To end this year’s Prematurity Awareness Month,  I am sharing Charlie’s milestones that we were lucky enough to catch on video. Each one is miraculous. These babies are amazing.

Father’s Day In The NICU. Twenty days old. Sound was removed.

The day Charlie learned to social smile.

The first sound Charlie imitated.

Playing with a duck puppet around Christmas time last year.

Trying to roll over.

The day she finally rolled over (beginning of February).

First swing. One of the benefits of our move.

The day she learned to crawl (almost one year old).

The day she said her first word, “Yay”.

When she first started climbing the stairs.

The first time she saw a Phish show

The moment that she almost took her first step at the library.

And the struggle continues…


About Rebecca Wood

In May 2012, my pregnancy ended three and a half months early due to severe early onset preeclampsia. This is my collection of thoughts and media. It is an attempt to document and discuss our experience of navigating the post NICU world. View all posts by Rebecca Wood
