Flashback

3 months ago today... before all the tubes and wires...


One of only two pictures I have of me holding her on her birth day. I didn't know my dad had taken it until he showed it to me just last week... it makes me tear up every time I look at it.

I was so lucky to get to hold her right after she was born, even for just a few minutes. So many NICU mommies don't get that chance. I'll always be grateful that I did.

Happy 3 month birthday, Caroline!

She's precious! You're right...I didn't get the chance to hold him and it still makes me so sad. You're so lucky you could & that your dad got that picture. It's priceless!

She looks so content just being where she is, with mom's arms around her (It's almost like her face just says "I'm gonna soak this up while I can!". This is an adorable photo. It's good your dad got to snap this..I'm sure it's nice to have a reminder of those first precious moments you met her.
