Happy Birthday Bean!

I can't believe its been a whole year.

I had initially typed up a long retrospective, but realized it would be better to just keep it simple.

Happy 1st Birthday!
This past year has been more incredible than we will ever be able to express to you, and we owe every last bit of it to you.
We look forward to watching as you grow over this next year, and all the years after that.

We love you with all of our hearts, and then some.
Mom and Dad

Max's 1-year photos

Grandma Camille took Max out to get his one year photos taken. We think they turned out great.
Here are some of the best shots.

Our trip to the ER

Max has had the stomach flu since Thursday, and things got bad enough yesterday that the doctor recommended we take him to the ER to get checked out.

Around 3:30, I left work and came home to pick up Max and Bobbie Jo. He'd had been having trouble with everything we tried to feed him and had visibly lost weight. He was quite dehydrated.

They gave him quite a bit of IV fluid, and 5 hours later we were on our way. I'm pleased to report that he's doing much better and enjoying his sleep and his formula.

It's definitely been rough, his first major sickness. We're hoping it's a long time before the next one.
