I know we haven’t updated for a while, but life has been a little crazy. But we are excited to announce that Teagan has turned “1” today, I can’t even believe it. This whole last week I have been kind of emotional thinking about writing this. I keep thinking all of the blessings and miracles we have been given in the last year, and I just want to cry. To look back and think about all that my little guy has gone through is overwhelming. I am so excited to move on and have a year of hopefully no Dr.’s other than well visits. The Dr.’s have told us that with how good Teagan is looking and doing , he will have at least a year until his next surgery. We were very excited about that. We are hoping to go on with a normal life for a while. We are so excited to see him cross this mile stone, and can’t wait to see him cross more. So I was all excited to have a big BBQ with family this Saturday for his Birthday, had invitations made and all. But then of course Monday Teagan started throwing up and didn’t stop, so I took him to the dr. they tested him and it came back positive that he had influenza B. Ya that was a lot of fun this week, but they also told me that he would be contagious until Saturday. Needless to say the party has been put off for a little while. His official birthday is today, but Teagan wasn’t feeling to hot so we are waiting until tomorrow to do our little family party and give him his own cake. He will love it, and he will never now we had to put if off a day. We did give him his big present today, we couldn’t wait. It was a large dinosaur that he can ride and play with. He loved it. I am posting a picture of him playing on it today. I forgot he will have a little hospital visit on November 2nd , He is going in to get tubes put in and get a circumcision. He’s not going to be very exited, but it needs to be done ( he will thank us later).

Development wise Teagan is doing very well. He has started pulling himself up and tries walking around furniture. They said it is normal for a baby who has had a past like his, to take a while to gain the muscles to walk. I am ok with this, its one less thing that will help him get into things.

Now that we have made it through the first year, we feel like we can make it through anything as a family. Thanks for all of the love and support that you all have shown us. We love and appreciate your friendship. Hope all is well with all of you. Our Birthday wish is that all of us can have an uneventful year, filled with love and happiness.

Love, Amanda
