Happy Birthday Sam!


Today is Sam's 6th birthday!!!  I can hardly believe that 6 years ago this tiny 2lb 5oz, 14 inch miracle came into our lives.  Check out Sam's montage in the sidebar of my blog to see just how far he has come in these past 6 years.  Slow and steady wins the race!  We are all so proud and happy for you little man... you make us all want to be better.  You are Amazing.  

In about an hour I am going to take balloons into Sam's class at school for his birthday treat.  Sam is still g-tube fed and I can see cupcakes becoming projectiles... fun as that might be to have a food fight on your birthday at school... I will bring in balloons (which Sam loves).  Sam has been working on his colors too and I am beyond proud to say that Sam can discern between Red, Yellow, Orange and Black (by pointing) and gets it correct nearly every time.  So those will be the balloon color choices for today (I won't be getting black ones).  

So please join us in wishing Sam a very Happy Birthday... cha cha cha!
