He’s a cute little booger, if I do say so myself! 

This picture was taken last year at St. Vincent’s Annual NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Reunion Picnic with one of our primary care nurses, Nataline.   This year will make our 3rd year in attendance to one of our favorite highlights of the summer.  We feel incredibly blessed to be invited guests of this celebration of miracles.  We are certain that God used doctors, nurses, and therapists in preserving our boys’ lives nearly 2 1/2 years ago and look forward to reuniting with those who cared for us in our greatest time of need.

    The Ash girls hope to make it too, but they will be flower girls in a wedding the night before, so I'm remaining non-committal!

    After our own stint in the NICU recently, we just want to say what a miracle your boys are.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Didn't I tell you there was a Murray Man on that invite? There is another family on there I recognize too.

    Hope to see your team in August at the big party!
