One year ago on this very day, Cade Tate Hunter entered this world - weighing in at 5 lbs and 1 oz. That was also the happiest day of my life. Sadly, the very next day would be one of my saddest with my Grandmother passing away unexpectedly. Just having a c-section, I could not even fly to Atlanta for her funeral. The circle of life is amazing. As one very important person enters your life - another one leaves.
From the moment we learned we were expecting - twins - Tom and I were so excited. In the end, we were blessed with one baby - the most perfect baby (of course we are biased!). Tom picked his first name and he took my late father's name for his middle name. He's a fighter. He's been a fighter from day 1. Although he will never know his twin, he will have a special guardian angel watching him at all times. I never knew how much I could love someone until he arrived in my life. He has changed our lives forever. He is the BEST thing that has ever happened to the both of us.
So, Happy Birthday Cade! Enjoy your day! We love you more than you will ever know!
(of course he's mad in this picture - go figure!)
