Chris's Shoulder Surgery

Before...still smiley but hungry...nothing makes you hungry like someone telling you that you can't eat. Back home with his shoulder padded like he was going to play football.
But still able to slap on a smile...gotta love the drugs :D
So Thursday before the sun even came up we headed over to the hospital for Chris's shoulder surgery. For those who don't know, he damaged his shoulder on his mission and has dealt with pain and dislocations since. This last year has been particularly hard so we decided to get it fixed. Chris really likes his doctor and things went really smoothly. The doctor said that he could have the pictures of the actual surgery next week when he goes in for his check up. So when he brings those home I will scan them and add them to this post. The doctor went in arthroscopically and was very optimistic about the whole thing and said Chris should be in much less pain...once he heals up from the surgery of course.

The Rest of The Party

Here is Aden on his new bike! :D

So while I was taking and editing pictures the guests played games and decorated their hero capes. Presents and cake and ice cream followed. All in all a great party thanks to everyone who came. Aden LOVED the hero theme and ran around in his cape and loved showing off his Spiderman cake.

Random Cuteness and Raleigh Update

It has been a while since I have just done a status update on this little prince. He is now walking...which as predicted by Grandpa, happened just before Christmas. He had his one year check up in late November where we found out he is average in height and weight but has an exceptionally large head. He is super smart...which may explain the large head....and he loves shape sorting and feeding himself. He is now learning animal sounds and can imitate a horse, cow, sheep, and of course a monkey :D.
So what could be better than a great Binki in the morning..... ...two Binkis at once of course!
This little man is a vacuum fiend....he wants a turn every time I vacuum....although he isn't so good at waiting his turn. He sure is cute though :D
