WHY MOMS Party, Part 4: Celebrating a Miracle!

My Kids BIRTHDAY? Yes, this is one department I don’t mess around with. Why? It may have a little something to do with the fact that- these precious little angels of mine have MIRACULOUSLY survived another year of life! You mothers have to admit that is an accomplishment. Truly. Have you read the news lately? (Don’t. It’s enough to worry you… But you get my point). It’s true, surviving a year is enough to celebrate. I’ve learned as a nurse that even just getting each new baby into this world is a miracle in and of itself. And for some of us, getting them to come isn’t the easiest process. My littlest one for example… it took 6 long years to get him here. HE is our miracle. After waiting this long for our little brother, and successfully making it through that first year~ you’d better believe we are going to celebrate BIG! Our lives now revolve around this little man, and we are most certainly his No. 1 Fans… so for his No. 1 Birthday, that is just what we did:

 You’re #1 ~  first birthday:
