Well March just flew by, just like January and February. Crazy!!!
Hazel has been hard at work, doin' her thang, bein' a baby. She is rarely sitting these days (or rarely sitting still). We officially have the baby gate up now. She may or may not have been sitting at the gate, hands on the rungs, looking through at me, shaking it violently. Y'all know how it is??? (If you follow our IG feed you already know what I am sayin')
Biggest news for Hazel this month:
SHE FINALLY GOT A TOOTH!!!!!
Lots of this happening...always.
Hazel spent time with Nana. They shared stories and smiles. They laughed and played. So cute!!!
We had a very special visit with Hazel's very first fwends.
The twins that joined Hazel in the same pod in the NICU came for a sleep-over. As we all sat at dinner eating, drinking, talking, and laughing (where there were 3 highchairs all at one table). Holly and I had that mother-to-mother look on our faces that just begged the obvious to be said.
"Look how far we have all come!" "Look how much has changed!"
We sat there talking about what our girls are eating, how much they sleep, how much milk they drink and what they like to play with. While, a little over a year ago, we were racing against the unforgiving "pumping" clock, talking about what nurses were in that day, how many milliliters our girls got tube fed, how tired we were and how many more days until we could all take our babies home.
1 short (quick) year has brought with it an immeasurable amount of wonderful change!
And last but not least...
Happy 10th Birthday Stella.
Can't believe you have been around for 10 years already!!! You are growing way to quickly and taking your sisters with you. Please leave Hazel as she is. She's not allowed to be 10. We are very strict in this house.
We love you!!!
(PS...I love you even more that you had an ice cream cake)
Welcoming April with open arms...
