Happy 2nd Birthday to my first miracle baby!

Today was Olivia's 2nd birthday!! We went to Mall of America this morning and did Build-a-Bear which she LOVED! She picked a dog and a "princess" (ballerina but we called it Princess) outfit and she named her dog Princess (shocker). Then we had a cookie for a snack instead of something healthy. Later in the afternoon, we went to our friend Deanna and Emerson's house for a big birthday play date. There were so many kids there!

Tomorrow morning we're having a small birthday party (with many of the same people from today ha ha) at a park and we're having Mickey Mouse cupcakes. Here are some pictures from today's birthday celebrations and tomorrow, we'll share some more.

I'm so overwhelmed at my luck of having not one, but two, beautiful girls. Each of my girls are miracle babies and we are so blessed to have such amazing children. I thank God that He blessed us with these two girls in spite of the many, many odds that were against us!!

Ella gained 2 ounces and now weighs 3 lbs 4 oz and is on the human milk fortifier every feeding. What a great day!


  1. Congratulations Momma.. you made it to two years :) :)

  2. I'm STILL tired from having so many people over! LOL
