Munchkin's Birthday Cupcake

This is the video of Robbie's Birthday cupcake on his actual birthday.  He didn't sleep through this one.

He made a better mess of the cake they had for him at daycare.  It was a sight to see.  But this one is still pretty cute.

Happy First Birthday!

Dear Munchkin,

Happy First Birthday!  I can't believe it's been a whole year since you came into our lives.   And I'm so glad you are here.   It's been a such a rollercoaster of a year.  With arriving 7 weeks early, the heart surgery, the stroke  and the seizures you keep scaring us half to death.  We love you so much and we wish that none of that had happened to you.

You're a trooper though.  You have to take awful tasting medicine every day and do exercises you don't like and yet you are such a happy little guy and you have smiles and charm for everyone.

One smile from you makes my day.  It just lights up the room.  And your snuggles are the best ever.   Even your snorts are pretty cute too.

You're growing into a little boy now and aren't going to be our baby boy for much longer.

Your Dad and I love you very much.  Have a Happy Birthday!

Love Mom

Happy Almost Birthday

December 11th was a much better day today than it was last year.  Last year I had gone to the hospital to wait for my wee  guy to be born 7 weeks early and have some heart surgery.    I was a little on the worried side there (well a lot).

Today however we had a birthday party for our Munchkin.  He's got a bit of a cold and we recently changed his medication so he was one sleepy boy.  So sleepy in fact, he fell asleep in his father's arms just as we were getting everything together for the Happy Birthday Song and cupcake.  We sang anyway.  

Sadly I seem to have had a malfunction on the video I was taking.

Moral of the story???  Don't try to hold the cupcake and shoot the video at the same time. 

Tomorrow on his actual birthday we will try again with the cupcake and see if he has some.  And we'll have his dad do the video this time.   I can't believe he's going to be a whole year old tomorrow.  Where did the time fly.

Tooth Number 7

It looks like tooth number 7 has made an appearance.  It's one of the lower teeth on the right side.  It also looks like tooth number 8 is ready to make an appearance right beside it.  We aren't surprised.  He is a drooly drooly mess.  We are kind of wondering if a bunch of other ones aren't making themselves ready as well.  We shall see.

How the Time Flies

Wow, is it December already?  Where has the year gone?  My little baby is going to be a whole year old soon.  It has been a whirlwind and adventure.

Big changes are happening next week.  He's starting daycare.  I won't have my wee little guy around all day anymore.  I have a feeling I am going to have a harder time with it than he will.

This morning we had a really wonderful snuggle on the couch.  I guess that will be the last leisurely weekday morning snuggle we're going to have for a very very long time.  He was so warm and small and snuggly.
