80 Days

Despite knowing the girls would be born early, I had no idea how hard it would be. I really thought they would just be little and would just need time to grow.

Now, when I look back at where we started, it seems like it was so long ago. Ella in particular has come so far and become so strong. There are pictures we chose not to share because of how sick she looked, but as I put together the pictures for the Flipagram, I almost couldn’t remember those days, even though at the time, it felt like we would never see the end.

The girls were in Sunnybrook’s NICU for 80 days. 80 days of packing my bags to go and see them. 80 nights away from them, calling to check how they were doing. 80 days of tears and laughter. 80 days feeling incomplete. 80 days of watching them grow and become beautiful baby girls. 80 days of uncertainty. Now, we only have the future together, but what an incredible, and often scary, start to our journey.

  1. Ok, I’m a little more than obsessed with your blog. Today we celebrate our five year anniversary of our Discharge Day. My heart feels full-to-bursting with joy, hope and encouragement for you, and for all the mamas saying goodbye (as much as they can) to the hospital and hello to this next chapter.

  2. Wow! My heart goes out to you, I cannot imagine what that is like. I was so blessed that I had to be induced with my twins at 38+4. But it is a great story since it has a happy ending 🙂
