These 2 items gave me a real reality check on how far we have come, or should I say, Ellie has come from when she was born. The socks were actually Baby Bjorn doll socks and her hospital bracelet was not much bigger than a 5 cent coin.
It made me think back to that day over 3 years ago, when when Ellie was born. Nothing could have prepared us for that day. We had a baby born at 1.8kgs (under 4lbs) who was to small for 000000 clothes, premmie nappies went half way up her back, and we were also shocked to find out that she was also born with one eye. If I look back at photos I remember that time clearly, but there is also allot that I don't remember due to the shock of the situation....
However fast forward 3 years, and we now have a beautiful, cheeky, funny little girl.. Who wears size 1 clothes, is moving around on her bottom, is very switched on, loves life... and continues to amaze us.
How far we have come...!!
And how much we have learnt... Not only about Ellie but also about ourselves.
