Happy 1st Birthday, Brayden!!


I am so blessed to be your Mommy. You light up my days with your smiles and snuggles. Daddy can't get enough of you and Jackson...well, he just adores you. I feel so lucky that God chose me for you because you are an amazing little guy. You are funny, clever, strong-willed and sweet. I can't wait to watch you grow! But can you slow down a little bit?

I love you to the moon and back a hundred million times,

Since we are still in the hospital, we celebrated the best we could given our situation. Of course it wasn't optimal, but our little family was together to celebrate and that is all we need!

We had donuts for breakfast and later left Gram to sit with Jack at the hospital (who thankfully slept most of the time we were gone) while we took the birthday boy to eat and to Toys R Us. He had a cupcake once we got back to our room. I know he won't remember at all, but I knew I would regret it if we didn't make an effort to make his birthday a little special.

  1. Happy Happy Birthday Brayden!! I'm happy y'all got to spend the day together and celebrate some!

  2. I am glad that you got some birthday time with Brayden. I am very happy to see that Jackson got to ride around in his wheelchair. Jason, Wes, and Wade think wheelchairs are the best toys ever. Big boys can do some pretty scary tricks with wheelchairs. Love and hugs...

  3. What a special day for him! It's amazing how much Brayden looks like you and Jackson looks like his daddy...LOL.

  4. Happy Birthday, Brayden!

    They do grow so fast, I wish there was a way we could slow them down. ;-)

    I am sure he had the best birthday. Especially consdering all of the love he was surrounded with!

    And I am so relieved to see Jackson moving his left arm... All of the pictures make me happy. XXOO
