PREEMIES AND PARENTS OF THE DAY

         JaeNece Walker was born December 30,2004. She was due April 20,2005!! By the grace of God my baby made it to this world. She didn’t have many complications but she did have jaundice and trouble breathing. She stayed on oxygen for 21 days. She came home on day 47!!! The only side effects she has is that she wears glasses her sight is terrible and she has asthma due to lungs being under developed!! She is definitely a blessing!!

TUESDAYS TIPS FOR FATHERS

IMG_9995Learn to swaddle. Remember, a preemie is still “supposed” to be in the womb! Because of this, They will probably like to be held snugly. Be careful not to wrap too tight, though. The nurse’s can help you master the swaddle technique. My daughter spent the first eight months of her life with a onesie, and a swaddling blanket!

There are many things we can learn and apply to our lives that can learn from the little people, PREEMIES!
One day a friend of mine came by to talk and to clear is head. Apparently there were something’s troubling him and taking a toll on him. Twenty minutes later after playing with Maddie he said ” Wow, it’s amazing how this little girl keeps a smile on her face” I interrupted him and said what do you mean? He continued to say. After all she’s been through she still has the biggest smile I ever seen. I said she’s just happy to be here! After saying that I realized we as adults need to have that same profound attitude when it comes to our life! When we display the notion that we are happy to be here everything in our personal lives will change. Regardless of all the other obstacles and challenges we go through, it can change. I remember Zig Ziglar said “Change Your Attitude Change Your Life”. So today create a different vantage point and look and feel different when it comes to your life!
