A very special birthday

Goodness gracious I’m behind on updating my blog. I hope to get caught up over the next few days but I can’t make any promises.

Last weekend we celebrated a birthday of a very special friend. I’ve mentioned Colby, (http://www.hitchcockreport.com/) one of our heart buddies, in other posts. We were invited to his 1st birthday party and we were thrilled to be a part of the celebration.

His party was a beach theme and they had baby pools set up for the kids. It was so cute.


Me, Cain, Colby (the birthday boy) and his mom Becca. It's still crazy to me that I found her through her blog.


The super cute birthday boy. He always has the sweetest smile.


Colby and Cain "talking". I wonder what they were saying to each other. It's no doubt that they have a bond none of us could ever understand.


I thought it was really cute..Colby grabbed Cain's hand and then...


Cain grabbed Colby's finger and didn't want to let go.

I told Brad before we went to the party that I was scared I would end up crying when singing Happy Birthday to Colby. Thankfully I didn't cry but it was certainly a wonderful celebration. Now that I have a 'heart baby' it makes me look at birthdays in a different way. It's a true celebration of life!

Colby has his 2nd surgery (the Glenn operation) scheduled for August 28th. Please keep Colby and his family in your prayers.
