One day he'll stop sleeping like this, and I'm going to be so sad.

1st Day of 1st Grade

My boy is growing up. I can't believe he's going to school all day. :(


Bryton: "Hey Mom, I made a map to outer space...see you just go around here then this way until you get to a place that's really dark."
Me: "What's the really dark place?"
Bryton: (looking at me like I'm not too smart) "Outer space!"

Yeah, obviously.

Birthday Celebration

We hadn't really planned a party for B...given the circumstances, we weren't sure we'd be up for a party and we didn't know what state our house would be in. But, turns out, a 5 year old doesn't care about those things. He just wants to party on his birthday! So we threw a spontaneous birthday party for him and we were very thankful that we had some friends around who could celebrate last minute with us!

I love the look on his face in this picture!

Happy Birthday, B!

5 years ago today, Bryton was born in the early morning hours of Labor Day. Quick (as in only about 3 hours of actual labor & no real pushing), "easy" labor (and by easy I mean easier than 9 lbs 14 oz or shoulder dystocia, but of course not EASY as far as everyday life goes!).

B's favorite things at the moment are soccer, motorcycles, Legos, & music. He also loves to ride his bike & scooter. He is sweet and silly, and he loves to tease. He's currently cuddled up next to me in bed waiting for his brothers to wake up so he can open his presents, and he has requested pancakes with raisins in them for breakfast.

We love this boy! (and he refused to let me take a picture of him this morning!)
