We are having a little carnival themed birthday party for Blake this afternoon with all his boy cousins. He is very excited!
Eight years ago today THIS is what I was doing/thinking/feeling. Our life changed dramatically that day. Not only did we welcome our second child into our family, which is life changing itself, we welcomed a little boy born with Spina Bifida.
Diaper changes that lasted 20 minutes and used 6 diapers in the middle of night, an extended NICU stay and a ton of doctor appointments, and laying in bed at night worrying about this new little boy's medical future....were just a few of the immediate noticeable changes. And, looking back....I have loved every single change.
We are enjoying the journey. And while we are struggling right now with new leg aches this week, and wondering if they are just normal growing pains or related to Spina Bifida....we love that Blake truly knows he was made special by a loving Heavenly Father who has given us the opportunity to learn and grow as a family together!
Happy Birthday Bud!
