Joshua turns one today!






Joshua is truly our miracle baby! Just in case anyone has forgotten our joined the board after all of the excitement, Joshua was born at between 25 and 26 gestation. He was very ill. He spent 16 weeks in the NICU (newborn intensive care unit) You can search the boards to find out more.

Tuesday Joshua had his developmental follow up. The therapists and nurses that saw us were sooooo impressed with Joshua's progress!. He is sitting, rolling, getting ready to crawl, eating baby food, and dry cereal (He loves loves food . I've never seen a baby get more excited about eating) and babbling. He acts like a normal 9 month old baby. So far, we have not seen any effects from the prematurity. His blood pressure medication was halved. I think the next time we go in we might not need it at all, leaving us with only the reflux medication. HURRAH!!!!!

Joshua is just doing beautifully!!!!! Who knew a year ago that this sick little baby would become the sunshine of my families' life. He is a smart, serious, quick moving (with so many older siblings that take his toys away from him, yes HIS toys, he has to be fast when his older siblings abandon the toys just so he can play with them.) little boy. My older kids are constantly vying for his attention and lavish him with hugs and kisses and any other bit of affection you can imagine.

My DH and I just watch him in amazement. Someone asked me if I forget that he was a preemie with so many problems. My answer was I never forget. I'm always watching in gratitude and amazement. We feel that we are watching a miracle unfold before our very eyes.

We have had so many prayers and good wishes in Joshua's behalf. We can't help but think this that is the reason for Joshua's wonderful progress!!! THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU. Your support and prayers have meant so much to me and my family!!

Now I've got to go attend to the little miracle before he thinks he's going to starve to death

Congrats little Joshua! He's adorable - you'd never guess from looking at him what a hard start he had. And congrats to you and your family for pulling through the rough time and providing such a great home for him!

Oh, does time ever fly. It doesn't seem possible that it's been a year. I remember watching for your updates on how Joshua was doing. He looks so healthy and, of course, he's adorable.

Happy 1st Birthday Joshua!

Oh Wow! I can't believe it's been a year, although I'm sure it felt like 5 years to you during those early days. He is so adorable and quite a grin he has.

Happy Birthday Joshua!!
