For those who have kept up with our story you know just how awesome this is. He is one now and at his shots yesterday he weighed in at 20.8LBS. He is scoring right in the middle for most things and advanced for the rest. So perfectly on track. He is able to walk about 4 -5 steps, is a furniture climber now so our home looks like a crash pad with all the cushions on the floor in front of the furniture. He has several words now and some he is learning to sound out. He is great at letting you know when he is hungry, needs to be changed or if he wants his sippy. He is very active but still a complete cuddle bug. The saddest part is he weaned himself off the breast about a week ago. He still gets breast milk but it is from a sippy now. I do miss that mommy and Nico time though. So now for the best part. PICTURES A few weeks after he was born One of my favorite photos of the two of us Shortly before his surgery showing his usual bubbly personality Day of Surgery(4 months old) A few days after surgery Getting to meet his sister for the first time(5 months old) One of our favorite professional shots of him Nico walking Nico sitting on his new pony that he got as one of his b-day presents on Sunday Last but not least Nico enjoying his b-day cake. They just grow up WAY too fast. What a year this has been for my family. Hoping the next year finally reunites us all and brings just as much good fortune as this year did.
