Dylan is ONE!

I know everyone says this, but seriously...I can NOT believe Dylan is ONE!! As I was going through some pictures today from when he was first born and throughout his first year, they all seem like they just happened yesterday, so how can he possibly be a whole year old!?!

We feel incredibly blessed to have Dylan in our family. He is such a sweet, happy boy and is honestly such a joy to have around. He has this smile that lights up a room and it's hard to not be happy or smile when you are around him. We love him SO much!!

In remembrance of this past year, I picked out a couple pictures from each month of Dylan's first year of life. What an incredible year!

Life wouldn't be the same without you!


  1. Katie - Thanks for your encouraging words! It has not been an easy journey as Jack's case is not so 'black and white' - well I guess not many are. We are trusting that God will see us through and have confidence Jack will do just fine! I won't lie - the day of surgery will be a very difficult one at that. I will also be thinking of you and Dylan in a few weeks. It would be so good to email/talk back and forth about experiences and such. My email is

  2. My husband and I have a friend whose son was born with the same condition. They made the decision to amputate his leg when he was 8 years old. They found out the hard way that trying to keep up with a growing boy is just too hard while managing a brace. Their son wanted the amputation. He told his parents that it would be easier and less painful. He was right!!! When he recovered from the amputation he never slowed down. When you see him walking in the local Walmart you would never know he has a prosthesis. He will tell you in a heartbeat that this was the best decision ever!!!!

    I know it is hard to make such a decision with a baby, however, I think the healing process and learning curve is so much easier while they are young!!(I am a RN).

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery!!! :)

  3. He is absolutely beautiful! Good luck with everything. ((hugs))
