Our Growing Little Boy

Our little boy is a growing weed! I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. He was such a tiny little miracle. I remember holding him scaried to death I was going to break him or pull on the wrong tube or accidently pull his IV out. I was so scaried and to me he was so fragile. However I also remember how great Jon was with him! He was not scaried about anything! He would hold and feed him with such love! I remember how much my love grew for him that day as well! Tyler had the best earthly father imaginable!! We had this little miracle sent from God and I loved him more than words could ever describe. We prayed everyday that he would grow in size and that he would learn how to eat on his own. My sweet little boy never lost weight in the hospital and had grown a whole pound by the time we got to take him home 13 days later. He also learned how to drink out of his little tiny 2 ounce bottle by the time we left also! It was so amazing to spend those days in the hospital watching him learn and grow and flourish. It was also a great bonding time for me and my husband. I will never forget it. My precious little boy from the time we took him home has grown and flourished into a amazing little boy. I can not believe how much he has grown this far and I can not believe it has been 9 months already! Where does the time go?
