God has blessed us and we have never seen any effects of an early birth. The only unusual thing we had to do when we took her home was put her in a bili blanket for jaundice until the home healthcare nurse told us she was fine.I am so grateful for the blessing of my daughter. I pray I will be the godly mother I should be.

Its My Firstborn's Sixth Birthday!
This is a bittersweet milestone for me! Six is so big and grown up. It means she's no longer in K classes, she's a 1st grader! She's losing teeth and getting taller. She's starting to lose interest in big hairbows and bishop dresses. Every day she demonstrates more and more "big girlness." Its bitter cuz I'm sad that the toddler days are over and time has flown by. Its sweet cuz she's turning into such a beautiful and sweet little girl.My firstborn came into the world 6 weeks early, when I developed pre-eclampsia. I was induced and was in labor for HOURS before she finally arrived. We were blessed that she went straight to the regular nursery and did not have to be placed in NICU! (I, however, went straight to ICU for3 days.) She weighed 4 lbs, 6 oz. when she was born and only weighed 3 lbs 15 oz when we took her home 5 days later. She was so sweet even from the beginning. When she came into the world, they put her up on my chest for me to look at. She just stared at me with her huge eyes and didn't make a sound. I'll never forget that sight!
