The birthday of any child is a reason to celebrate. But there is always something special about the birthday of a child who has had a special battle in their lives. Medical advances are amazing and the odds were always very good that this little man would be survive when he was born 3 months early but the fact that he has thrived and has not only caught up by blown past the developmental goals for a child his age was not guaranteed. I love this kid and his family. I have loved watching him grow from a 1lbs 11oz baby to a chubby cheeked toddler that loves talk and collect anything and EVERYTHING. I cannot wait to see what the future has to hold for this little guy.
