Happy World Prematurity Day

Approximately nineteen months ago, these tiny humans came into our lives much earlier than expected, and much sooner than nature intended. Weighing in at under 1000 grams (roughly two pounds each), these little bodies had to learn how to breathe, how to feed, and how to regulate their own body temperature. They spent the first sixty-five days of their lives in the hospital, and we will be forever grateful for the NICU nurses and doctors who took care of them as well as the friends and family who took care of us during that time. Jack, Henry, and Sophie amaze us every day, and we sometimes forget all they went through to get here. Today, we remember. Happy World Prematurity Day.
