National Prematurity Awareness Day

Today is National Prematurity Awareness Day.... did you know that 1 in 8 babies in this country will be born premature? ugh, that is just too many!
I have thought about this many times throughout the day and it is just amazing to me to see my little preemies and where they are today.

I did everything I could in my pregnancy to take care of these two and still they came 6 weeks early. I will never forget that night.... good and bad, I can remember it all.

Jack in his "box".... ha ha, I remember the Doctor joking with me with my "Jack in the Box"... I laughed but it was sad at the same time.

The whole point of this post was just to remind me how wonderfully fortunate and lucky I am to have had such a success with our preemies. I am truly blessed!
