NICU Reunion 2011

This past Sunday we attended St. Peter's annual NICU reunion. We were so excited to see some of our favorite nurses and doctors, as well as some of our old friends.

Charlie and Lily with Daddy, getting ready to head inside.
Chatting with Dr. Hiatt, the head neonatologist. Lily freaked when she saw him - I think she remembers freaking when he examined her at her last clinic appointment. Must be a trend. Dr. Hiatt worked very hard to win her over though, and before we left for the day she rewarded his efforts with a smile and a high-five (which she followed by applauding for herself).
Lily catching up with her good pal, Nurse Julia.
Charlie and his NICU nighttime buddy, Nurse Sue.
Lots of cookies were consumed at this reunion. Hey, it was a celebration, right?
Charlie and his NICU roomie, Ethan. Charlie and Ethan, a 23 weeker, shared an isolation room for about two months during their NICU stay.
With Ethan and his family.
The reunion took place 12:00 - 4:00 in the afternoon, smack in the middle of nap time. Miss Lily can NOT skip a nap. By 2:15 she was clinging to me, crying, and falling asleep on my shoulder.
Charlie, on the other hand, could have partied all day long!
