Sadie’s Backstory

When I was pregnant we found out Sadie had Gastroschisis, a condition where the intestines are outside of the abdominal wall. This required major surgery after she was born and lots of recovery time for her intestines to “restart” so she could eat. On top of that, she was born eight weeks early. These two factors made it so her first twelve weeks of life were in the NICU.
Sadie has since made a full recovery and has a beautifully made belly button. She still runs on the small side of the growth chart and strangers are always surprised when I tell them her age, but she is catching up quickly so watch out world!
