Riley Turns 10!

It seems appropriate to celebrate Riley’s Tenth Birthday under Hurricane Isaac skies.  He had a wonderful time swimming  yesterday, all of Florida closed down for hurricane watch.  Here is the first photo of Riley.  It was taken by a UCLA Santa Monica NICU nurse nearly 24 hours after his traumatic birth.  The Poloroid commemorates the 3:30 am receiving of the Baptismal and Annointing of the Sick Sacraments (formerly known as Last Rites).  It has been quite a ten year journey and I still cannot imagine where it goes from here. 

We sent him off to school with celebratory birthday foods.  These aren’t the typical cupcakes found in the classroom but already prepared and mushed fruit and pie fillings that Riley and his classmates can handle.  Yum!

Happy Birthday Riley!
