Today, my JJ turned 4. I cannot believe that it was 4 years ago that I was holding him in my arms for the very first time.
His first year was one of the hardest of my life. He was born with a true knot in his cord. The doctors said that if we had waited just one more day, we probably would have lost him.
When he was just a few months old, he developed a severe form of reflux. It would cause him to stop breathing. I will never forget the times I saw my baby turn blue. It was heart wrenching.
Now, here he is. 4 years old and SO full of life. The ultimate little boy. No fear of anything at all. We bought him a shirt for his birthday that says, “I do my own stunts.” It suits him perfectly.
