What A Blessing Skylar Turns 3

Skylar at the stroke of midnight, all excited about his Birthday, daddy and i got to sing him Happy Birthday!


Skylars 2nd Birthday





Skylars Birthday 4/4/05






Skylars 1st Birthday








April 4 2005 we were blessed a very healthy, happy little baby boy, who we named Skylar Dean, he came into this world at 6 lbs 13 ounces and was only 19" long. He was perfect!!! At age 11 months we found out about SMA, and were devastated. But what SMA didnt know, was that we were all fighters. SMA takes 50% of the children born with it before there 2nd Birthday, and there is no way to say how long a child will live. I call it the mother of guessing games (one I dont like very much) But what else SMA didnt know was beyond the diagnoses, was a family built of love and structure, and family that would do what ever needed to be done to protect and better Skylars life. Skylar is our little miracle, never would I have ever believed that one little child could teach so much... unconditional love is abundant in our home, in our lives... we see it each and every day as the cutest little person Ive ever known looks up at you and smiles, tells you he loves you and just enjoys each and everyday. Skylar Im so very very proud to be your mommy, and Im so excited to be celebrating your 3rd Birthday, I know there will be many more to come, and I can not wait to see what you have to show the world. We Love You So Much!!!!
