Four Years!

Four years ago today the sweetest baby boy was born to me. The ultimate gift. Brennan had a very rough start, but has fought through everything and I am so proud that he is my son. He was born at exactly 29 weeks due to me having severe pre-eclampsia. He weighed 2lb 12oz and he was 15 inches long. I will save his birth story for another post, but I did want to share a few pictures from birth. It is so unreal that four years have gone by since I had him, four years. Wow.

Two Weeks-July 1st One Month-July 23rd

I LOVE these pictures. I can't believe how much he changed in 22 days. We were so proud of every little ounce he gained in the NICU!

Here he is in his car seat coming home. He was around 5lbs when he came home.

Our first day home. I can't even tell you the relief I felt coming home after spending 6 weeks in the NICU. You would think I would be scared to bring home my preemie, but all I felt was this huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Looking through these pictures brings back all of those feelings and memories.

Brennan was almost 2 months in this picture.

He will get a kick out of this picture of him when he was a baby wearing spider man! That is the theme of his party this year:)

Brennan's due date-September 3rd. My mom made this cake for him- "Brennan is Love"

First smiles in October:)

Here he is in May at 11 months. I had a really hard time getting his hair cut for the first time, can you tell??

His first birthday was Cardinals themed. Everyone wore their Cardinals gear and we had ball park favorites to eat:) I made Brennan's baseball cake. I try to make his cake every year, I guess it's something special to me. This year we're just doing cupcakes, but they are very much Spider Man theme and I made them with lots of love:)

This is Brennan when he was 14 months old soaking up the sun in Florida:)

His second Halloween he was one of the three little pigs with Brody and Bella:)

Ice Cream cone on his 2nd birthday:)

Brennan's first two birthdays we celebrated at the zoo, including this one when he turned 2. Last year we went to see Toy Story 3 because I was pregnant with Reese and Scotlyn and was already swollen and miserable and would not have survived a day at the zoo. This year, his birthday is on Saturday so his celebration is his birthday party.
