Happy birthday, Reed! Today you are two years old!!!! I can’t believe we’ve had you for two years. It hardly seems like it’s been any time at all since we first laid eyes on you!
Mommy held you for just a couple of minutes and when the nurses took you, noticed you weren’t doing well. They whisked you away from us and it would be hours before mommy would see you again.
Not knowing what was wrong with you made for some of the scariest hours of my life. Seeing you like this was so hard for me, and it broke my heart not being able to hold you, sweet boy.
But in true Reed fashion, you were a trooper. You were then, and you are now. This 2nd year of your life has been tough. With what seemed like constant sickness, and then your cyst, infections and surgery, it’s been a difficult year for you. But you’ve taken each day in stride and have handled it so well. You make your mommy so proud!
Here a few of my favorite memories of you from the last year!
We are so thankful you are part of our family, Reed. You make us laugh multiple times a day. You’re also a sweet a boy and you love your mommy, daddy, and A-yuh! I hope you know how much we love you! I pray that this next year is a little easier on you! We’ll be here with you each step of the way, and I cannot wait to see what the next year brings for you, sweet boy!
Love you always buddy,
