I can not believe an entire year has gone by since Garrett was born. He is an amazing child and I feel so blessed that he chose me as a mother. This first year has been a roller coaster ride full of joy, laughter, fear, defeat, growth, learning and amazement. Garrett still struggles with numerous food allergies and also ear infections but we are making tremendous improvements and I am learning so much on how to help his little body recover. There have been dark days where I felt that I couldn’t possibly cope with his health challenges but I realize now that in many ways these challenges have been a blessing. They have taught me so much and humbled me as well.
I made this video tonight in honor of Garrett’s first year on this earth. I can’t watch it without weeping. He is such a beautiful child with a curious and fiery little personality. I can’t put into words how much I love him. Happy Birthday Bear.
I have also added his Birth Video for those who would like to watch it again or who have never seen it before.
I would also like to thank Shilowe for all of the wonderful pictures she has taken of my children. I appreciate it so much!
