Ryan's First Unbirthday!

Since Ryan's actual birthday fell in the middle of flu season while we were still on preemie-no-germs lockdown, we decided that we would hold off on having people over to celebrate until his adjusted first birthday.  It just so happened that June 29th was the perfect Saturday for his party, and it was also the date my c-section was scheduled for Ryan if we made it that far (he was actually due on July 3rd).  God had other plans for our little man, so he came into our lives on March 20th instead.  We still felt that he deserved to be celebrated for his amazing accomplishments over the past year and 3 months, so here are a few pictures from his "should've been" birthday party!

 We did a turtle theme..."slow and steady wins the race!"
 The birthday boy!

Ryan especially loved seeing one of his primary nurses, Julie, and one of his NICU developmental therapists, Jenn. 

Thank you so much to everyone who came and made this such a special day for Ryan and our family.  And everyone else who was there in spirit, please know that you were missed, but we totally understand. :)  There will be many more opportunities to celebrate Ryan's amazing accomplishments in the future!
