The H Word

Yikes! The H word has been heard around here with increasing frequency!

Should we be worried?

This is hard, that is hard, everything is hard hard hard!

I think we are just resigning ourselves to favoring that adjective, and since it has moved in on squatter's rights, we are putting a new spin on it. Hard is the new good! It is the new black, and we are making it cool.

Here is a brief video of Leo working that H word!

And also fitting in with the theme, Leo's surgery is bumped up to February 6th. We are keeping our fingers and toes, and prayers crossed that this teething/slight congestion/whatever the heck it is will resolve by that time. I am so ready to get this over and done with. This is one of those instances where the anticipation is waaayy worse then the thing itself.  Will it be hard? Yeah. Will it be cool and exciting and worth it? YEAH! Rock on little lion man!

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last. This blog has meant many different things to me over the past seven years, in fact, it has taken as many different manifestations as its subject matter, Leo the little lion! Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
