On Saturday, August 15th we attended our 6th NICU reunion. It has taken me a little bit to actually formulate this blog post as the tears keep rolling. You would think that after six years it would get easier......the pain lessens but is definitely still there.
As I was watching the girls maneuver around their "tiny baby party", I couldn't help but reminisce about how far we've come.....
Watching the girls attempt to climb the rock wall was kind of symbolic of the path our lives have taken.... All the hurdles and mountains we 've had to overcome....
But without perseverance we wouldn't have made it to the top.....
And other times in our lives.....We've have to take things a little slower, and be a little more careful about pushing our kiddos too far.
Many people may not get it, but it really was weird watching the girls attempt to climb that rock wall..... Remembering that just a short while ago they were too fragile to even breathe on their own.
The girls always love the pony rides. Alexis got to ride "Oreo" and Addison rode "Mystic".
They were also pretty excited to meet Blue.....The Butler Bulldog mascot.
But without all the help from the nurses, doctors, our family and our friends we wouldn't be where we are today. We have two beautiful, strong, healthy and happy six year old girls. They are so strong that they were almost able to ring the bell on the "hammer game" this year. We are extremely blessed to have beaten all the odds. I couldn't be more proud of my two little preemie gals!!! God is pretty awesome!!!!

It's been a little over a year since our bathroom flood. A few weeks ago, we finally put the last piece of the puzzle together to complete the rehab. We've been searching for the perfect living room table for several months and could never agree. We finally found it! The girls have been incredible with our endless searching and disagreements in the furniture stores. During the check-out process, the girls made themselves comfortable on some recliners. (No, we did not purchase these gaudy things!!!) I love how the girls both put their arms up behind their heads. The always sleep like this as well.
And these two photos???? I have no clue?? We gave them our phones to play with while we were making our final decisions. I found these pictures later.
