Two less tonsils in this house

This little babe of mine went in for surgery a couple of days ago. 

 So long large tonsils and adenoids, hello tubes.  Hopefully now he can hear and start speaking more clearly.  I am going to miss the little game we play around here called who the heck knows what Baylor is trying to say?  Dax usually won. 

Now we just get to chill at home until he feels better.

Happy 5th Baylor

I have a new favorite 5 year old!
Happy Happy Birthday, Baylor Von.  
We started the festivities a couple days early when grandma and grandpa squeaker came to visit with his cake

Then the next day we celebrated birthday's for Baylor and Elle
 Look at the cupcakes Kenzie made for them.  So cute!

and today we celebrate the real deal.  We woke everyone up bright and early so he could open presents before older brothers got on the bus for school.  It's torture to make a 5 year old wait until 8 at night when everyone is home to open them.  

and just because I need to always remember the miracles that have happened in my life here is a flashback to 5 years ago

We've come a long way kiddo.  
We love you Bay!

It's finally done(ish)!!!!

Finally!!!   We have carpet in our basement!  
A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into finishing this on our own.  
I really do believe we will appreciate it more because of it.  
I know that I appreciate the fact that Nate and I survived each other through the process. 

It's not 100% finished (more trim and odds and ends still. and the bathroom, but that won't be for awhile.) but it is livable.  
As soon as the carpet guys left Grif had his bags packed ready to make the move down there. I guess he was tired of sleeping on Dilon's bedroom floor.  Plus he has missed his full size bed this last year (can you believe it has been a year since we moved out of our old house?!?).  The kid has been in heaven the last couple of nights.  
I'm also in heaven --- new. carpet. smell. Enough said.

Preschool for Baylor

My baby started preschool yesterday.
He was the first kid I didn't get to take to his first day of school.  
I didn't shed a tear but that's only because I was at work.  I work the days he is at school so I am never going to get to drop him off or pick him up.  Lame.  
Nate was a slacker and didn't get his first day of school pic (don't dads know these things are important?) so I had to snap a shot after I got home from work. Still counts, right?
Such a handsome little fella.
