Happy 1st Birthday, Kohl

By: Mom and Dad

One year ago today, you came into our lives.  In only 365 days, you have touched more lives than most people are ever able to.  We sincerely believe that everything happens for a reason and that we were always meant to have you.

You are a very special little man, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for you.

We love you very much.


Below is a modified version of a slideshow we created that chronicles Kohl’s first year.  The musical backdrop is Natalie Merchant’s song “Wonder.”  We had already heard of the song before, but it was interesting to learn the details behind it after a friend sent us to this link – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TZ-v5BW-pQ

Essentially, the song is about a woman who overcame seemingly insurmountable problems she was born with, in part because she was surrounded by love.  All manly insecurities I once had about genuinely enjoying Natalie Merchant disappeared and, needless to say, the song has taken on new meaning for us since Kohl was born.
