First Birthday Party

Today is Little Man’s first birthday party. It is also the one year anniversary of waking up next to him in our own bedroom for the first time since the NICU. I wake up every morning grateful to have him in my life. I greet him every morning with a smile no matter how tired I am. I am beyond thankful to every doctor, nurse and lactation consultant at the NICU for supporting us through the hardest most gut wrenching time of my life. It is because of them that Little Man is here today. It is because of them we are able to celebrate. Today I will not only be celebrating him, but you. For everything you do for every mama, dada, baby, everyone who walks through your doors. And especially for the ones who walk out empty. You will not easily be forgotten by any of us.
