Good news all around

He doesn't understand why mommy and grammy keep putting old clothes from daddy on him

Wearing a hat that daddy used to wear at the beach

Wearing one of Papa Huey's outfits from when he was a baby (he looks just like him)

This is what I wake up to every morning

He thinks that GG is pretty funny...

Bronson and Keith meeting for the first time (he recognized that he was a baby)

Eating at Grammies

Trying some bananas with his cereal

Bronson is done with surgery. We left our house at about 5am this morning and returned before 2pm this afternoon. Things went so smoothly and he is doing so good. Praise God for providing us such a good experience this time. We are so glad to report that other than a quick check up, Bronson should be done with all of his medical drama. He is currently sleeping peacefully in his cradle while I write this quick update. I also wanted to report some major cool things that Bronson has been up to lately.

  • Bronson can now eat cereal. He didn't like it at first, but once I added bananas he LOVES IT!!!!

  • He gets up on all fours, not crawling, but moving more daily

  • He sleeps in his own bed and is doing so great at working to sleep thru the night again (surgery in the beginning of June had set him back)

  • He has been to lots of car shows lately

Well, just wanted to catch everyone up with the Deets' family!!!

Well, it has been just about a year since I started writing in this online journal. I remember that last year's 4th of July was mixed with so much anticipation of what was yet to come. I happily pregnant and didn't have any clue of the emotional journey that I was beginning to ride. Last year's 4th was lots of fun, but could not have beat the feeling of this year.

Kyle and I had such a wonderful time with our baby boy on Friday night. We spent the afternoon BBQ hopping as I will call it. Bronson and I started off the day a bit grumpy, but I decided to put him the car and take him to GG's to visit a few relatives. It was nice for him to be able to meet his GREAT-GREAT Grandpa Wafford. He also got to hang out with his cousin Olivia and got smeared with plenty of sticky kisses from her. They love each other so much and I enjoy watching the two of them cuddle up together. Here is a little sneak peak of some of the cute pictures of them together at GG's.

After we left GG's, we went home and picked up daddy and then went over to Auntie Christen's for a BBQ. It felt really weird not having Uncle Jim there (he had back surgery on Thursday and wasn't able to come.) But Uncle Jason came for the event and there was fun had by all. It was so amazing watching his little eyes light up as he watched the fireworks. I wish that I could have captured his excitement in a little bottle to save for later. He even "ahhed" a couple of times. It was so precious.

Today we went to the annual Philomath Car Show to watch daddy win his 3rd award for "Best Corvette." It was lots of fun. Bronson had fun getting his picture taken with our family friend Alyssa Miller, Philomath Frolic and Rodeo Queen and car hopping from car to car getting his cute face photographed. We finished the night visiting Uncle Jim and watching a movie. Well, enough writing for tonight. We have to get some sleep for church tomorrow. I love three day weekends!!!
