I made her mini cookie and cream sandwiches resembling cookie monster for her first birthday. I can't wait for her to see it. She loves cookies.
Today is my Leilani's first birthday. She surprisingly came 2 months early, premature. It was such a quick delivery. She had been through so much beginning of her life. I never got to hold her the day she was born. Those 2 hours when she stopped breathing, we thought we lost her. It was mind blowing that she had this illness, we never knew, and had to have surgery 3 days after she was born. I had been through this before with Rebecka, it was a little different with Leilani because we never expected this. Just being beside her, watching her through this glass over her bed, medical wires, feeding tube, such a tiny baby with all these things while slowly healing from her surgery. It was heart breaking that I couldn't hold her and comfort her. She is my little miracle. I'm so thankful for those surgeons and nurses at Ullevål hospital for fixing and taking wonderful care of her. I will always be thankful. Without them she wouldn't be here. Now she is healthy, happy, beautiful 1 year old girl. I'm sad that she is not a baby anymore. Happy 1st Birthday to my Leilani!
