My sweet little man turned one today! I sat down to write this post for him very excited, but as I type, I'm filled with mixed emotions.
At this time last year, I had known my sweet boy for just a few hours (5 hours, but as he was in the NICU and I was exhausted and drugged, it was much less than that at this time last year). By this time, everyone had left the hospital, exhausted as well after waiting 24 hours for his arrival. Chris and I were settled in my hospital room with our new little bundle and amazed by the wonder of him. He was so tiny.
That sweet baby now weighs close to 24 pounds and can ride his electric 4-wheeler that Uncle TJ and Auntie Storm got him for his birthday ALL-BY-HIMSELF. He is the happiest baby I have ever seen, smiling at anyone who will look his way.
Everyday has been better than the last since December 24, 2008. Happy Birthday my sweet little man!
