Opening Day of Little League

This year we put Hayden in a official Little League called Mountain Ridge.

He is already loving it, and we love the coach and how good he is with 5-6 year olds. Today was the Opening Day for Little League and the first time Hayden has been able to be apart of anything like this. The day started out with team pictures, which took a while. Thankfully....Booges (sorry, for future reference this is what we call Raygen) took a long nap!!! Not long after, every team paraded on the field. Last but not least was all the "t-ballers", which got a huge applause and "how cute's"!!! Then all the older kids already sitting on the field slapped all the t-baller's hands as they went by!! After that was all said and done, ~Hayd participated in Longest throw~

It was a really good day and a lot easier on us that our little baby spitfire was extremely well behaved!!

Star Wars and the Big 5!!!

A couple days before Hayd's actual birthday we did a big family party. We did some simple food, dips, fruit, etc. and of course CAKE!! He was so excited since this year he had a specific list of things he wanted. He was so surprised that everything on that list was given (luckily it was a reasonable list, lol). I am getting used to the fact that the "baby face" is fading fast, but do not like it!!

The best 5 years of my life!!!

This post is for always in my eyes, my little baby boy Hayden!! He is turning 5 on Tuesday!! I can't believe how time flies, and how much my baby has grown. Three months into my pregnancy with him I found out he had what was called, Gastroschisis: is a birth defect in which an infant's intestines stick out of the body through a defect on one side of the umbilical cord. I was devastated finding out what would entail fixing him. He was born and they took him right away for surgery, and then into NICU.
(After his first Surgery -Days old)

He went through 3 surgery's, and stayed 6 weeks in NICU.
(1 month- finally able to hold him, was not able to hold him for first 3 weeks)

After he came home and as months went by, he became what the specialist refers to as "best case scenario".
(Six months and picture perfect!!)

The specialist still uses his pictures in his seminars as what the best case scenario can be. I am thankful everyday for him, and how much of a fighter he is. I am so thankful for his resilience in the things he has had to deal with.

(Hayden's 1st Birthday)

(Hayden's 2nd Birthday)

I love his sense of humor and how he can make himself laugh!! I love watching him interacting with his sister and how much he loves her and absolutely adores her!! He is such a loving caring boy to everyone. We are so glad that he is in our family, and treasure our time with him!! We love you so much Hayd!!

Next post will be his birthday party!!
