Picture 229i'm pooped after a long night of trick-or-treating.  we didn't really walk around and go trick-or-treating but i helped mommy pass out candy at gigi and papa's house and got to see everyone in their costumes.  papa had the house decorated all spooky and i loved it.  i think it's safe to say that halloween is one of my favorite holidays after seeing the loot some of the kids were hauling away.

    Hi, I found you through Nie’s blog, I am so glad you requested the post you did. One day last week I sat and read on Stephanie’s blog about all day, that post was one of my favorites, that quote
    ” One perfect day down, millions more to go ” was just so amazing.
    So glad your daughter is doing so well….

    i found you on nie’s blog as well. i am a special educator, and i’m just writing to say YEA!!! your little darling is bright-eyed and bushy tailed, and that is a miracle! she looks well and happy…and for that, you can be so grateful…it doesn’t always turn out that well for the micro preemies. many continued blessings to you and your family!

    Hi Adali and family!
    I’m from Nie’s place too! :)
    First of all, what a beautiful name! My husband and I have already chosen the name Adelaide for a future daughter, now I might change it a little, heehee
    Second of all, I think I can (kind of) relate to your family. My cousins (a set of twins, boy and girl) were born via c-section at 28 weeks, they were both just over 1 pound each. they spent the first 4 months of their little lives fighting so hard. baby boy finally was discharged, but baby girl had a huge fight in front of her, she ended up staying in hospital for over a year. but now i am so happy to tell you that they are both happy and healthy and almost 4 years old. and so cute! while baby girl has some developmental delays and was diagnosed with cerebal palsy, she is taking life by storm and impressing everyone including the doctors who didn’t think she would walk or talk (she uses a walker like a pro and chatters all day long). i love them so much! it was a heartbreaking time for our family, but now it’s just a fantastic story about the strength of children!
    also, i’d like to say YES! to your post about vaccinating your children. I totally support this and plan on vaccinating my children too. :)
    looking forward to catching up on the rest of your blog and updates on darling Adali!
