Conway is ONE!

Connie is officially one on March 3rd, but we celebrated his birthday on the 2nd. It was a beautiful day weather-wise and all around. Friends and family came from near and far to celebrate this miracle child. He was awake from 10:45am until around 5:30 pm. We tried to let him nap but I guess he was too excited for his big day. He was such a trooper. He let everyone hold him and he was a love bug all day. He sat on the floor and played while I opened the presents and didn't throw up one time on his birthday clothes! Finally after everyone was gone, he slept for about an hour and a half and then went to bed for the night at about 8:30.

I'm falling asleep as I post this, but I knew everyone would be anxious to see his birthday pics.

Here's a movie I made outlining his first year of life. What a year it has been!

Happy Birthday Conway! What an amazing video! It's so funny how when I was watching that, I was saying to myself, "Oh, I remember that picture or the posts when she was talking about that", like I was there. I don't even "know" you all, but reading about you all these months has been a true blessing for me. Thank you so much. Kennedy (my March baby) wishes Conway a happy birthday too.

Happy Birthday, Conway!
So great to see you looking well with lots of smiles. We're hoping year number 2 brings a lot more smiles & laughter (and few surprises).
Bailey will celebrate her 2nd birthday on March 9 and unless we have some unexpected bumps, she will do so at HOME!
Enjoy your special day!
