Yesterday was World Prematurity Day and as expected, I shared one of my most favorite pictures of one of my most favorite preemies.
When he was just one pound, we would nest him using two beanie babies, two lions…and yes, I would call this Daniel in the lions den because…c’mon!
But yes, in recognition of World Prematurity Day and the mightiest, strongest humans I know, I share a picture of the strongest and mightiest one in my heart. The one who calls me Mom.
He and his lions have come so far, so very far, nearly fourteen years later.
There may come a day where he finds posing with his beanie babies that once covered his tiny, one pound body to be tiresome.
Today is not that day.
