We've come a long way from the NICU and are growing up fast. We are reading, learning Spanish, and doing all the things 7 year-old-girls love to do. We start 2nd grade next week!
A GiFT Super Hero turns 6 years old this week! This happy, healthy six year old spent 196 day in the NICU after he was born. Thanks for being a part GiFT family!
His mom had this to say: "We'll never ever forget you guys!! Wow how time flies, it seems just like yesterday I bought him home from the NICU!! GiFT has been such a blessing to my family and so many others. We truly appreciate the gift of GiFT. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE & CONTINUE TO DO!! I included a few pictures so please share them amongst our gift family!"
Hi, December is my birthday month and I'm turning two years old! I'm still in the hospital but doing well. I'm working on changes with my breathing tube.
Guess who turns three this month? These three!
We are all on target or advanced in all areas of development! Everyone is doing great!
We turned 1 year old! GiFT was honored to have been a part of the celebration. We can't wait to see more.
I celebrated my first Birthday in the hospital then FINALLY got to go home with my family when I was about 13 months old. Things are really different at home and so much better! I get to be closer to my big brothers and Mom & Dad all the time now. I keep getting bigger and stronger, I weigh 20 pounds and am 23 inches tall. Can you believe I only weighed 1 pound, 1 ounce when I was born? I've been through a lot and know that I'm loved and special :)
We've come a long way, we each weighed about two pounds when we were born and stayed in the NICU for the first three months of our lives. It was a difficult time for our family but now, we're stylish and sweet (nearly) 3-year-old girls! We can't wait to start school in August this year.
Turning two must be the easiest thing you've had to do,
I just blinked my eyes, and it happened to you.
Seems like the days just go speeding right by,
Why, you'll probably turn three in the wink of an eye.
So let's take time to celebrate your birthday today,
And cherish this moment before it slips fast away.
This guy! I know shapes, and colors, and how to count to 10. I learn new words all the time. I still have a special tube in my belly to help me grow but I'm learning how to eat new foods every day.
Yep, that's right, we're about to turn two years old and we LOVE to play at the park!
I'm growing up! For my First Birthday, my parents asked our friends to make a donation to GiFT instead of getting me presents. They're the best!
August 2012: I’m growing up fast, already celebrated my first Birthday. I weigh 14 pounds and only have to wear oxygen when I sleep! I’ve grown 2 teeth and am learning how to eat by mouth. Hopefully, I won’t need this tube in my belly any more!
