NICU Picnic

As the twins birthday rapidly approaches it is never far from our minds what a miracle they are. There is always a risk when pregnant but for obvious reasons the risks that go along with multiples is also much higher. Although our babies only had a 16 day stay in the NICU, we are very aware that we were blessed and lucky that Bodie and Annelise are healthy and happy babies. As we walked around the annual picnic hosted by St. Lukes we saw the babies that are still on oxygen and others that are still so very small. It was a great chance for us to be reminded of how fortunate we are.
While we were there we were able to visit with one of our favorite nurses Julie and her son William. She also has boy/girl twins and was a great support for us while at St. Lukes. The twins also got to hang out with fellow twin friends Corbin and Zane. Two very cute boys! Lastly, they also had a great time trying out the slide and swings. The night was an overall hit and we are grateful for such good times with our babies. Lucy, as always, was the biggest hit of the night! Kids were way more interesed in her but then again she's use to that!
