Chance is the name we gave our beautiful son. We wanted him to know exactly what he meant to us. He is our chance to become better people, our chance to learn and to grow, our chance at learning how to love unconditionally. This blog is dedicated to our first son. Our hope is that he will read it when he is older and realize just how much he has always meant to us.

Our little man is growing up so fast! Chance just turned 1, we cannot believe it's been a year since he entered our lives. He is so perfect, so amazing, such a blessing to us. He is doing so many cool things now, learning so fast and showing us how smart he is :)

His birthday party was a success, the whole family came to celebrate and Chance was very spoiled :) He was slightly fussy due to just getting vaccines the day before and having to deal with ALOT of people - but he took it all in and had fun :) He got a lot of really cute toys and clothes, thanks to my family for being so generous, he has had a lot of fun playing with his new things. He enjoyed his cake, wasn't exactly sure about the 20 people watching him but he eventually got into it. Heather made an amazing cake for his Monster themed party, it was perfect.

Chance just had Orchiopexy surgery for his undescended testicle and circumcision. While i was a nervous wreck he was cool as a cucumber and recovered quickly. He was very wheezy as he was still getting over a cold and had some issues with the breathing tube, but he was back to normal within a day. He will have some more scars as they had to make quite a few incisions, but they are already disappearing. What's a few more scars?

I am trying to get Chance evaluated for physical therapy as he is still not crawling or pulling up/walking and still needs help getting into a sitting position (although he is getting better with practice). I don't want to get ahead of myself but i think it's definitely time for him to be doing these things, therapy agrees he should be able to, he has no limitations for these things so practice, practice, practice is what we need to be doing, help from a professional would be nice too :)

He is so smart though!

He growls and screams when he wants something or is upset.
He does this funny grimace on command, it's so cute.
He claps when we say "yyaaaayy" or "good job".
He covers his ears and shakes his head no, although he doesn't understand no yet.
He points at things now!
Heather is convinced he says "Heather" although to me it sounds like "hudah!" but hey its similar.
He is learning more and more sounds and babbles.

It's sad to see him not a baby but it's so cool seeing him with such an awesome personality, he truly is my perfect little boy.

Love you Chance!
