She's soooo cute! And, wow, has she done a LOT of growing. I don't think it's silly at all to feel a little melancholy and sadness at the anniversary of her arrival - I'm sure it was a scary (as well as happy, of course) time for you all that most of us can identify with on some level. Happy birthday, Izzy!

CONGRATULATIONS on reaching 1 year.

Michael will be 1 on the 19th, he is a 32 weeker born at 2.10 as well..he also had NEC but thankfully no surgery. He is probably between 15-16 lbs. He is not yet crawling but very close. Isn't it amazing that a year has gone by...I thought we'd never get out of the NICU.
