On this date one year ago Katie Rose came home from the hospital. You can see her in today’s photo smiling and happy, and eating a graham cracker. Actually, she gums the cracker because she doesn’t have any teeth yet—and does a pretty good job of it. She is full of life, and a great member of our family.
One year ago she looked a bit like a stuffed piglet in her car seat (no offense Katie Rose, see the photo below, shown in the same car seat as above, you can use as a growth comparison). Here’s the story about Katie Rose coming home from the NICU. At that point, we were still in shock, a little less so now.
What a difference a year makes!
