First Family Photo

This photo deserves its own post. Our first family photo (without Coco, of course, but they don't let dogs into the NICU).

What a beautiful family you are! I am praying for little Elise as well as you and your husband. SHe just looks great even though she is so tiny! I will lift her up to the Throne of Grace daily.

In Him,
Beth

beautiful!!! I know it is hard as I have been there done that, My little muchkin was born at 32 weeks 6 days, we spent 6 weeks in the nicu- 3 weeks in medford and then our baby girl was flown to doernbecker in portland. She had possible nec. After a bumpy 6 weeks we brought our daughter home.
I normally am one to love being in portland, but this one time I could not wait to be home, Ha we drove thought that crazy snow to get home. Took us 2 hours from ohsu to woodburn.
Well anyway just remember, keep bloging, make it a wonderful story she will always treasure, take lots of pictures and enjoy every moment with your daughter. she will be home before you know it.

Praying for your little one and family! I am at 28 weeks and your story has made it so much more real for me even though I'm on #4. I hope you don't mind, I put a link on my blog for my family, friends and readers to pray for your family also. :)
