Caitlin's 2 Year Old Pictures

Well it was that time again to get new pictures of Caitlin. She did so good!! The photographer said that she was the best 2 year old she has ever worked with. Caitlin smiled great and stayed posed for all the pictures. They also said that because she took such beautiful pictures, they would probably put her pictures up in the studio next Christmas. What a beautiful little girl we have!

Caitlin's 2nd Birthday

Today was Caitlin's 2nd birthday. It was fun to see her be able to blow the candles out on her cake. She didn't get very messy with her cake only because we did it kind of late and I think she wasn't that interested and tired. She did have fun opening her cute presents and Hunter got in on the action as well. When you ask Caitlin how old she is, she replies with "two" as she tries to hold her fingers to show you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAITLIN!!!

What a position!

So I thought this was so funny. Hunter fell asleep in his wheelchair in the funniest position. It doesn't even look very comfortable, but he stayed that way for a few minutes. I love sleeping pictures and think they are so precious.

Santa Clause

This year we missed out on seeing Santa at Costco. They have the best set up and it works better for Hunter. So our only other option was to go to our neighborhood party. I arranged for us to be able to be there early with Santa before everyone else showed up. Needless to to say Santa was late and another family showed up while we were there. Hunter didn't do well. That is why there is one picture with all of us in it. It was the only way to get a picture of Hunter at least by Santa. Caitlin was very hestitant to sit on Santa's lap but we finally got her to do it and she didn't even cry. What a big girl!

Santa's Reindeer

I took Caitlin to see the reindeer at Thanksgiving Point. She thought it was pretty neat! It was fun to see her reaction to them. What a fun experience to share with her :)

Hunter's new onsies

So I think most of you know all about Hunter by now. He has grown so much and it was time to figure out what we were going to do about onsies. The 24 month ones were getting too small for him. I also wanted something that was adapted for his g-tube. It was such a pain to have to undress him everytime we fed him. A friend of mine talked to someone she knew about making some onsies for me. She agreed to give it a shot. I was so impressed with her work. She came and measured Hunter and got to work. This is the finished product. It is so nice to have the easy access opening to his g-tube. Now all I have to do is lift his shirt and open the flap. IT IS WONDERFUL!! I think so many others could benefit from this idea. I am still working on a way to market this, but for now I am just glad that I found someone to help me. I had her make me 10 of them. They should last us quite awhile.

Say Cheese!

Everytime you take Caitlin's picture she says "cheese". I thought this was a really cute picture.


Caitlin had her first real injury. She went to grab the curling iron and thankfully I caught her and she barely burned one finger. She cried pretty hard, poor thing. But we put a bandage on it and she thought that was pretty cool. It healed fast and she is all better now.

Thanksgiving Point Pumpkin Fest

So this post is out of order, but I didn't have the pictures to put on here when I was posting Halloween pictures. We took the kids to Pumpkin Fest at Thanksgiving Point. The Angels Hands Foundation was having an activity and so we took advantage of getting in free! There were a lot of activities to do. Caitlin loved the slides and her balloon crown (which I didn't get a picture of). The weather was getting cold and it was about to rain so we hurried through everything. As you can see, I forgot my camera and so we had to buy a disposable one there. I don't think Dwayne knew that he bought a Halloween camera. So needless to say I am stuck with all of the sayings at the bottom of each picture.
