Look How Far He's Come!

Our Baby L was born exactly 1 year ago. 6 lbs. 15 oz. Such a sweet little man.

One week later he became sick and was admitted to the NICU. Eleven gut-wrenching days. But God sustained us and never left us. And despite the fact that his MRI showed 3 brain bleeds, despite the fact that he has overall low muscle tone, despite the fact that our therapists didn't even expect him to crawl by age one...

Yup! That's Baby L standing all by himself 2 days before his first birthday! God is good!!!

L1 waits expectantly.

Hmmm...seems interesting.

Oh, yeah! This is definitely my favorite...his first bite. I laugh out loud every time I see this picture.

Oh, was it a mess! I have to say a big THANKS to Chad who totally took care of clean-up.

After a quick dunk in the tub, he was ready to open presents.

What a big boy!!
Pin It Now!


  1. Praise God! What a journey and what a gift! Happy Birthday little've worked VERY hard this year. God has amazing things in store for your future!

  2. Happy Birthday little one!! He's such a doll!! And God is so good!!

  3. So pleased to hear how well he is doing! I remember reading your story just before Myra was born and praying for him and thinking about how scary your journey was, not knowing I would start my own challenging journey less than a month later. God IS good and we have to try not to forget our many blessings.

  4. What a precious boy! Happy Birthday and Praise to the Lord for His goodness!

  5. These brought cold chills! God IS good! It never ceases to amaze me to look back 1 year after an event that has seemed to be one of the hardest we have had to face at the time, and it's so neat to look back and see how far God has brought us! I'm so glad that sweet boy is doing SO well!
