Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy! Can you believe it's been a whole year! The past 365 days have been some of the best in my life! I never thought I could love a tiny little guy this much but he has stolen my heart!

If you would have asked me a year ago if I thought he would have grown this much I would probaby have said..."yes! my God is that good!"
I can still remember the moment he was born. The doctor joked and said..."Whoa! He's huge!" Then she told me he had a cleft lip. I had no idea what she was talking about but she wasn't freaking out and neither was Tony. So, I knew everything would be ok! Then came time for the surgery. What a big disappointment we had only to find out that God had bigger plans.
Our first surgery was canceled because of his age. We were so disappointed because we were being moved to another hospital and our doctor couldn't go there. So he referred us to a friend of his and WOW! Dr. Wallace was sent from God! Within a week we were scheduled for surgery and it went amazing. You can see from the pictures above that he did an awesome job! The best part of that whole experience is that we all became closer as a family and we definantly got closer to God.

The next major event...our friends the Isbell's moved to Brazil. As a matter of fact...they left just 4 days after the surgery! Man, God always has a plan doesn't he? The next few months just fly by...Halloween...Thanksgiving...Christmas...Even the New Year comes and goes. Any still my baby boy continues to Grow! And now...I sit here on the eve of his first birthday and think to myself...Wow...I am the most blessed mother on earth! I have an Awesome God...a wonderful husband...and the two most beautiful boys that anyone could ever want. So Happy Birthday my Sweet Prince! I love you more than you'll ever know. I hope the next year holds as much excitement and joy that you have given me.
