Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!

Today my baby (yeah I know he is technically a toddler, but he is MY baby) is 2 years old.

I can’t believe that these last 2 years have flown by so fast. My little baby with the sweet disposition is growing up. Having JJ was interesting enough. After my water broke, he decided that maybe he wasn't quite ready to come out into the world. He hid a little bit (the nurses actually asked me if he was breach) after doing an ultrasound they realized that he was not breach, but had moved up quite a bit. So after 16 hours he came into the world via c-section. JJ first few (6) weeks we not the greatest. He was literally slowing starving. After many trips to the doctor, several reflux medicines later he was diagnosed with Pyloric Stenosis, we rushed him to Children’s hospital. When he was admitted, he weighted less than he did when he was born. 24 hours later after having surgery, he was a completely different kid. He has been smiling ever since.
He is my up early riser, so JJ and I get a lot of time together in the morning just the two of us. He is a snuggle bug, he loves to hug and give kisses to everyone. He really just is a sweet, sweet boy.
