Make My Day Pink, For Bella's Sake



Today, my dearest friend Debbie is having a (virtual) baby shower for her little miracle grand baby...Bella Marie!!! I just couldn't help myself from celebrating too!!!!!

There are many reasons to celebrate such as...

* Debbie is a new grandmother

* Jenn & Roby are parents for the first time

* Bella weighed under one pound at birth and defied all odds of staying with us

*And many new friendships were made because of this little bundle of joy!!!!!

So in preparation of her coming home soon, I've gathered a few of the things that I love the most...

Baby Ephemera!

Just so precious.

My granddaughter was a preemie. She weighed 3 15oz. was born at 32 weeks. She is 11 now & a whopping 100 pounds. She was a fighter. She came home at 4 lbs. 1oz. Which truly was a challenge.

What a joy it will be to watch her grow & get healthier & strong!

God is so good.

I knew you would be clever, but that birth announcement...I LOVE it!!! I just sit here crying my fool eyes out. You touched on everything about Bella that is a miracle from just her being born to the wonderful friends I have now because of it. Thank you so much. I'm not going to go all wacky(you know that is my new favorite word now, right?) on you because my heart is just too full for that!

Those are wonderful pictures you've posted. Sweet little Bella Marie. My sister was under 2 pounds at birth and remained in the hospital for three months. That was in 1961 - thank goodness technology has improved so much since that time. My sister, named tiny Tina by the nurses, came home in doll clothing!
