Lovelace Women’s Hospital and The March of Dimes put on their 7th annual NICU Reunion on Saturday.

The event is held for babies and children who started out life in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Babies from the past 3 years who started out in the NICU got to play games and have fun at a carnival.

Scott and Jennifer Gross’s son, Jayden, weighed just over 3 pounds when he was born.

Jayden went to the NICU immediately.

"Going through the NICU, you're there 24 hours a day just wanting to see what your child is doing and make sure that your child is okay.  The nurse staff and the doctors, everybody is just so friendly, it becomes like a family,” said Jennifer Gross.

The event was held in the parking lot at Lovelace Women’s Hospital on Montgomery.
