For a while now, I’ve been wanting to add some lifestyle posts to our little blog. I think along with sharing Dex’s medical journey, we’ll start sharing our every day happenings and how life is on a weekly basis with him! Between school, therapies , slowly renovating our home, and everything in between – we have lots to share!
So… Here’s a weekend round up!
We had the pleasure of joining Jacqui of Baby Boy Bakery at her Summer Kick off event and the boys had a blast. Sometimes, Dex has trouble adjusting to new faces and I was a little concerned about how calm he would be. I took both boys by myself so there was also some added stress, haha! I said a little prayer and off we went!
We were at a very familiar venue so that made it so much easier for the boys to feel relaxed…
They enjoyed being free to run around and had fun playing with the other kids too. It was such a relaxing event and supported such a good cause that we can’t wait to do it again!
Remember a while back when we talked about milestones and how Dex is a bit behind on a few things? Well, this weekend he decided to catch up on his sorting and he was very proud of himself ( as were we)! We won’t talk about how baby brother pushed all of the cars over, ha!
We were driving around our neighborhood and one of the neighbors had a backyard plant sale. There were so many things I fell in love with including so many potted cacti I wanted! I was able to bring home a little Hoya plant for our porch and she’s so pretty. The very sweet gentlemen took a liking to Dex and let him pick out his own plant. He chose the cutest little guy and was satisfied with his choice! Good job buddy! I can’t wait to go back when he has the sale again and that beautiful cactus is ready!
Proud little guy with his cute plant.
If you follow my Instagram ( @mrsbrum) you may have seen that Dex just finished his first season of baseball! It has been such an amazing thing to see him get so excited about baseball. Our city’s little league offers a program for kids with special needs and as soon as Dex turned four we signed him up! On our very first game, he wasn’t too sure about it, but by game 3 he was all in! All of the parents and kids were so welcoming to us and we are so grateful for them. Mike had the opportunity to help coach and he feels so blessed to have had this experience. We can’t wait to play again next season! Here’s a few snaps from our league picnic!
Our super creative team mom made these adorable gifts for each player ( of course this brought me to tears ) and did an amazing job.
Our local Sheriff dept. came and let the kids exlpore the car! Dex had such a fun experience.
Of course Reed found the only patch of sand around our set up!He actually ate something other than Graham crackers too! Hallelujah , haha!
Thanks for making it this far and I hope you all enjoy this week!
