I love coming into the girls’ room in the morning and finding surprises. Today, we had lots of new surprises, including new nameplates for the girls’ monitors and their birth certificates, complete with tiny hand and foot prints. We’d already been given a copy of their foot prints, but it’s nice to have everything together. It will be amazing to show the girls how small they once were.
My plan is to take all the mementos – teeny tiny diapers, hospital bracelets, and the keepsakes the nurses make, and create a lovely NICU memory box that we can show the girls as they get older. Their big brother also painted them a beautiful picture that I’ll be sure to include as well.
