Lindy’s Special Day Observed

Sunday, December 19th marked three years since Lindy came home from the NICU.  After 143 days in three different hospitals, Duke finally discharged her to us, just in time for Christmas!  Will had been home for about 6 weeks and we were SO ready for her to come join our family.

She went from a 1 pound 9 ounce nuggetDSCN0891to about a 6 pound baby in 143 days (I can’t find the actual weight right now).DSCF2346We were so excited for her to come home!DSCF2357And get to really ‘meet’ her brother!DSCF2370

We celebrated her ‘special day’ today by going to the Children’s Museum in Greensboro.  It was really nice and the kids had a blast.  They had all kinds of really neat things to climb in and out of.  An airplane cockpit, a train, a real fire truck, a real police car, a real race car, and then just tons more to play with.

A fun day was had by all.  I don’t think Lindy really got why it was her special day but I hope she had fun.
