I dont think any of us will ever leave the NICU behind. It kinda becomes part of who you are, know what I mean?

We had the same thing happen on Maggie's bday. This Friday she is officailly home 1 year and we are giddy. So it does get better but it will haunt you a bit for a while.

Aww Happy Birthday!!! She is adorable.<br><br>
One day the hurt from the NICU will ease a little but it will always remain. You will never forget those days and for that you will be a stronger parent

Congrats and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!<br><br>
I had a very rough time dealing with the whole 8 week NICU stay for my twins. They were born 10 weeks early, very healthy but I just hated the experience! Their first birthday was a milestone but the anniversary of the day they came home from the NICU was a better overall feeling for me then their birthday. It felt like it was "right" and we had come full circle with them. Maybe once that birthday rolls around, you will feel a little better as well.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SYDNEY!!!<br><br>
She is adorable<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> and I LOVE the ladybug cupcakes!<br><br>
Great job, mama, for getting through the first year! Sometimes I think it's a bigger accomplishment for us NICU mamas than for anyone else... nobody understands what it's like to live through that first year and have such a wonderful, joyous, beautiful toddler at the end like we do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> . At least nobody in my world "gets" it...
