesses us in ways we cannot imagine! I'm so glad you guys have had such a wonderful year and that Haven is doing so well.

  2. What a precious sight to see her healthy and happy by this year's Christmas tree! Praising God for your blessing and pray that this year will be full of new and exciting things for you as a mommy.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog and I love your idea of using the cards as tags for the next year!
