You started your 5th year off by looking at open heart surgery. You didn’t know it at the time though, and NOW I’m glad I never told you since it never happened. We soon found out that they didn’t see the need for it right now. Praise God!
So I as soon as I found that out, I called to ask it was ok if you played t-ball. We were given the ok since it wasn’t competitive sport, yet… so soon you were practicing t-ball for your first year. You wouldn’t let your daddy leave your side for anything, good thing he was able to stay on the field as an assistance coach. You never got the competitive spunk to go after the ball, but you could hit that ball and run them bases like lighting. I always feared that your heart defect would keep you from enjoying any sports, but I accepted that fact. Once I found out you were ok to play them for now I was soo happy!! Knowing you would enjoy them. You ended the t-ball season on May 28, 2011.
|Getting ready with daddy by your side!|
|My lil slugger...with you're awesome helmet! :)|
|Hanging out with Momma and Daddy as the only child for the last 30 mins!|
|Anxiously waiting for Daddy to see your baby sister...with Great Memaw by your side!|
|Such a proud big brother!|
|Your first time "holding" her...you thought she was too little to hold. :)|
We started off your summer with bringing home your sister. It was such a fun, busy, HOT, summer. That summer beat the record books for the most consecutive over 100 days. I believe it was 63 or so.
You always LOVE the fourth of July! Ever since we started our own little family tradition going to Denton, Tx to watch their fireworks show the Kiwanis put on every year! First time to do it as a family of FOUR!!
|My lil man!|
|It never fails...we always have to do a silly face picture just for you! :)|
|HA. Daddy was having fun... really he was. It was just hot and I think|
he was tired of me taking pictures already! :)
|My pride and joys!|
|This is an older picture of you and him before we moved|
into our new house, but it's my favorite of you and him.
We Love you Brownie!
You had another heart check up on December 19th…and we got good results!! The Enalapril is working! It’s helping your little heart pump away. The measurement of your left ventricle has…DECREASED! Praise God! Of course we don’t know how long this will last, but we’ll take it! We got another ticket for worry free for 6 months! Ha.
|You and the amazing Lizzie! :)|
Then you started t-ball up again on February 22nd. You started it just as you was ending basketball since your last game of that was February 25th. You sure do keep us busy during basketball and baseball seasons! But I have to admit, I enjoy it! : ) You’re currently practicing twice a week. Every Wednesday and Fridays! Opening day is March 24 so your games should be starting sometime after that! You seem to be enjoying more this year and actually with practice without your daddy near by! I think it helps having 3 kids just from your class this year and a few more who was in your class last year! Can’t wait until the games start!
Well I think that pretty much sums up all you’ve been up to this past year. You started off weighing 43.3 lbs and was 45 ins tall...and ended it weighing 49.8lbs and 47 1/2 ins tall. You're still in the 90% for height and 75% for weight. Looks like you're going to be tall and skinny like your daddy! I can’t wait to see how much you grow and learn this next year! I love you baby boy!!! Yes you are a baby and always will be MY baby no matter how old you get! : ) I love you to the moon and back!!
