Today Cody turns 11. It is the first time since his birth that Easter falls on his birthday. The next time this will happen, he will be turning 22.
Happy birthday sweet boy. You are amazing!
I re-post his birth story every year on his birthday. As you read it, simply replace the “six years ago” with “eleven years ago.
It still gives me chills to read. He was born too early and the experience has impacted my life, changing so much in how I view and interact with the world.
p.s. – if you have never read it before, don’t worry, there are no gross details. It was an emergency C-section and both Cody and myself were knocked out during it.
