Happy 1st Birthday to our princess!





One year ago today, our sweet girl, Ava Grace, was born.













Which began our 66 day stay in the NICU.
















Tears, headaches, and six surgeries later...
















We finally got to start our lives outside of the NICU.
















This sweet girl has been such a blessing.


















Always has a smile on her beautiful face.


















Always knows how to make us laugh.
















LOVES her daddy and always wants to play with him.












But thinks Mommy is the best one to snuggle with.













Thank you Lord for this precious, perfect girl! Happy Birthday, Sugar Bear!

I love you to the moon and back.

Happy Birthday to Ava! I just read her story...WOW! Thank God for modern medicine.
My son had surgery at 6 months old for a inguinal hernia. It was hard to see him in too big hospital pajamas and that big cage looking crib. I can't imagine what it felt like to have your newborn having all those surgeries.

Is there still a need for onesie donations?

Hope you have a great day celebrating Ava!! :)
