Happy First Birthday Davis!!!

I can't believe it's already been a year since that wild day one year ago when our cardiologist told me at my routine visit/scan that it was "go time".  Davis has been such an amazing little guy and has taught us so much about life and how to deal with the bumps gracefully. We had a wonderful day today celebrating his birthday. We met my parents and Katie and Zach at a local restaurant for lunch and then came back to our house for baby-friendly carrot cake and presents. It was a gorgeous day today so we were able to sit outside and celebrate in amazing weather. YAY! Jason was sadly sick and not able to join us and we definitely missed him.

Davis was very excited about his huge cake. We let him dig into it first, but he was very gentle and artistic about smearing the icing around. Kelly finally had to put some cake in his mouth for him. Then he loved it.

Thanks for the bath toys uncle Zach!

Enjoying a ride in his new swing, with his new hat on (which he wasn't too thrilled about wearing)

I love all the photos of Davis' Happy Birthday celebration. My favorite, though,is the one of Mommy and Daddy giving Davis a great big kiss. What a wonderful way to celebrate a 1st b-day AND a new lease on a very special life!! Love to all!

Hooray!! What wonderful pictures! Tell Davis Happy Birthday and tell him that I will come visit him this summer (if his mom and dad will let me). :) Heart, KT
