Oh what a year it has been. I know everyone says that the first year has flown by and I am sure they will continue, but with our constant trips to doctors, specialists and tests I feel our year has gone by way faster than usual! I will be updating this post this weekend to include some more birthday festivities we will have tomorrow. We are still at Riley waiting for his counts to rebound from this current round and then we should be able to go....with that said-Keegan LOVES cake!
My mom and two sisters along with Ryan's Dad and Aunt Ruby came for his birthday festivities on his actually birthday which was September 23rd. We had cupcakes delivered to us all the way from French Lick Indiana from Mrs. Alyssa from ABCupcakes.
On Saturday the 25th we celebrated with Uncle Bret, Laura and Michael, Grandma, Aunt Abby, His great Aunt Sofia and Uncle Tom along with his second cousins David and Sarah, Aunt Erica and Uncle Steve and Zack, Caden and Ridley. Our friends Ida and John from Fort Wayne also came down to spend the day-Uncle ReXx and Aunt Laura showed up a little late but we still love them anyway, they were walking in the Race for the Cure in Evansville.
Ryan and I decorated his hospital room as best we could to look "birthdayish". I bought 2 HUGE balloons, and by huge I mean bigger than Keegan himself, my mom brought 4 and Childlife gave him 1 with the birthday presents they gave him. So our room is FILLED with Balloons!
Here is a slide show of his celebration on his actual birthday:
We had a lot of fun! Even though his birthday was not what we had expected it to be, we celebrated as best we could! It helped that friends and family both near and far made the effort to come to Indy to celebrate our Baby Keegan's One Year Birthday.
Our last year has been ANYTHING but boring. While we have a LONG way to go until he is fully recovered, we are working on it and look forward to another year of firsts (sitting,crawling, walking and talking). While I wait in eager anticipation, I long him to stay a baby for just a little while longer. Here is to year one and how we have made our lemonade out of some very sour lemons-CHEERS!!!!
