Three Months Ago Today

Three months ago today she came into this world weighing 2 pounds 8 ounces and at a length of 15 1/4 in. Today she is over 8 pounds and 21 inches long.

Three months ago today she had all sorts of tubes and wires attached to her little body. Today she is sleeping in a lambie nightgown, wireless and tubeless.

Three months ago today her entire body was covered with fine white hair. Today she has a head full of honey blond hair.

Three months ago today she was on a ventilator to help her breath. Today she is breathing on her own, sometimes a bit fast or deeply, but on her own nonetheless.

Three months ago today she was eating through an IV. Today she chugs down at least two ounces every three hours - most of the time even more!

Three months ago today she was having A's and B's and was on caffiene to keep her going. Today you can't stop her.

Three months ago my life changed from everything I had ever known, black became white, up became down - it was no longer about me.

Three months ago I learned what a true miracle is.

Three months ago I was given a tremendous gift and challenge, looking back I would have it no other way.

Happy 3 months Daisy Lou.
