Happy 1st Birthday Baby Boy!!!
It's sooooo hard to believe my baby boy is already 1 today! It seems like yesterday I was having contractions like crazy and thinking it was time for my baby to come every day....but he was taking his sweet little time. Dr. Birch, Cody, and I made a decision to induce the morning of Feb 9th at 11:15. My due date was the 10th but we all were ready for sweet baby Reed to arrive. He came 11.5 hrs later at 10:32 that night! WOW...........It was truly the best day of my life!!! Reed has brought me and Cody soooo much joy this year. I am not saying it has been easy by any means but ALL worth it for sure! God has blessed us and continues to bless us each and every day. He is so GOOD! We celebrated Reed's birthday back home with mainly family and a few close friends. The day turned out to be so fun and special. I was exhausted by the end of the day but thankful for all God has blessed us with....healthy baby boy, wonderful family, and such great friends too! I love kids and have always wanted to become a mom and have a baby of my own. Well, let me tell you there is NOTHING like it! I prayed for Reed for a long time before I finally got pregnant. I still remember running in the living room to tell Cody our news. I was about to hyperventilate trying to get it out! The look on Cody's face was priceless! He was grinning from ear to ear. Reed Garrett truly is a GIFT from God! Here is a a picture of Reed the day he was born and now.
