Happy 5th Birthday Baylee!

I cannot believe my little Baylee turns 5 today! It seems like yesterday that I was laying at Willow Creek waiting for her to be born. Praying like crazy that everything would be okay and her lungs would be fully developed. She was born at 32 weeks weighing 3lbs 12oz. She spent 3 weeks in the NICU and came home only weighing 4lbs 5oz. She spent 6 months on a heart monitor.

I always knew she would be okay. Even when she was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension last year... I knew she would be just fine.

She is a sweet girl and I'm so proud that she is mine. She has brought such joy to our lives!

Baylee 2 weeks old - NICU



At home... see how tiny she was... this mini-swing swallowed her!
2 days old... we were doing kangaroo care. I love this picture because you can't see all the tubes and wires coming out of her!
5 months old... first beach trip to Gulf Shores, AL
Zoo last year - 4 1/2 years old



Pics last year - 4 1/2 years old



I love you Baylee with all my heart! Happy 5th Birthday!

She is gorgeous as always... so happy that she is doing great. I still amaze myself how quickly they grow into regular weight. Both of my girls were under 6lbs when they left the hospital and if you see them today you would never think it LOL time happens I guess.
You are blessed.
Sorry I have not been by in awhile hands been twisted in knots lately.

So happy Mommiversary to you Mommy of 5yrs :)
