Happy Birthday Seth! (We're a bit behind on the blogging!)

Well, as you can tell, I'm very behind in keeping everyone who cares to read my blog up to date with things that are going on around here. But I had to pay tribute to my little guy! On June 15th Seth turned one year old! He was born 15 weeks too soon. He was due on September 26th, but due to my water breaking at 18 weeks and bleeding, labor came too early. We were able to keep him inside until I was 25 weeks and 2 days along, and then he made his debut into the world. Honestly, I didn't expect him to survive and was bracing for the time when we would be told to say goodbye. But not Seth. He is a fighter. He chose to stay and fight. I love you, Seth! He weighs a little over 15 lbs now! He loves to pick up snacks from his tray and eat them! He doesnt' like fruits, though. He pushes up all the way with his arms now when he's on his tummy and he doesn't get mad anymore because he knows how to get off his tummy! He could sit up on his own if he would quit arching his back. He grabs for everything! He tolerates his hearing aids ok, but after a while he gets mad, so we give him a break.

Before Grandma and Grandpa left to return to Utah, we threw Seth an early birthday party, just a few days early. So we got to celebrate his birthday twice! Seth liked the ice cream somewhat, although he spit it all up afterwards. He's funny like that. If he doesn't like something, you can guarantee he will throw it up!
