We didn't take Ava's 7 month photo's on Friday as we were travelling for a friend's wedding. Ava is rolling over both ways and wiggling around everywhere, making a mess at bathtime, having big chats, squealing and laughing. She loves her favourite toys and is very very cheeky. Each day our hearts a little fuller and we are so proud of her hitting her milestones.

Sometimes i wonder what life would be like if she didn't come early and how different things might have been when welcoming a new baby and bringing them home, but i really am grateful to have her home with us and healthy. We got through it and came out the other side stronger and more in love.

I am so appreciative of the medical care that Ava and i received while at the Royal Brisbane and Women's hospital from her consultant, the surgeons, doctors, midwives and nurses. These are the people who make the NICU journey bearable. I almost always felt supported and we knew what was happening every step of the way before Ava was born and afterwards in the nursery. Not enough credit is given to the doctors and nurses and no amount of thank you's will be enough.

Im excited for the next few months as we move into our new home, go away for hubbys birthday and celebrate Ava's first Christmas. After such a bumpy start to the year we deserve the good things too ๐Ÿ’œ x

Our sweet boy is 8 months old today! Harrisonโ€™s hobbies include being held, squealing, gnawing on his hands, sleeping, and being incredible. Our hearts grow more and more each day with the love we have for him. His smile brings us joy and we canโ€™t imagine not knowing him! Thank you, God!

8 months old (4 months corrected) and 14+lbs. She ADORES her siblings and the feeling is mutual. Our miracle baby continues to amaze us everyday. Love you Daisy Lynn! ๐Ÿ’—

Every day is a new struggle with the urge to actually bite these cheeks. Vivienne has gained loads of weight and now we are going full steam with the tube weaning. We are not allowed to give her more than 40ml per feed via the the tube- she has to learn to satisfy hunger by drinking her milk herself! It hasnโ€™t quite clicked yet and she is HANGRY!!

On Fridays, we wear Tink #faithtrustpixiedust #4monthscorrected

This week, Roman had an MRI under general anaesthetic to see what, if any, damage was done when he suffered his Grade 3 & Grade 4 brain bleeds at birth. The doctors wanted to monitor him over night to make sure he was okay after being put to sleep but as you can see, he wasnโ€™t fazed at all ๐Ÿ˜„ #HappyBaby #RomanEllis #MicroPreemie #MRI #24Weeker #EightMonthsOld #4MonthsCorrected

Heโ€™s so confused as to how he got from his belly to his back ๐Ÿ˜‚#startingtoroll #7monthsold #4monthscorrected #love #babyboy #blessed #miracle

This has to be one of my favourite outfits so far ๐Ÿ’• I have been waiting such a long time for Eloise to fit into this dress! ๐Ÿ˜ Does anyone else feel like their bub has a way better wardrobe than them? ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜‚ We had our nurse visit yesterday and after a big gain of 280g in a fortnight this little lady weighed in at exactly 5x her birth weight at 7 1/2 months old ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ™ˆ ๐Ÿ‘ Sheโ€™s still quite little even for her corrected age but thatโ€™s okay, weโ€™ve been tracking along on the same percentile since she came home so Dr Andersen is happy with this ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I had to add some more photos with her premmie doll because itโ€™s just so cute ๐Ÿ’“ and I love that it has her haemangioma on it too ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“ #baby #babygirl #7monthsold #4monthscorrected #growingupsofast #tinybutmighty #thoughshebebutlittlesheisfierce #babystyle #cute #adorable #blueeyes #thoselashes #love #happy #home #adelaide #saturday #weekend #adelaidemums #mumlife #preemie #premmie #haemangioma #hemangioma #hemangiomababy #miraclebaby #29weeker #miraclemumma @miraclemumma #myminimiracle

This little keepsake doll arrived yesterday - it is the exact length and weight Eloise was when she was born ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜
I wasnโ€™t sure how I would feel when I saw this doll and was actually a bit worried that it might bring back memories of the absolute fear I felt for her when I saw her for the first time in NICU and saw how tiny and fragile she was.
Thatโ€™s not what I felt though. I felt so much pride at how strong and determined this little girl of mine is and I only wished that in the moment that I saw her in her isolette for the first time that I had known this about her because then I wouldnโ€™t have been so scared. Iโ€™ve said it before and Iโ€™ll say it again - Iโ€™m never going to stop being proud of how far Eloise has come from that little tiny Lolly Dolly I met in NICU ๐Ÿ’• And Iโ€™ll never stop being grateful for the doctors and nurses who helped her grow big and strong ๐Ÿ˜Š
Ps I love the look of surprise on Eloiseโ€™s face when I told her this is how tiny she was ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚ #baby #babygirl #premmie #preemie #prematurebaby #premmiepower #tinybutmighty #thoughshebebutlittlesheisfierce #nicubaby #nicugrad #nicu #scbu #tripdownmemorylane #7monthsold #4monthscorrected #proudmummy #love #happy #home #adelaide #adelaidemums #haemangioma #hemangioma #hemangiomababy #miraclebaby #miraclemumma @miraclemumma #29weeker #myminimiracle ๐Ÿ’•
