Holiday NICU Goodie Bags

This time last year we were still in the NICU.  I can't even begin to describe how hard the holidays were with having a 3 year old at home and another in the NICU.  Liam actually had a NEC scare in December so I was pretty much a nervous wreck the entire month of December.  One thing that really lifted my spirits was receiving a holiday goodie bag that a fellow NICU mom at EJ made.

My friend Jessica from Thumba-Lea made adorable gifts for those of us who were still in the NICU.  My favorite thing she included was the Dr. Seuss book "Oh, the Places You'll go!".  I just remember being so touched that someone was thinking about the little ones in the NICU and I knew then that I wanted to do something the following holiday season.  So alas, here we are!

I contacted Jessica and told her I would love to follow the tradition and make something for those families still in the NICU this holiday season.  Check out her blog here to see what we included.

My favorite thing that we put in the gifts this year was the Preemie Hang Tag!  You can click here for your free printable!

Thoughts and prayers go out to all the families who have preemies in the NICU.  I hope you all have great homecomings in 2013.
