B I R T H D A Y S// They only come once a year. Another year has gone by and my son is one year older. I can still remember the smell of the NICU. Just one day old the doctor came in and needed to take Oakland away. He had developed some sort of infection and they needed to run tests right away.
They thought he either had Group B Step or Meningitis. He needed a spinal tap at just 2 days old. This was heartbreaking. The time he was away from us really made us stronger and more dependent on the Lord.
There was absolutely nothing we could do. Eventually the 7 days of antibiotics cured whatever was taking over his infant body and we were able to leave after being in there for a week.
I LOVE planning parties, buying all of the supplies, making things, and seeing my child’s face when they see it all for the first time!
This year Oakland decided to have his birthday at the bowling alley! Tiny Prints had the perfect invitation !! I also found these amazing thank you cards that will allow Oakland to practice his handwriting skills at home!
