Happy Birthday, Little Guy!!

I can't believe it's already been a full year, but today is indeed Little Guy's first birthday. Every single day I find myself sitting back and thanking a loving Heavenly Father for sending him to us when we really didn't feel ready for another baby. He's the best gift we never knew we wanted.

Little Guy has been far and away our most challenging baby medically and financially. He has challenged us in ways we never could have imagined. As I've documented his progress on this blog over the past year, I've felt so blessed to realize just how resilient he really is. All I can think when it comes to him, is that God must have great plans for him to be having him build such big muscles at such an early age.
So, today will be Little Guy's day. We have a special present for him that will be wrapped in birthday paper, and not Christmas paper. We'll buy him a little cake and a container of banana pudding (his favorite treat) and we'll sing him a traditional birthday tune before letting him make a big mess. And before the day is done, we'll be sure to say a prayer of thanks for letting us have the honor of parenting such a choice spirit.
Happy birthday, Little Guy! We love you!!!!
