We love you so much daddy! Thanks for taking such great care of me! Your the best!
Brody and I had such a fun time celebrating Mike on his first Father’s Day last week! The celebration began the morning before (due to Mike getting up super early on Sunday) with a breakfast favorite of cinnamon rolls. Lunch on Sunday consisted of heading to Buffalo Wild Wings and an afternoon of long naps J I love how no Sunday, or no celebration for that matter, isn’t complete without naps. Brody insisted on getting his daddy some great gifts. We found a sweet little book called “Thank You God for Daddy”, some new (and very first may I add) running shoes and also some running shorts. A awhile ago my brother convinced Mike to do this crazy man 5K in September. It consists of running through mud, jumping over fire and some other manly things. Anyways, Mike thought he should begin running a bit so he didn’t die during the race. Funny story because now this little 5k has turned into training for a half marathon in December! Crazy yes I know, but I’m so proud of my husband and Brody and I can’t wait to be cheering him on for the 5k in September somewhere in Tulsa and the half marathon in Las Vegas! J Needless to say the guy needed some shoes J
Youth camp was last week also. We loved being able to take Brody and Brod was just made for camp we think. He loved everything about it! The loud music, people everywhere, and being outside so much. His favorite part of camp was not needing to ride in his car seat. Yes, judge us as you may but we didn't strap him into his car seat all week! The camp is kinda spread out, especially where we stayed, and so driving made things easier. This kid of ours LOVED, LOVED, LOVED being behind the drivers seat!
Another youth pastor and his wife brought their boy who is 8 days older than Brod. What fun they had sharing toys, talking to each other, playing together and giving each other icky sicknesses! Unfortunately Brody received his first double ear infection from this kid :( Oh, the consequences of having friends I guess. So I guess Brody loved the first half of camp and the second half was no bueno!
I came home a bit early to take Brod to the Dr and got him on some antibiotics. Poor boy has been miserable these last few days. It's so not fair that sweet little babies get sick! He is doing a whole lot better though and we plan a speedy recovery :)
We keep experimenting with different foods for B's taste buds to try. A huge winner is Barley! Who would have guessed, Mike and I didn't even know what Barley was. We can't give it to his fast enough.
Sweet boy has been receiving lots of baths while being sick. They have been relaxing for him and the steam has helped him to breath. He makes me smile because even in the midst of feeling so crummy he can always squeeze out some happiness and joy :)
