you've come a long way...

From 2 lbs 3 oz, hooked up to every IV and monitor you could imagine, and calling a incubator in the NICU home...
(Priceless moment captured in the NICU at 2 lbs 9 oz.)

... Looking back on that time your dad and I thought this day would never come. Look at you at you now. Twenty-three lbs. later, pulling yourself up onto things, just weeks away from walking, filling our home with smiles and laughter, giving us kisses (only when you want too), and helping us discover a new dimension of love. Your even stuffing your face with cake... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Baby Cakes! (PS. You'll always have that nickname no matter how grown up you are).

Just wanted to mention a big Thank You to all the amazing nurses and Doctors that helped this day happen. They'll always have a special place in our hearts...
