My preemie is 1 today!

Today at 10:13am he'll officially be 1. I really can't believe it. Really, I can't. It's been quite the year but thankfully we're happy and healthy and Michael is doing well.

One week old and 3lbs!

I cannot believe it has already been a year! I am sure it has felt much longer for you, but it has flown by for me! Happy Birthday! Is he having cake and ice cream?

Anne, in some way it went fast yet it didn't. I cherish every day..as I know all of you here feel the same.

He touched his cake on his party at Sunday...then cried after we sang. I actually froze his small cake so tonight I'll go to my mom's and try cake again. He isn't interested in eating much adult food right now so we'll see, I just might dab some icing in his face though :)
