Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.

Yup, our little Teddy Bear is ONE YEAR OLD today.

Too many times in the last year (plus), we were uncertain if we’d be celebrating a first birthday for Mr. Teddy. And here we are! And at home, even, which is just an added bonus.

The story of his early days can be found on this blog in the posts from about a year ago. Today hasn’t been as emotional as I thought it would be. I think the big days for me will be coming up in December.

So, Teddy doesn’t eat orally, but we thought we’d give it a go with the cake. The plate was way more fun (and tasty), but he did end up accidentally getting some crumbs in his mouth and he did not vomit. so… WIN!

Cake came from Icing Smiles, an awesome organization that provides cakes to kids with serious medical issues.
