Building a Family: NICU Vacation

Before I start, I wanted to apologize to anyone who was following this series on how my family grew to be from how Ashlee and I met to the birth of my children. I had to take a couple days break due to taking a sudden road trip to Arkansas for a funeral. I was away from my computer, tired from the events/drive, and couldn’t concentrate on writing. For that, I am sorry. Please don’t hate me too much. I’ll buy you an icecream or something to make up for it. And the saga continues!! You’d think after the birth of my two oldest, that we’d be done right? Wrong. It turns out, either I’m really potent, she’s immune to birth control, or God wanted to have a laugh at our expense. We had Elijah in 2008 at 32 weeks, and Emma was born 2011 at 30 weeks. They were both born via C-Section, and kept in the NICU. I lump these two together because anyone who has ever met them automatically assumes they are twins. They do everything together. If I ever separate the two, they talk about each other during the whole parting. Elijah has developmental delays both...
