We had a big big weekend. We celebrated James' big 2nd birthday on Saturday with quite a party. Tents, kiddie pool, slide (that quickly turned into a water slide), BBQ, guns, bows, cupcakes. What more could you ask for? You know it's a good party when 2 kids are naked within a few minutes.
He's been a little off food lately, we think because he is getting so much by tube, he's just truly not hungry. So he didn't display much interest in the cupcakes (here's hoping for next year!). But he did poke it. It's a start.
The best part about the party was that both my parents were here. I love seeing James with Nonna and Poppa. Up until pretty much now, he was so clingy to me, he wasn't as close with them as I would have wanted. But he's got the drill now and I love it!! (and so do they!).
Of course, Sunday was Father's Day, which I hadn't spent with my dad in too long to remember. Aside from a hay unloading debacle where Tom pretty much worked aaallll ddaaayyy, we met up in the evening for some excellent grass fed steaks on our wood fire grill. I think the boys were pretty happy.
I have to say, I lucked out in the dad department, and so lucked out in the husband/father to James department. Tom is so involved with all of James' therapy and is so helpful in what could be a very trying situation to a marraige and life in general. I'm so blessed to have such an amazing partner through all of this, and I couldn't do it without him!
