I'm Two!

Two years ago today, Jake and I were blessed with a beautiful baby boy.

Hayden was born 4 weeks before his due date. He arrived Saturday, March 7 at 4:01 a.m. and weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces. He looked and seemed healthy, but a few hours after he was born, his breathing was ragged and he was seemed to be gasping for air.

The NICU ( Newborn Intensive Care Unit) nurses examined him and decided he needed a little extra care. He was taken to the NICU and hooked up to an IV and given surfectant to help his under-developed lungs. Hayden spent several days in the NICU before he was able to come home.

Hayden grew so much his first year, that you would never guess he was a sick, premature baby. At his one year check up, he weighed a healthy 25 pounds.

We all love this little guy to bits. He truly rules our house. He cracks us up everyday.
