Today

In a short few hours Shazam and I will be leaving to pick Ella up. I can hardly believe that this day has finally come. We have come such a long way in the last 68 days. My little 30 weeker is now almost 6lbs. She was such a skinny feisty little thing when she was born, now she is a chubby baby with two chins and rolls on her legs. I will write more later perhaps we will have a guest blogger this afternoon. Thanks to all who have been on this ride with us. I am excited beyond words and want to get into the car now even though we don't leave for 2.5 hours.

I found your blog when googling home-midwife-IUI- and somehow found you. I have been reading your blog since pre-conception and have then followed Ella's course throught the NICU. Being a NICU nurse myself I found your words to offer great insight. Congratulations to you both on bringing baby Ella home and I wish you many happy years to come.
