I can't believe it's almost been a year already! My baby is growing up too fast! Everyone told me the first year would fly by, but I didn't think it would go by THIS FAST! So now we are planning his first birthday. At first I was all set to give him a duck themed birthday party (all for my viewing pleasure of course!) but he is SOOOO in love with Elmo, so I have decided to give him what he wants ;) So far, I'm set on an Elmo cake and hiring someone in an Elmo costume to come and entertain the kids. I'm still trying to decide if I should do the party at my mom's house or mine. I would love to do it here, but I worry that most of my family will not want to drive the 2.5 hours to his party. But if I give it at my mom's house, then we will have to make the birthday boy ride 2.5 hours to his own party...Is that fair?? LOL? Perhaps I will call family and ask them if they would be willing to come here for his birthday. We've been in MS for almost 2 yrs now and the only family that has ever visited us has been my parents and my brother. I really want J's cousins to be there at his party, so I'll have to decide on the best spot. Oh well...I have 3 months left right???
Thank you for visiting our blog! We are happy to share a little bit of our lives with you. After years of battling infertility, we adopted our son, Jayden, at birth and 5 years later I gave birth to our newest addition, Elias. God is so good!!
This blog is a mixture of personal thoughts, daily battles and triumphs with Jayden's health, and about our experiences as a family of 4. So sit back and enjoy our crazy life!
