Our Little Man is One

Happy Birthday Owen!

A year ago I was lying in the most uncomfortable bed, waiting to meet you, and today you are our little bundle of energy.

Funny how the first days you were home, we were all worried because you were jaundice, and had to be on a bili blanket, and we thought things would get easier as soon as you were better.  Little did we know that the trip to the ER for a low temperature would lead to the discovery of more serious health issues, and the first of your four hospital stays in the next 6 months.

You were always a trooper, and fought through the infection, RSV, and Bronchiolitis all before having your Open heart surgery in May.  Those first six months were hard, and scary, but these last six months have been nothing but amazing.  We have gotten to watch you grow, get stronger, and blossom into one of the most fun toddlers I know. 

I am so excited to see you learn and grow even more in the next year.
