Congrats to Preemie Babies 101 contributor Kayla Aimee on the release of her new book, Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexptected! Enter to win one of 3 copies and a beautiful print! #giveaway   #NICU  
The heart of my story centers on my journey to motherhood, the one in which I found myself joyfully pregnant after years of infertility only to then give birth unexpectedly at just 25 weeks. We named her Scarlette and she weighed one pound, eight point six ounces. And even though she weighed less than six sticks …

I love these 2015 planner options from +Corrin Foster!
 
The biggest decision you'll make all year...which 2015 planner to choose.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Time to decide on your 2015 planner! Are you particular about your planners? Do you have a favorite?

I'm the new Online Community Coordinator for local nonprofit Hand to Hold! So much inspiring info from this #NICU  community. 
Born as a preemie with a tracheal esophegal fistual (TEF), this professor didn't know what his parents endured for his health until the birth of his son.

I'm so sorry, Tracey. Letting go of a pet is so hard.
In the fall of 1995, I had had a really crappy day. Like, WHOA, shitty-shitty, crappy. To be honest, I cannot remember why. It might have been that the classes I was taking at the community college weren't all quite as inspiring as their paragraph descriptions in the course booklet led them to ...

So we can either sit with our fear, give up blogging all together, or we can act in ways that offer us more privacy than we have right now. I thought it would be worthwhile to list a few steps I've taken and a few I plan on taking to ensure the most privacy and safety for myself as a woman on the Internet with an opinion that I can in hopes that it might help other people do the same. We've seen that this is necessary time and time again.

Plenty of seating so you don't feel rushed to finish that fried avocado taco. And bonus: there's a playscape just around the shopping center so kids can burn off some energy while parents sit and moan over having eaten too much delicious queso.

Great place to bring your four legged friends. I only wish there were bathrooms. Portapotties even! But there are some heavily trees areas. Do what you will with that information.

Huge outdoor seating area with live music and great food. Kids can play on the playscapes while parents relax with a beer.
