This is Saxon, our energetic little man who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was a week old. We gathered together many friends and family members and created Strides for Sax. Our mission is to raise money and create awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure for cf. This is all about Sax and our team's efforts for the cause. As of the creation of this blog, Saxon is 21 months old, has been hospitalized several times for pneumonia, and had undergone 3 surgeries since his first birthday.

Thumps and Bruises

So the Scrappy man has been keeping us both on our toes.  Craziness going on!!  We think he's going through a growth spurt - he has been sleeping quite a bit - WHEN he sleeps!!  Naps, I believe, are something he is trying to make a thing of the past!!  That is, unless he has his teddy bear!!  He got this one from his sister and auntie during one of his pneumonia stays in the hopital.   This first picture is a little funny cuz it's taken through the side of his packNplay, which is where he naps.  The netting makes it a little difficult to see.  But this IS how he sleeps with his teddy bear!!  He LOVES this bear - and it's almost as big as he is!!

It even goes into his high chair with him when it's time to eat!!

So cute.  They don't say little for long....  We're trying to enjoy the kids as much as we can...  We have to enjoy the time they are healthy to overcome the times they're not...  Which is why I'm also going to start a blog for my little Raine.... But I'm going to let her help me set it up tomorrow....

Now, Saxon has been going through CPT for 22 months now.  Well, he has his own version of CPT....

Mr Monkey Man... all the while yelling "Ahhhhh!!"

At least he's ENJOYING these Thumpies!!!! Not so much when we're doing it.

He's also getting into the habit of taking the thumper from Daddy and trying to thump Daddy with it.... which is really quite the sight!!  Each one with a thumper in hand!!

Today Saxon went to a birthday party with his sister.  He started getting crabby and tired since he hadn't had a nap all day, so I decided it was time to go home.  Raine stayed at the party for a while still.  Sax still wasn't ready (willing) to go down for his nap, so we played on the playset for a while... Well.... When he gets really tired, he has trouble walking.... He loses his balance easily....  He went down the slide a few times, then went running to go up the ladder again, tripped over his own feet, and fell..... and hit his head... on the ladder.....  He had a bruise already on his forehead, and I thought that was where the owie was.... I took him in the house right away and put a cold rag on his face.... On his forehead....  But after he settled down and the redness in the rest of his face faded, I realized he had a bruise developing just above the bridge of his nose between his eyebrows.  I asked him where his owie was, since I didn't actually see him fall... he just rubbed his whole head....  He seems to be ok... hopefully the cold rag kept the bruise from getting too bad.  We will see what the morning brings.

Well, I'm going to sign off now... My goal is to have Raine's site up and running sometime tomorrow.... and to update Saxon's more often!!  And I'll show a pic of his owie tomorrow!!!  Oh, I have another meeting to schedule!!
