For McKenna's birthday we stopped off at the store to get her some balloons and a little teddy bear. On the way over Conner loved playing with the balloons.
I can't believe it has already been 3 years since this little angel was born. We miss he so much and love her unconditionally. It is hard for me as she gets older . I find myself always thinking what she would be doing right now. If she would be a little girly girl. and love princesses and the color pink. I can't wait til the day I can see my little baby girl.
AJ and I made it a tradition that we would have a tree that we would set up every Christmas for McKenna. It is our "Angel" tree.. Well this year I decided I would let Conner help me. WOW.. can I say what a chore to put up such a small tree. It was alot of fun though and he LOVED it. he was so cute. and I would point at it and say sissy.. and he would point at it and say "sissy" It is so cute it almost brings me to tears he can do that this early. He looks at pictures of her and knows who it is.
Conner I think undecorated the tree faster then I could decorate it. He would rip an ornament off and hand it to me pretty much as I put them on. It was so much fun though and he made me laugh
All I can say is this Christmas is going to be so hard. He wont leave that tree alone. We havent had a chance to really set Christmas up, I just wanted to set McKenna's up before her birthday. We will have to see how setting the big one up goes.
I am so excited for Christmas this year because of this little guy. He is going to be so much fun.
A few weeks ago Conner had his tonsils and adnoids out. Ever since Conner was born , he has always been a little stuffed up even if he wasn't sick. It took months and months of trying to figure out what was wrong. When we changed pediatricians, (which I just LOVE his pediatrician now) she noticed that his tonsils were rather large for his age. We kept a good eye on them until just a few months ago when our specialist we were sent to demanded he get a sleep study. WELL...... his sleep study results were Terrible..... so we scheduled surgery as soon as we could.
This is Conner after surgery. He did so amazing. Especially for how young he was. All the nurses at primary's just loved him and thought he was the cutest thing ever. But who wouldn't!
Conner had to stay over night so they could keep and eye on his oxygen levels. He hated the little board and wrap they had to put on him because of his IV. There wasn't that much to do . We took him on a little wagon ride around the inside of the hospital and he liked that. It was so funny though because our room was just a little tiny one. it had a glass sliding door and huge window. We were right by the nurses desk, so when Conner would get bored he would walk over to the door and bang on it with his IV hand. He loved to hit with that thing and I was SO glad when they finally took it off. We are so glad this is over with and Conner is a different baby.. He is so much more happy now that he can actually breath normal. He is sleeping better at night too.
We celebrated conner's birthday that weekend. Conner got sooo many toys. From little People sets to blocks. He also got a big ball pit from my sisters. I love the 200 balls that are scattered around my house everyday. KayLee had a good time helping him open all his presents.
It is all worth it though . He loves all his toys. My family came to see the football game. :) GO BYU!!
My sister Heather is so amazing at making cakes. She makes them for everyone's birthdays. She made Conner this CUTE Elmo cake. It turned out so good!
He Loved it.
And was Definitely Covered in it.
We had two birthday parties. This is the birthday party with AJ's side of the family.
He scored with getting so many times to dig into cakes. He definitely entertained everyone.. :)
This is the cake we got for everyone else to eat Because we got Conner his own cake to dig into. It was a Thomas the Train cake. It was so cute.
Why is everyone singing?????
Conner was so good at unwrapping all of his presents.
A needed trip to our cabin! My family has a cabin up in Timberlakes. It is so nice to get away. It is so beautiful up there. This was Conner's first time . Conner LOVED this Hammock. He could have just sit in it all day if we let him.
Cooking dinner outside:)
Conner Loved being outside. so many new things to see and explore!
I will be posting pictures of his Birthday party and all his toys and presents this weekend. My goal is to get caught up on all my postings this weekend.. Lets see if I can do it:) We have had lots of fun adventures to share.
I made a little cake for Conner so I could have Brianna take a few cute pictures of him with it. When I first put the plate down he just kinda looked at it, and then looked back up at me. I think he was thinking "Mom, are you really gonna let me do this? "
At first he just tasted a little bit. I could tell he LOVED it!
This face is PRICELESS!!!!
He would get so excited and just keep grabbing at the frosting. He would get so much frosting on his hands that he would flip his hands to get it off. By the end , the wall was covered in frosting.
He is Conner going to Town on his cake. I think he liked the frosting better then the cake. He was a mess. I could tell at the end though he was getting bugged by all the stickiness and frosting all over him. It Definitely was time for this little boy to take a bath!
