Jason and James Turn 6!

Six years ago this coming week I had my first little girl 13 weeks early- weighing only two pounds, she went straight to the NICU at St. Jude.  Over the course of the 13 weeks we spent watching her grow in the hospital, we made many dear friends along the way: the skilled doctors; the compassionate nurses; and those people who truly understand like nobody else does exactly what you are going through, because they are going through it too, the other NICU families.

NICU mamas and babies  xoxoxoxo

Jason and James were in the NICU at the same time as Jordyn was, and those long hours sitting, praying, watching as our little ones made it through the rigors of their days in the NICU bonds mamas hearts to each other, even just in the knowing glances and smiles across the room as we each sat next to our baby's isoletes.  This family has truly been a joy to know and were always walking one step ahead of us in the NICU journey - it was an honor to watch their boys turn six this weekend and to look back at all they've each come through to be these beautiful six year olds!


Here's an  oldie of the kids at a post NICU playdate...


And here they are this weekend celebrating six beautiful years of life!

















A big thanks you Matt and Tonya to your family for walking the road with us and being those parents who's tender eyes said you knew how we felt in those days in the NICU.  And thank you for both your friendship and the privilege of capturing your boys's 6th birthday!  We are honored to call you friends!
