Anthony is 6 months old!!!

Anthony is 6 months old today! Today is also special because it means that Anthony has now spent more time home with us than he did in the hospital.

Here is a photo montage to mark the day. There's music with it, so turn your volume on. The words to the song are below- enjoy!

"Wonder"
Doctors have come from distant cities
Just to see me
Stand over my bed
Disbelieving what they're seeing
They say I must be one of the wonders
Of god's own creation
And as far as they can see they can offer
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She'll make her way

People see me
I'm a challenge to your balance
I'm over your heads
How I confound you and astound you
To know I must be one of the wonders
Of god's own creation
And as far as you can see you can offer me
No explanation

O, I believe
Fate smiled and destiny
Laughed as she came to my cradle
Know this child will be able
Laughed as she came to my mother
Know this child will not suffer
Laughed as my body she lifted
Know this child will be gifted
With love, with patience and with faith
She'll make her way

  2. WOW! A Wonder Indeed! I'll have to say Susan and Paul are wonders themselves - with patience, perseverance, determination, and having a HUGE amount of love for each other, they welcomed and began to nurture their son six months ago. What a journey. What a miracle.
    Happy 1/2 Birthday, Anthony. I love you and miss you. Have a great day with your mom & dad (and Arnold).

  3. Happy Birthday, Anthony!! Ellie loved to slide show! Though she didn't watch it, she squealed along as she heard the song. :)
