2/25/2011 80 Days Old

February 25th, 2011

On the 80th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Me and Maya were able to sleep in till 10:30 this morning. She had a good night. This afternoon Petra from Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep came by to do another photo shoot for Maya. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is a charity that arranges for photographers to take pictures of high risk newborns and still births at the hospital. We haven’t seen Petra since the day Maya was born. She was there to take pictures of Maya while she was in the NICU and after we brought Maya back to our room.

It was good to share our miracle baby with some one who does so much work for so many families like ours. I think it brought a little sunshine into Petra’s day, and that made us happy. Maya is just to special to keep to ourselves. She needs to touch the lives of as many people as possible in her short time with us.  She doesn’t get to see much happy in what she does with NILMDTS but this was a happy moment.  A couple of the images below are ones from today’s shoot.

Maya received some mail today from a friend of Erin’s.  It was from Texas and contained a beautiful letter to Maya and a gorgeous necklace. Maya has touched so many lives, it amazes us how far her reach really is.

This evening Sam and Gayle came over to eat with us and watch a movie.  More of our life like before Maya, but better.  Both of them have held Maya tonight.
