Jo Jo, it is SO hard to believe it has been a year since you were born. I remember meeting your mommy like it was yesterday. We were just two, brand new moms. who desperately wanted to take our babies home from the hospital. We formed an incredible friendship from a heartbreaking experience. We sat in that little room each night talking about you & Jo (we sort of arranged your marriage but we can talk about all that later), Greys Anatomy, the best chair in the NICU, (which everyone was scared to take from your mother). We talked weight, good days, milliliters, small victories, bad days, & everything you can think of. Some days we barely spoke at all we just checked in on each other. Its so crazy how such a scary experience can bring some incredible people into your life. I hope you know your mommy is one of the strongest women I know & you are so lucky to have her. You are one of the strongest & bravest little boys too. I am so proud of how far you have come & I can’t wait to see how far you will go.
