My Baby turned 2!!!

When I saw this picture I cried. It resembles so much to me the surgery Ty and I had. Two years ago at a complete low point in my life when I felt the my world was crumbling. I embarked on a journey to a new city in hope of a miracle. I had a "risky" experimental surgery on me and Tyson while he was still in the womb at 26 weeks gestation. I was scared to death. Before the doctors gave me Anesthesia I felt and overwhelming calmness. I knew heavenly father was with me. I knew he was guiding the surgeons. I knew it would work out. I knew I was making the right decision and I knew I would be watched over and protected. I Never imagined that the most awful time in my life would turn out to be the most beautiful, precious little spirit that no one can comprehend. I feel so grateful for this experience and to be Tyson's Mom and witness a true miracle.

He is still pretty little but I guess when you start at 4lb.s you don't get too much of head start. He is in 5 percentile for height and weight.

Tyson turned two on May 5, it seems crazy that two years ago I was in San Francisco on my journey with him. I think of everything I went through and I know in a minute I would do it all over again. He is proving everyone wrong with his ability to walk and high function. He is determined just on his own time frame. He is such a fun little boy! I just wish he would stay little forever.

Fun facts about Tyson at age 2:

Ty started taking about four steps on his own. I know scream and jump up and down. I feel like I have waited forever. Nothing more rewarding then seeing something that I was told would never happen. I have traveled to countless hours of therapy to help Ty walk. Thanks Ty for not giving up.

He loves the outdoors, he would walk a mile for me just to go outside.

He is a big tease and makes his sister squeal.

He is so lovable. He loves to cuddle on moms shoulder every day and it melts my heart.

He loves is blanket, he puts the fleece in his mouth to go to sleep.

He is the best natured kid especially after everything he has been through.

He loves balls and has quite the arm on him.

He LOVES food. He eats anything. He eats way more then his sister.

He says about 4 words when he wants to, mom, dad, Ty, outside.
