Wow! It's been 3 years.
3 years since I peaked over the big blue sheet and saw my baby boy for the first time...I remember it almost moment for moment. what a blessing!
Leigh and I often play a game where we look at the date, open iPhoto, and then say "What did grey look like 1 year ago, 2 years ago", and now we can say 3 years ago. It's crazy to see how much he's grown up, and really fun to "go back in time" and re live those times we had with him.
So lets play...
it's February 16, 2012
what happened 3 years ago today?
He was still in the NICU, recovering, getting stronger everyday.
what happened 2 years ago today?
He has being silly wearing my hat.
what happened 1 year ago today?
He was lovin life!
Ok so i dont have a picture of him today, February 16, 2012 but lets pretend...here's some pics from his birthday weeekend!
Greys birthday breakfast. Oh by the way, he loves Mickey Mouse these days,
Um, yeah, those are Mickey Mouse pancakes.
Our big 3 year old!
Just being silly!
Mickey Mouse clubhouse cake. (we still have leftovers of that thing)
WE asked Grey for weeks what he wanted for his birthday...Cake, thats all he wanted. And boy did he love it!
Here's Grey's "stool" that Grandpa Gibbs made for him. this week he's loved using it to help with the dishes and "cook with mommy" it's such a great piece of furniture to have in the house! Thanks pops!
And after a long day filled with cake and presents, its time for a rest with mommy.
Here's short clip of us singing Happy Birthday to him, Man, he loved it this year.
love to all,
Andy, Leigh, Grey
