3 years ago today, our boy was born much too early, weighing only 15 ounces.

[1 day old]

Against all odds, he survived.

[1st time being held at 5 1/2 weeks old.]

He turned 1.

He turned 2.

And now, before our very eyes, he has grown into a kid. I cannot believe he is 3.YEARS.OLD!

Our hearts are so full this day. Though 3 years ago, this day with filled with fear and worry as our children were coming too soon, that's not how we live. June 10th is a happy day. A day of celebration. A day when we put on our best clothes and pull out the good dishes. It's the day Lucia, Bennet, Tryg, Lincoln, Sylas and Cadence were born.

It's the day they lived.

Happy Birthday!


  1. Happy Birthday to Lucia, Bennet, Tryg, Lincoln, Sylas and Cadence! Heaven is ROCKIN' today, I hope you guys are rockin' it too. :)
    Have a beautiful day!

    P.S. Love your new site! I also saw you have an Etsy site now??? I just set mine up a few days So much fun!

  4. Happy 3rd Birthday Lucia, Bennet, Tryg, Lincoln, Sylas, and Cadence!

    Sylas truly is a precious miracle! I've been "following" your family/story since the day after your babies were born. It's so hard to believe 3 years have come and gone already!

    Praying for you and your family today as you celebrate your beautiful children! I like how you put it..."It's the day Lucia, Bennet, Tryg, Lincoln, Sylas and Cadence were born. It's the day they lived." That is so true!

    God bless you!

    (And by the way, I LOVE your new blog design!)

  5. Oh, happy day!!!

    What a miracle Sylas is. Happy birthday handsome dude!

    Sending warm thoughts your way.

    Also, I just saw this, a woman in Ohio gave birth to sextuplets today (or possibly yesterday, the article was from today). Google Mia McGhee if you're interested in reading the article(s).

    God Bless all of you on this joyous day!

    PS, LOVE the new look! It's so bright and cheery!

    I don't think I've shared with you that I have a nephew that was born at 25 weeks, weighing 1 lb. 3 oz. It was so hard at first but know he's doing well at age 17. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.
