One Month Old!


Birthday // One Week // One Month


Birthday // One Week // One Month

To my sweet babies,

Today you are one month old! Yall are going to read this one day and not get why one month deserves an exclamation point but it so deserves one, if not more than one - I'm showing restraint here.

Look at how much you two have grown since you were born! At one month, you are still on your vents (but there has been talk of trying you off them soon!), your feedings are being increased almost daily and you have both gained more than a pound from your birth weight! Your personalities are really starting to shine and it makes me giggle at how different you already are. Grayson, you are going to be so laid back, just like your daddy, and Audrey, well... they call you Sassy for a reason!

The last 31 days have been terrifying, stressful, wonderful, incredible... there are no words that can adequately describe how I've felt. But I will tell you this: the two of you have captured my heart, wholly and completely. You barely weigh five pounds combined but the weight of your presence in my life is undeniable - my universe has shifted, tilted, and is now centered entirely around you.

Audrey and Grayson, I am infinitely proud of you, of how hard you are fighting and how strong you have proven to be already. I cannot wait for many many many more months together.

I love you two, all the way to the moon and back-

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again -Jer. 31:3-4


  1. Aww, sweet babies! Happy One Month!

  2. Praises to a great GOD for making your babies grow. Yeah Audrey & Grayson--keep it up sweetie-pies<3

  3. What a journey! I heard your story through a friend and wanted to shout out to you. I am the mom of a 24 week baby boy, so I know what a journey this is. It's going to be scary and will seem to never end. There will be bad days but good days will come too. We spent 4 months in the hospital and had many many days on the vent, cpap and then the cannula. We had two surgeries (hernia and PDA) and a lot of other things along the way. He started out at 1 lb 10 oz but was over 8 lbs when he came home. It was the hardest thing I ever faced but we relied on faith and he made it through. He is now 8 months ( actual) 15 poundsand is off all meds and just on a small amount of oxygen. Developmentally he is right on track with his adjusted age. Stay strong and just know there is light at the end of the tunnel. God bless all of you. You are all in my prayers! Julie Pasma
