Happy Birthday TUCKER!

Happy Birthday TUCKER!

We believe all children are miracles and special in their own way, but baby Tucker holds an extra special place in everyone’s hearts.
NICU
Tucker was born on September 2, 2020. He spent 10 days in the NICU during the height of COVID before being able to join his older brother and sister at home with his parents. Tucker has Coarctation of the Aorta, which is a critical congenital heart defect in which a part of the aorta is narrower than usual.  He will continue to get monitored and gets echocardiograms often.  We are praying for a miracle that it corrects itself, but we are truly blessed on how fortunate we are that he is as healthy as he can be. 
Being a pandemic baby has pros and cons. Tucker has had the undivided attention of his immediate family but is just now getting to know his extended family and fellow pandemic baby friends. Tucker is starting to say a few words and is very close to walking!

Last weekend Tucker celebrated his first birthday with a backyard campfire, s’mores, and cake. He reminded us all of just how precious life is when he suddenly choked on a piece of watermelon. Thankfully, we were able to help him in time but it was a sobering reminder to hug your loved ones every chance you get and to recertify in CPR.
Tucker is a sweet soul with a taste for adventure and we can’t wait to see where he takes us! Happy first birthday, Tucker!
