Happy Birthday Colton!

Colton turned 9 on Saturday! All of my boys were born in August, so this is a crazy month with birthdays and sports and school starting... but I really look forward to it. Colton was born at 32 weeks. I had to be in the hospital on "hotel stay" for two weeks because the docs couldn't get those blasted contractions to stop. I was given the lovely steroid shots at 30 weeks, so thankfully his lungs were developed. He was in the NICU for three weeks with a feeding tube and in the incubator. Once the docs finally realized that I already had one little guy at home on a feeding tube and I was pretty much an expert at all things "sick babies" they let me take him home! Colton loves his friends. He loves horses, always has. He loves to be loved. He is going to be starting the third grade this year and is so excited for that to start! We went to the Bees game to celebrate his birthday. The Bee signed his new hat and he was stoked! Love that little guy!
