1 yr check-up

We're alive! Barely!

We had a great trip home.  It was jam packed like usual but it was great.  Saturday we celebrated birthdays and the day could not have gone any better.  Those pictures are coming.  Tomorrow.

Below are a few pictures from Sawyer's actual birthday...the Thursday before we went home.
I sent his picture into the news so they would announce it -- look at that cutie!!

We went to Cracker Barrel for a nice yummy lunch with lots of veggies.  Then we played around the house.
That night he got to enjoy a cupcake.  He's a pretty big fan of cake! 

I took these pictures during our layover on Monday.  Sawyer did really good on all the flights.  But he was happy here to be able to get down and burn off some energy.

It seems so funny to see him walking around...he seems so small!  And I would say he is officially walking...he really isn't crawling anymore.  And the last couple of days he started standing up on his own so there is really no stopping him now!

We had his 1 year check up Tuesday that turned into a sick visit.  He woke up Tuesday morning and was coughing a little but by that afternoon his cough had turned into a bark.  He has the croup, so they gave him a steroid.  And one of his ears was a little red so she gave us an antibiotic for that.  So, he didn't get any shots -- we'll go back in a couple of weeks for those.

He is much better now.  Back to his happy, playful self.  Thank the Lord!  For a healthy child and for modern medicine!

Here are his stats from the visit:
Weight: 23 lbs 2 oz -- 56%
Height: 29.5 inches -- 42%
Head Circumference: 18.7 inches -- 81%

Ditto! It was a great weekend - it just went by too fast. Can't believe a year has already gone by. Loved spending time with you all. xoxo
