Happy Birthday Little Angel

by Fat Daddy, Esq. on October 21, 2010

Thing 1 is six years old today. She has come a long way from that fragile premature baby pictured above. When she was born, she weighed just over five pounds and had to have intestinal surgery the night after she was born. She ended up spending a month in the neonatal intensive care unit before she finally came home. That was an extremely difficult month, wondering if she would be alright and when we would be able to come home.

Today, except for the scars on her belly, you would never know what a rough start she had. She excels in school and has a wonderful demeanor. I really admire her inquisitiveness and drive to learn. She continues to amaze her mommy and me with her cleverness and wit.

Even when she is upset she makes me laugh. She got mad the other day and stomped off to her room. When she arrived at the doorway, seeing that her door was still off its hinges due to some home renovation, she declared, “If I had a door I would slam it!”

She is truly a delight and I am so proud to be her daddy.
