Three Little Birds...

Today I got the tattoo I've been wanting for a while! Three little birds -- yes, like the Bob Marley song. Specifically, me and Lea's song.

This is the song I'd sing to her when I held her in the NICU, and that I still sing to her now. It reminds me that no matter what, everything will be okay because I have my wonderful little family. The three of us...

It will be my reminder to not worry so much and to not sweat the small stuff. 

I wanted to write more, but as I sit miss muffin is sitting in my lap squeazing my face and trying to type, so I'll let her have her moment:

Its me again. Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure the above says "I love mommy."  

Until next time...


  1. Your blog has helped me through the tough times my daughter was born at 28 weeks in april 2012 and I found your blog a little after she was born and it really has lifted me up in the whole preemie process. She is growing every day and is super strong she is now 4 1/2 months but adjusted to 7 weeks at almost 12 lbs (she loves to eat!. So Thank you for sharing your journey! also LOVE the tattoo
