We remember feeling terrified to see our son. We knew so many horrible things about his condition and how his body would be a mess, that we were afraid we would look at him and be more horrified than in love. Would he even live? Would we be able to take care of him if he did survive? Would we be good parents? So many questions and so many fears. As you probably guessed, we did fall in love with Mr. Boy and although we still have fears and worries for our son, we give them to the Lord daily, knowing that He has AMAZING plans for Mr. Boy's life!
He arrived 2.5 months early, 4lbs, with a club foot, spinal defects, with many of his abdoninal organs on the outside of his body... and perfect in every way. A miracle in so many ways.
Mr. Boy's Birthday Party Pictures:
Reason why you were not invited to Mr. Boy's party: :) While planning Mr. Boy's party I got progressively stressed out about the amount of people we should invite and how crowded it would be and how many favors I needed to make and they would have to be super cute, and all the appetizers I'd need to bake, and how Mr. Boy would get anxious if I wasn't by his side the entire time while I'd need to be a host and all I really wanted to do was bake a fun cake cuz I've been watching too many cake shows and yada, yada, yada. Then I realized:
I wanted a big party just to impress others and fill their expectations.
Mr. Boy's not a huge fan of people.
Amazing small family party!
My 4-tiered cake!
Gazing at his birthday cake all lit up
After. He's pretty clean actually...taking after his mother.
Here is a little recap of Mr. Boy's first few months:
|If nothing else, we know his head has grown. :)|
