My Baby is ONE!

I can hardly believe it has been a year since my sweet Peter was born. As I think back over the year there is no way I can possibly put into words how happy that little guy has made me. I just love being his Mom. He is busy, and happy, and intense, and so much fun! The day Peter was born was really touch and go, the doctors were trying to hold off delivery a little bit longer, but his heart rate dropped and I had to have an emergency C-section. Nate made it to the hospital just as I was getting back from the operating room. I was just so glad my sweet little boy had made it and was doing okay. The first hour or two were bumpy, but he did so well. It is hard to imagine he was only 2 lbs 10 oz! Today at his 1 year check-up he weighed in at a whopping 16 lbs. 1 oz. That is over 6 times what he started at. I am just so happy to have him in our little family and that he is doing so well. I really can't imagine life without him. Here are some pictures of our journey from the past year.
I LOVE YOU PETER!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This is one of the first pictures of Peter. The first day he was on a respirator for a few hours. He was only 14 inches long!This was after they took him off the respirator. His eyes are covered because he was under lights to treat his jaundice. That is a preemie diaper and it still looks gigantic!
This is the first time Jake met his new brother, May 15. Pete was 1 day old.
This was the first time Emma met Peter.

This was Peter's first day out of an incubator. This was Peter's first day home.
