My baby turned one today.
I've been close to tears all day. It seems like not long ago, our lives looked like this:
This was him a year ago.
He was born a preemie. I got to hold him for about 10 seconds after I had him. Long enough to take this picture, then they whisked him off to the Newborn ICU. My husband really got the short shrift, I don't think he had a chance to even touch him.
The next 2 weeks were tough. The smooth birth and healthy baby we were expecting didn't happen. That was hard. And, um, so were the next 6 months or so. We made it, though!
What a cutie. I wouldn't change a thing about this year. It's been a big learning experience.
Seriously. How stinking cute is he?
I just love my little guy. Wouldn't trade him for anything. Happy birthday, baby!
