Well ladies, as I am typing this update Ms Julia is crying in my arms! We came home on Dec 18th just in time for my Dec 21st birthday, it was BY FAR the best holiday season EVER.
She's home on oxygen and daily medications that keep me busy but I feel so blessed and wouldnt change it for the world! As of a week ago she was 7lbs, we go Friday to the pediatrician, I bet we're 8lbs! Eating, and growing is what we are doing!!!
