Happy 1st Birthday my sweet Bennett

Tomorrow my baby boy is one year old! What a year we've had.
Bennett was born with an Omphalocele, meaning his organs were in his cord, luckily it was small and we knew ahead of time thanks to the power of the ultrasound. He spent some time in the NICU, recovering from his repair surgery, and now he has a special "one of a kind" belly button :D We joked he was the biggest baby in the NICU, born at a healthy 9 lbs 4 oz and now at one year he is at least 24 lbs all thanks to his mama's milk!
He is a special little guy, very laid back and easy going. He loves to play with his big brother and do everything he does! He is hearing impaired, with a loss of hearing in his right ear, but you'd never know it!
We celebrated his birthday at my mother in laws, and we had so much fun! He even decided to start walking <3
Happy Birthday Bennett, you have been the most amazing little boy and I'm so honored you chose me to be your mother. You've helped me grow in so many ways, and I'm thankful you were the one to complete our family. I love you!
Bennett, just born
Bennett @ 6 months
