1st B-day Pictures!!
We took Jr. to Sears for his 1st B-day Portraits! He did a really good job! He is so photogenic!
The photographer added a bunch of special effects.
He actually did not like this pose and either did Mommy! He cried and kept trying to look back to see what was on top of him! Even though he is smiling he is kinda teary eyed!
So cute!!! One of my favorites!
The number one statue was kinda wobbly so we had to take quick shots! He still has to hold on to a firm surface.
Mommy's little man!!! We love him so much!
Had a coupon for a free 10x13 and we got one of this collage!
Such a happy little guy we have here! 4 more days till his 1st BIRTHDAY and the anniversary of the scariest time of my life. A year ago today I was on bedrest trying so hard to keep him inside for just a little bit longer! He is our miracle baby!

2008 NICU Reunion!!!
We went to the NICU reunion in April and it was pretty packed! Didn't see any of the Nurses that took care of him tho, I guess it was a busy in the NICU that day, and ones that didn't work probably didn't want to come in on their off days! Saw a few twins and triplets! Lots of the parents we saw I recognized, either from our 7 week stay at the NICU or from work when they were on bedrest! We also made a quilt square for the reunion quilt that will be posted on the wall outside the NICU! It should be up soon!
Jr. and I posing for Daddy!
We put him on the display isolette that he lived in for the first 4 1/2 weeks of his life! He weighed 2lbs 12ozs! My we have come a long way!!!! What a miracle! I'm am so thankful that he is so healthy with no long term effects from being a 28 weeker!! I thank God for my Son!!
The clown was worried she was going to scare him, but he did pretty good! As you can see he didn't smile, but he didn't cry either! He kept reaching for her nose, he wanted to grab it so bad it was hilarious!

It's been a long time I know! I finally got the opportunity to update but I don't even know where to start! We are going back about 5 months!
We got Jr. Dedicated back in Feb. He did a great job during the ceremony! He didn't cry much at all, mommy cried more than he did!
Here were are with our Pastor, moms, and Derrick's Stepdad!
All the people that came! Becca and Alycia joined us too! We had a great time!
Doesn't he seem interested in his knew book! Being so patient and listening to every word!
Here are my best Friends Katie and Dawn! I have known both of them for over 17 years and I couldn't just pick one, so they are both his Godmothers!!
