I know this is a really really old post... but I was bored and instead of reading on my K1, I was going through old posts on the boards, when I saw this post on a thread about a new sweater you had knitted for Jim. I read this and just wanted to thank you LR for knitting hats for the NICU babies. My son was a NICU baby. He was born 12 weeks premature and weighed 15 ounces at birth. I still have his NICU hat in a storage box and he was so tiny it was SO BIG on his little bitty head.LuckyRainbow said:I need to knock out a few Santa hats for our NICU babies for Christmas. It would not look good if I did not do my part as I am the leader of the project.
I was amazed that these were knit by loving people like yourself who donated the hats. I just wanted you to know (even though I know you didn't knit my munchkin's hat) that your efforts are very much appreciated by parents in the NICU. Here is a picture of my munchkin with his hat on.
I put a warning on the thread, because some people (at work) got upset when I was showing off my preemie baby pics at a March of Dimes fundraiser. They were upset about seeing a baby that small and sick looking. But he's all grown and 8 yrs old now, and this isn't the "worst" of the pics I have, so I hope no one is offended.
