So every time I usually take Mr. Paxton to the Dr. is not really sick, but today was a different story. He has bronchilitis? fun breathing treatments every four hours for a week!! Gratefully his is a mild case and he is expected to recover fully... and I don't have to wake him up a night. He is so dramatic as a sick child. I don't think his feet have hit the floor in three days, he is a permanent attachment to his mother's right hip. The fun thing is that Paxton is not a cuddly baby at all, always on the move, and he is so cuddly as a sick baby. Mom is loving it! He even slept/cuddled in bed with us last night because we were worried about him. I thought all would need to see his really cute dinosaur breathing treatment mask and his sad is not as pitiful as he is making it look!!

Birthday Party #2

What did you say another party...presents!! Only a daddy could help do this job!! Don't bother me, I am trying to show Drew something!
Well...this weekend was the first time we have ever left Paxton for more than 24 hours. Thursday night we drove to Emory to meet Big Daddy and Grandma so they could keep him for the weekend. Rusty and I headed to San Antonio for Kate Osborn Martin's baby Annabelle is due soon. We had so much fun, we shopped all Friday in San Marcos and then enjoyed fun fellowship Saturday with the Martins and Walls. The boys played golf and the girls shopped after the shower. Like old times, we loved hanging out with cherished friends. Then after a 6 hour drive to East Texas we celebrated with Rusty's family Paxton's birthday again. Big Daddy and Grandma were in Alaska for the June 10th birthday so we had a make up one. Gave us an excuse to eat cake and see Baby Drew again! So it was a cross Texas tour that ended Monday with our 12th week OB appt to hear Baby #2's heartbeat. Beating strong at 166! It was a great weekend and though we missed Paxton we loved hanging out with each other and old friends. We are so blessed!
Special note: I will inform you that upon arriving to Grandma's house my precious boy wanted nothing to do with his mommy...he only had eyes for his DAD. I told myself that it was because it was Father's Day and Paxton has the best dad ever!!! (gives him baths, does manly things, and puts him to bed...much more too) However, after a couple hours he only wanted his mommy so that made up for earlier, even sleeping in bed and cuddling with her for the first time ever.

Happy Birthday

Paxton didn't quite know what to do with all the presents Paxton's first cake!!
The party favors It is true all the presents and they only want the BOX...
He is really concentrating on the cake!
So as you know Paxton is officially ONE YEARS is crazy how time flies. It seems like only yesterday I was so sad to be driving yet again to the NICU to see my precious baby boy. We had a great celebration, a few family and friends. It was so funny how quiet a one year old party is...they all just sat and looked at each other. Paxton had a dog themed party and invited everyone to have a dog-gone good time at his house. The cake was precious and matched the invites, Paxton has his own personal cake to enjoy. I thought with the way he eats he would chow down, but by the time cake came he could barely smile to enjoy it. Everyone enjoyed hot dogs and ate out of their own dog bowl. Everyone received Doggie treats for their own dogs as party favors. It was such a special milestone and we have enjoyed every minute of time that he has blessed our lives, even the night times:) Also, thank you so much to Randy and Tonya without Tonya we would have no pictures of this special event.

Memorial Day...

So...I am a little behind in the postings. For Memorial Day we went to our future neighborhood of Country Ridge for a celebration. Everyone was to decorate their vehicle and meet at the flagpole. It was really neat we honored all the vets that lived in our neighborhood and then had a parade to the park for hot dogs. The funny part is that out there everyone has about 2-3 acres a piece and all the families have golf carts/mules/four wheelers to get around with, when you go out there all the kids are cruising from pool to pool in them. Paxton was kinda embarrassed in his wagon. We had to put the wagon in the truck and go that way to the park, his little wagon and mommy could not keep up with the four wheelers. On a serious note it was a great reflection on how we are so Thankful to the men and women who have and do risk their lives for our freedom...and their families too:)
