aidan's first birthday!!!
remember that oh-so-ill baby we all prayed for last year? the one who was born at 26 weeks and endured open heart surgery - and was in Yale's PICU for 26 weeks???
his parents had a big first birthday bash today - with about 75 people. he is PERFECT. and before we sang the official bday song, his mom made a speech, in which she thanked everyone, including those people she didn't know who prayed and prayed and endured with them.
so i'm passing along her THANK YOU to all of you...
and the birthday boy is CUTE. <pics when i get them, of course!> big brown eyes, active, responsive, on schedule for his full-term birthdate [so he's a wee bit behind, but no big deal]. Auntie Jiff managed to steal him away from his doting grandmother for some snuggle time... we were happy!!!!!
his big brothers dote on him. and they looked very very handsome, all dressed up in nice sweaters and khakis. guess how long they stayed clean??? minutes, of course.
a wonderful day. wonderful people. lovely party. and thank you all for your help...
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
