Colby finally came home late this afternoon. He's back to his usual self, talking up a storm, laughing a lot and scooting around the floor.
When I went into the hospital this morning, a large "Happy Birthday" sign was hung on Colby's door along with a balloon. Everyone on the floor knew it was Colby's B-day so it was nice to have the nurses and doctors make mention of it as they visited him. He would repeat either "Heppy" or "B-dee".
After a long couple days, we didn't really do anything for his birthday this evening. The house was a mess from a couple days of us coming and going, we had to unpack and do laundry from the last couple days...and it felt good just simply to be home and relax!!! Both Tracey and I have to juggle work a bit when he's in the hospital, so tomorrow it's back to the real world and digging out in the office.
So our boy is now the big TWO! This past year has brought so many new things and relatively few complications. With his language progressing as quickly as it is and his mobility improving, I'm looking forward the year ahead of us! Happy second birthday my boy!
