What is a cupcake, mom?

Although Braden does not eat anything by mouth yet, I though it might be fun for him to feel the texture of the cupcake, and maybe taste a little frosting. We do a lot of hand-over-hand work to teach him he can do things himself. So mommy tried to show him how to put stuff to his mouth. Not sure if he liked it, in fact I think he was just done with the whole picture thing. He slept through the night after we took these pics - he was a tired boy!

We are anxious for our house-guests to come this week, and spent the weekend making room. We are so excited to celebrate all the struggles our little man has overcome this year - and to celebrate the life of this little fighter.

Hope you enjoy the pics...

First Birthday Fun

We spent some time taking pictures, and mostly making handprints and footprints for my scrapbook. mommy found the cute little duckies that reminded me of the duckies at the fundraiser, so she put my thumbprint on them for some family members as a keepsake. I sure gave mommy & daddy a hard time, because you know I like to keep my hand in a fist, especially when I am mad, so the painting got a little crazy - I even got some on my nose! But eventually I settled down and figured out it wasn't so bad, and I let them help me paint. I was sure tuckered out by the end of the night. All the painting and washing and then the final bathing really made me tired, but I am sure mom & dad will have some happy memories to look back on. This weekend mommy plans to post more pictures from my "photo shoot" - feel free to come see us again soon! Thanks for stopping by:-)

Slide Shows to Share

My friend Niki Arena created these slide shows for us (she is AMAZING!!) back in December, and as Braden turns ONE YEAR OLD tomorrow, I wanted to share them with all of you. You may have to install a new program, but the site provides the software to view the albums, and doesn't take to long to load. There are 5 slide shows, that feature Braden up to 8 months old.

Here is the link to view the shows:

Enjoy... tomorrow I will be posting Braden's FIRST YEAR photos!

Spring is here

Pic of baby snuggling with mommy...

And so begins the bouncing around of the weather - jackets and heaters in the morning, and by lunchtime it's windows down and cool air blowing. Braden's respiratory health seems to bounce around along with the weather. We have been lucky enough to experience getting up just once a night, twice this past week... stark contrast to the nights I was up for two hours at a time, and we both were up at least 5 times each if not more. This little guy sure knows how to keep us on our toes.

Daddy is headed for his first trip away from us this week, and mommy is both anxious/nervous to be a single mom... I am excited to get so much QT with my little man too. Pray that I get sleep and keep my sanity as I try to juggle it all by myself. I am already so blessed to have a husband that splits all baby duties with me 50/50.

We are already preparing for little man's birthday party in a few weeks - it's hard to believe our "little" ham will almost be ONE!!
