Happy 5th Birthday, Andrew!

Today is Andrew's 5th birthday.

In some ways his entrance into this world seems like yesterday, and in some ways his birthday seems like a blip long ago.  Our brave and tough little boy certainly didn't enter the world in a typical way, overcoming much more than any little baby should ever have to, but he's a fighter and is a wonderful little boy who I have no doubt will continue to do great things.

We're so thankful to God for watching out for out little baby and allowing him to thrive from 2 lb 3 oz into a happy and healthy 37.5 lb little boy.
