January 2008 - I'm thankful that Reid could actually hold his Reflux to a minimum for me to get a picture of his shirt with no bib in the way! You won't see too many "bare" shirt pics from our house!
February 2008 - I'm thankful for steri-strip tape...much better than what the hospital gave us to tape the NAM with. Just ask Brian!
March 2008 - I'm so thankful the NAM did its job. What a great progression Reid's lip made from so early on by using the NAM.
April 2008 - I'm thankful for absorbant bibs. Trust me, you have no idea!
May 2008 - I'm thankful for an amazing surgery team that won our hearts from the very start. They gave us a miracle.
June 2008 - I'm SOOO thankful that those horrible stents are done with. But, I admit...they did their job well. I just didn't know if I would make it through that process.
July 2008 - I'm thankful for friends who stuck by us every step along the way. We were enjoying great company on this day and some pool time with some friends. It was Reid's first experience with a pool.
August 2008 - I'm so thankful for my family. I can't tell you how blessed I am to be married to Brian. He was amazing and was my backbone during this whole ordeal. Ellie was a champ and grew up very quickly (I felt) because she had to be the "big girl" so often when we weren't around. I am so blessed to have my parents and in laws close by. They were our rock. Love you all so much!
September 2008 - I'm thankful for little moments like these...where I could just watch my little guy not be so little!
October 2008 - I am thankful to watch Reid experience life for the first time. He was amazed at the wind in this picture.
