A Weekend for Celebrations!

Blaise turned one month old on Saturday, May 12th. For many, recognizing monthly birthday's isn't something they do but for us it was a pretty big milestone! We are so thankful for the blessings God has bestowed upon Blaise and for providing us 30 incredible days so far with him. We gave lots of thanks on Saturday for our baby boy! Of course, mom couldn't pass up the opportunity to sing Happy Birthday!  Below is a "Watch Him Grow" photo, which we will update each month.  I've also included a photo of him from right after his surgery when he was just 3 days old. It's definitely not an easy picture to look at, and I've tried to erase as much of this time from my memory as possible. I think comparing the two pictures just proves how great he is doing. It also shows how absolutely incredible, strong and what a fighter he is. A true Superman! It's hard to imagine such a little person, brand new to this world having to undergo such pain and suffering as soon as entering this world. It makes me appreciate even more the gift God gave us, by sending his only son and watching his pain and suffering on the cross to forgive our sins.

It's great to see how much he has grown from the photo in the hospital to the one month photo. Blaise now weights 7 pounds 14 ounces. He has been eating like a champ, but we are still dealing with a milk/soy protein intolerance. We are hoping this clears up soon!! He also sometimes to seem to think it's party time from about nine-midnight. He is an absolute cuddle-bug!

This weekend also was my first Mothers Day! I thank God everyday for making me a mother and allowing Michael and I to be his parents. We plan to do everything to raise him just as God would like us to.

We also ventured out of the house on our first walk and stroller ride! Mom just HAD to document the occassion, but I'm pretty sure the boys thought that she was a bit crazy!


A few new videos and photos are added below for your enjoyment!
