One Year Ago Today.....

......our little niece, Avery, was born at 26 weeks gestation, weighing only 1lb., 8oz (pictured on the left) and now she weighs over 17 pounds!

Today is her 1st birthday!


I just couldn't let the day go by without doing a post about her. Grandpa just posted an album of Avery's 1st year on facebook and it was amazing to look at all those pictures and see how far she has come! She is a miracle baby and is just perfect :) And, of course, we all love her very much!

Yesterday our family celebrated her special day!

Her adorable and tasty cake! She had her own little cake too that she put a hurtin' on!
Here's the birthday girl with her mama while we sing 'Happy Birthday!'

See....I told you she put a hurtin' on her little cake. She meant business!

Opening presents with her daddy, big sister and cousins!

With Grandma & Grandpa!

What a special little girl! Here's wishing you many more happy birthdays, Miss Avery. Hope your mama gave you some more cake today on your real birthday! You deserve it!

It's been quite a year--gratefully, one with a very happy ending! Precious child; she should know she is loved by all.

What a year it has been! Looking at her now, it's hard to remember she's the same baby that was soo tiny. She did get some more cake for her actual birthday...she enjoyed it just as much as the first one while on Skype with Grandma Jean and Grandpa Doug in WI.
