Daniel's 1st birthday

Yesterday was a big day for many reasons, not the least of which was Daniel's birthday! It's amazing to think my little baby is now a one year old. Time is flying by the second time around.

This is Daniel pretty much all the time...smiley, happy, an utter joy to be around.
Julia enjoyed the fesitivities as well...I think she ate about 3 cupcakes yesterday! We just couldn't say no on her first day home.
Daniel enjoyed his birthday cake, and it wasn't the free for all that I expected. He would swipe one finger in the frosting, put it in his mouth...swipe the frosting, finger in the mouth. The picture below was about the extent of the mess, although there was a nice glob of frosting in his hair when it was all said and done.
The big present from us was this little fire truck. He also got presents from other family members and has been having a blast with his new toys.

Here is our girl getting her meds through her PICC line. It's going very smoothly so far, although getting up at 1am was not a lot of fun last night. She slept right through it though! Can you tell by that smile she's happy to be home? The past 24 hours have been pure bliss. Every day she continues to get stronger and stronger. Yesterday she was able to walk with very little help. She is also using her right hand to eat and play with toys. Life is good.
