Emolyn's 5!

Mimi & Emolyn @ 1 month

Five years ago today this little girl made me a grandma. See, I'm already crying ;)

Emolyn weighed 2lbs.7oz. and practically perfect in every way. 
She required no machines, except a feeding tube, because sucking expended too much energy. So she had her Mamma's milk through a feeding tube and then after 5 weeks in the NICU, she went home weighing 3 1/2 lbs!
She is nothing short of a miracle and I thank God every day for her!

Randy & I made her a balance beam for her birthday and wow, she is quite the gymnast!

Oh, and the bestest big sister ever!

Happy Birthday Emolyn Kate Thompson!
