Lyric’s 1st Birthday Wish List

Arrival Date January 21, 2021

Lyric is about to reach his first birthday and it is a significant day as he has overcome so much to be here.

Over 50% of children with CDH do not survive to celebrate their first birthdays and he has certainly defied the odds to be here and thriving. We are so thankful for our Lyrical Miracle.

As much as we wanted to celebrate his big day and shout it from the rooftop with all our friends and family nearby; we have to be mindful of his still small and developing left lung on top of the pandemic. Unfortunately we will be celebrating at home just as our little family but will be taking lots of photos and videos to share of his cake and presents.

These are a few items he could use - the batteries are to keep his toys in order ❤️

Lyric enjoys books, cars and things that go, climbing, and discovering how things work. He also loves food- all foods and all textures - not just baby items. We swear he eats more than we do. His favorite place is anywhere with a good burger or taco.

He is on the verge of 6-9 mos clothing and size 3 diapers.

We added a special section called Lyric’s Tiny Superhero Cape. These patches represent his journey and will be added to his nicu cape.

We are asking everyone to participate in our time capsule project! Please text Amanda a short video wishing him a happy birthday and anything else you would like by Jan 14, 2021 (then I will make a slideshow for his birthday on 1/21/20) at 412-477-3219.

We are also asking everyone to please write and seal a letter to Lyric. These will go into a box (still sealed) to be opened by Lyric on his 18th birthday in the year 2038! Please mail to
