Trying out the Pumpkin top Hat
This weekend, at the 2007 NICU Reunion Party. Kaitlyn was a bit out of sorts, a shy girl came out with all the commotion of the party, and she was snuggling with me! You won't hear any complaints from mom. I rarely get snuggles. It was great! Of course that rapidly wore off and she was off and running. Here's a picture with Kaitlyn's twin "Ethyn." If you recall, Kaitlyn and Ethyn spent a lot of time together in the nicu. They both lost their twin siblings, and Ethyn's family became very important to us. They just had a new almost full-term baby Michylle. I'm joyous for them!
