Straight from the NICU to my bed
Our 1st time co-sleeping
I just want to take a moment to reminisce about the first time I brought my sweet daughter, Isabella, home. Four years ago yesterday, we were released from the NICU.
It was Prematurity Awareness Day 2006!
I was so excited. Perfect timing for my preemie to come home. It was exactly two weeks from the date she was born.
Finally, finally, finally, I would feel like the mother I always wanted to be.
The thing is, when leaving the NICU, it's a different ball game. Without the wires and machines telling me that she was okay, I couldn't tell for sure if she really WAS okay.
I didn't take my eyes off of her for a second.
I still haven't.
Is she okay? Thank God, yes! Despite her being 7 weeks early, she is very blessed to be in good health.
She is also a blessing!
