Happy 2nd Birthday Tommy

Tom will be 2 tomorrow and our day is filled with fun, fireworks, pool and spending time with close friends. I have ordered an American Flag cake to celebrate with Tom tomorrow. I can not believe he will be 2. He was only 3 months old when Nicholas was dx and there were many nights I was not home with him.

The boys slept over Auntie Michele's house at the Cape last night and Greg, I and Tom drove down today. We had an awesome day and the boys ended up jumping off the bridge and into the water. Colby was very scared but once Greg picked him up there was no going back. Nick had Brittany hold him and two of them just counted to 3 and away they went. As everybody was packing up the beach stuff, I sat with Tom in arms for awhile. It felt so good to hold him and listen to the ocean. Of course as I thought back over the past 2 years and how much Tom has grown tears were coming to my eyes. He has adjusted to his surroundings and continues to challenge us each day. We love you so much Tom.
I forgot to mention that yesterday a playdate for nick turned into a Mohawk. He lookos so cute and it really suits him. I will post pictures of him soon.
Have a safe and happy 4th of July. Karen

Hey guys. I love the pictures. Such a beautiful family. I am glad you guys came down and I got to jump with Nick for our first jump off the boardwalk, and watch Colby jump for the first time. You boys both did awesome. I had such a great day. Happy Birthday Thomas, thanks for sharing the cake. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

Love, Britt
