Mommy to a Beautiful Miracle

I haven't been on here in FOREVER! In that time, we were able to get pregnant with a gorgeous baby girl that we named Lillian Marie.
She was born July 11th 2010 at 4lbs 4ozs and 17 inches. I had to be induced 6 weeks early because I developed preeclampsia and had to spend 12 days in the NICU before we could bring her home. After the journey we had to take to get pregnant, a complicated pregnancy, and watching her fight in the NICU, I believe now more than ever that she is truly a miracle.
Lily is now 8 months old! :) She is crawling, babbling, feeding herself and standing on her own! Everything that the doctors said she would do later than a normal, full term, baby she is doing earlier instead! She amazes us each and every day. She has blown her doctors away! Many babies don't crawl till they are 9 months, they told us not to expect it till she is at least 10 months, and she amazed them all by doing it at 7 1/2 months! I'm excited to see what each day brings. She is still measuring small, I believe at her last appointment she was still only 14 lbs and 9 ozs at 7 months. She will be turning 9 months soon and she is in 3-6 months clothes still. But she may be small in size but she makes up for it in personality!
