One Year Ago...



One year ago today I got to hold, kiss, snuggle, breath in his smells, and smile at a precious little boy that changed my life forever.

Ephraim has changed so much in the year he has been with us.

April 22, 2009: Could barley hold his head up because he was so weak.
April 22, 2010: Runs around the house like a normal toddler.

April 22, 2009: Weighed 17 lbs 2 oz
April 22, 2010: Weighs 38 lbs 4 oz

April 22. 2009: Had to put a size 1 diaper on and still was too big to fit around his legs.
April 22, 2010: Had to buy special large diapers to fit around his legs and belly.

April 22, 2009: Wore 3 to 6 month clothes that were baggy on him.
April 22, 2010: Wears 2T and 3T clothes.

April 22, 2009: Had to buy special formula because of his weight and food intolerance's.
April 22, 2010: Off the special formula and only has 1 food intolerance left.

April 22, 2009: Started physical therapy and occupational therapy shortly after coming home to help him catch up to his age.
April 22, 2010: No longer in occupational therapy and only has physical therapy for 1 area.

April 22, 2009: Would hardly smile, laugh, cry or babble
April 22, 2010: Now you cannot get him to stop talking, laughing, screaming, crying, yelling, singing and best of all, cannot get him to take that smile off his face!!!
