I know…I am a slacker mom! I am a little behind on Eli’s 12 month update. It is crazy to think it has been a year. On Eli’s birthday we went to lunch with “Uncle Paul” at El Potrillo. It was a tough day for me. Remembering all the happenings of that day was tough considering I was not totally with it for most of it. For me it was a day to remember all that I was thankful for. For the best little gift I was ever given. For months I drove back and forth to the hospital to hold my little baby and now I get to see him anytime I want! Aaron and I have never been happier and thankful for all we have been given.
