Wow she's come a very long way! It's amazing how the length of the NICU stays many times have nothing to do with their gestation. Kiran was a tiny 30 weeker and her stay was 130 days, sometimes as long as a 26 or 27 weeker. Crazy huh?

Melissa congrats on the new future addition!

Jen wow amazing! Congrats on the new future addition!

And I love the chub on Ayla! It took me a while to start seeing chub on Kiran since she had serious FTT issues/not eating/not tolerating anything. Right now at 18 months this is the chunkiest she's ever been : )
