Happy Birthday Alex!!!

Today Alex turned 2! I can't believe how fast the last 2 years have gone by. Seems like yesterday we were living at Primary's waiting for the day that Alex would be able to come home for the first time.

We had a birthday party for Alex last Sunday. All the kids had a blast, there was lots of good food, and of course Aunt Karen's wonderful birthday cakes. Alex had a blast running and playing, and opening his presents (of course he had lots of help from big sister and a couple of cousins).

Alex loved putting his money in his new piggy bank!

Cousin Jarrett was sitting patiently to the side waiting for a time he could help open presents!

Having fun playing around with big brothers, Andrew and Conner!

Isn't he adorable??

Alex's last cardiology visit was on February 25th. He goes every 8 weeks now for visits, and we are happy that he is doing so good that we can space his visits that far. Alex is still slowly gaining weight, but it is going up. That's all we can ask for I guess. Everything looks good with Alex, he received the perfect heart and there are no concerns and nothing his doctors are even watching for that could become a concern.
Alex -- Mommy and Daddy are so proud of how big you are getting, how smart you are becoming, and how wonderful you are doing. You are truly our little miracle. We are grateful for all you have taught us and all you have given to our family during your first 2 years. We look forward to watching you grow bigger and learn even more. Keep that smile on you face buddy! We love you so much Alex!
