The Baby is 1!!!!!

On September 14, 1954, 57 years ago, my mother's parents welcomed their 3rd little girl.  She was beautiful!  My grandparents could not be happier to have her in their lives.  Unfortunately, she did not live but a few years.  When I found out we were expecting our second child and that it would be due in mid September, I was hoping that day would be the 14th.  How awesome would that be for our child to share the same birthday of someone so special to our family.  You can only imagine my mother when I woke her up to tell her we were headed to the hospital in the wee hours of 14 September.  She could hardly wait to call my grandma.  We were overjoyed that The Baby had decided to make his arrival on this special day.
Brand new!

One year ago today, The Hubby woke to go to work at 5:00 am and I was walking around our bedroom keeping track of my contractions.  I knew we still had some time, but being a nurse, he loaded me into the car, leaving The Boy at home with my mother, and we headed to the hospital to await the arrival of our newest little boy.  Around 1 in the afternoon, The Baby arrived at 8lbs 4oz!!!!  I was so excited because he had rolls!!  The Boy never once had a roll, still doesn't...I don't think he ever will.  We were now a family of four.  Shortly after, my mother and The Boy walked in to see The Baby.  He was as calm as could be...taking it all in.

It is so hard to believe it has bee a year since he came into our little world.  What a year it has been for him, and us.  His constant battle with his severe eczema, the worse case of chicken pox ever along with small pox, agony over his teeth coming in, buying all these products to help his skin, being told he was allergic to water so we had to buy distilled water (which didn't do much), losing a member of the family, and more.  Yes it was a bumpy first year for our little guy, but it was also filled with so much joy and laughter, most of all, love!  This little man has brought so much more to our family.  He and The Boy have such a great time playing together.  I can hardly wait to watch them really play once he is a bit older.  I bet The Boy is ready for that as well :D
