Has it really been since May?

Wow I'm a bigger slacker than I originally thought!

Okay so since I haven't blogged in 2 1/2 months, I guess I shall play a little bit of catch up.

I don't even know where to start.

The month of June went by quick. Kaeden finished up his first year of school. It was exciting and kind of crazy all in the same. Now we are just a few weeks away from 1st grade!

Brennan turned 9 months the middle of June, right before we left to go on vacation.

Kaeden, Brennan and I went to Tennessee for about a week and a half while Chad was gone on business. Our trip was awesome and Brennan got to meet everyone and see ViVi again!

After spending 10 days in Chattanooga, I took the boys to Florida to meet daddy and continue our vacation with Grandma and Grandpa!

 Brennan at his first pancake:
 He did not like the 4th of July :(

 He met his great grandma in Savannah

 We went back to Tennessee and the boys got to hang out with their cousin.

 We had a surprise party for Kaeden since it was just a few days until his birthday!

We came back right before Kaeden's birthday and he had a fun time on his birthday at Chuck E Cheese. The weekend after, he had a sleep over with his friends and a pokemon training camp theme.

Brennan turned 10 months July 18. He was 21lbs 12oz and 29 inches.

Aside from our trip, we haven't done too much this summer. It's been a nice pace and I'm so thankful for that. Brennan started sleeping through the night with a little tough love about 10 days ago and that has been a huge blessing.

August started out with a BANG! On the first, my mom turned 50! She is so wonderful and amazing, it was hard to be away from her on her big, special day. She is so beautiful, it's hard to believe she's a half century old (I know she's going to love reading that part-HAHA)

August 2nd, my step dad got a call for a liver transplant. His surgery was complete the evening of the 2nd and so far, while things haven't been perfect with God's guidance everything is going very well. He is currently being moved out of the critical care unit and into a normal transplant recovery room.

Yesterday was my birthday. I had a great day. Chad and I had sushi without the kids, and some friends of ours had us over for dinner. Chad and the boys got me a beautiful Brighton charm bracelet. I'm in love. Chad also had the cake decorators on base do a wonder woman cake for me and it was AWESOME. Pop got mom's phone while she was away and called me to wish me happy birthday- can you believe it- less than 48 hours after a 7 hour surgery!!! and probably the biggest event was Brennan officially let go of the couch and took his first steps! It really was one of the best days I could have ever asked for.

That brings me to today. I vow not to go 2 1/2 months again (well, not until next summer anyway). Hope the update with all the pictures was worth the wait :D
