NICU Mini-Reunion :)

This past Saturday was so much fun for us!  We got to travel to Lebanon for a 1st birthday party that was definitely a celebration of life!  Sweet Johannah was across from Addie in the NICU, and she is such a precious miracle!  We had such a great time visiting with Jojo's family and Cooper's family (he was by us in the NICU, too!) outside of the hospital!  It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we were all sitting by our babies' bedsides talking, praying, and wishing for the days when we would all be home with our children. :)  God is so good.

 Johannah and Addie meet again!

 Pretty birthday girl!

 My favorite little man, Cooper!

 Jojo and her cake... she looks like she's going to blow out the candle!

 Addie reaching for Cooper! :)

 Trying to taste him :) ha

 Addie and Jojo "talking."  They had a special bond in the NICU... they copied each other all the time!  One would scoot to the bottom of the bed... then the other would do the same.  If one had her hands up, so did the other one!  It was so funny to watch them!

 The paparazzi took lots of pictures of these three miracles!

 I just love them all!

 We tried to get a shot of them on their tummies, but Addie was having nothing to do with it!  This picture cracks me up!  She hates... and I mean HATES... tummy time!  Obviously.

 Here's sweet Cooper.  He was born in November of 2009.  He is the oldest of the three and definitely the most handsome. :)  Yes, he is really that cute in person!

 Sweet Johannah was born in December of 2009.  She is just adorable!  Her beautiful eyelashes are amazing!

...and the baby of the bunch, Addie.  I think I can say that she is the loudest. :)  ...and, in my opinion, the cutest! ha

I am SO thankful we had the chance to get together with these families!  They are such a blessing to us!  Can't wait for the next gathering!
