Connor's longest-term neighbor in the NICU was his cutie-pie girlfriend, Natalie.
Recently, we were able to get together with her family for dinner... so fun! We really enjoyed comparing NICU/baby notes and talking with another couple who really "get it", as we had virtually the same experience being at the same facility.
It was very interesting to see Connor around another little one his same age... one word - fussy. (We attempted a few photos, but as you can see Connor was in a mood.)
Born just 2 weeks after Connor and 3 ounces heavier, these two kiddos are now within a pound of each other (Connor's the chunk)! Natalie was born 9 weeks early (Connor - 13), and left the NICU after a 2-month stay (Connor - 4-month). You can read more of her journey here.
