2: Before you were born I dreamed of you and what you would be like, I imagined the day you would be born, your first cry, the first time I got to look into your eyes and the moment daddy held you for the first time. All of those wonderful things happened for us but not the way they were imagined. Being born at 27 weeks, weighing 1 pound 13ounces, you were a miracle from the day you were born. But there you were, Anyzeski written on your bracelet, it was very real, I was a mommy and you were ours. You spent 84 days in the NICU and bringing you home was the best day of our lives.

44: Every little detail... | went into planning your first birthday party. When you were in the NICU I would sit at your bedside and plan in my head what this day would be like. Today was more than just a first birthday party, it was a celebration of our journey with our friends and family. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon at the park, everyone had such a great time and loved on you every minute of the three hours.

53: We are a family of three | The "it" girl, pumpkin, our rock, our glue. There was nothing in this world that could have prepared me for you. You opened my heart and let out the biggest party ever had and we've been dancing and singing ever since. In the last year, we have been on the go, you love a good vacation or days just hanging at home. I've watched you over come weakness that I wouldn't wish on anyone and you do it with a smile on your face and twinkle in your eye. You have captured the love of so many but none like mommy and daddy's. I know that you won't remember anything that has happened in your first year and I guess that is a blessing but one day when you understand what a miracle you are and all that we have been though, I want you to know that it wasn't all scary and fearful. The joy in watching you roll over for the first time, crawl or finally sit up was celebrated as if we just won the lottery. We celebrate everything. And we get to do it with a whole lot of people that love you very much I can't wait to see what the next year has planned for you. And don't worry this party is just getting started. | Complete.
