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.

Hanging with Mommy

Mommy and Sax spent the day just the two of us.  Raine went to hang out with Great Great Grandma Betty while Daddy was at work. Saxon woke Mommy up this morning - he stood up in the crib, said "Mommy", then threw his teddy bear at Mommy to wake me up.  Kinda cute!!  We just kinda hung out most of the morning.  After lunch, we went "bar-hopping" - we did the Poker Run in reverse so we could go pick up the donations from the different locations and drop off paperwork for tax deductions.  We got some pretty nice stuff donated!!  Shirts, hats, gift certificates.... even a flag!!  Now we're just hoping for a good turnout!!  The weather is supposed to be nice - about 82 and no rain!  I hope that encourages more people to get out!!!

Even though we were in the car for quite a while, the little man stayed nice and cool with his new haircut!!  He looks like quite the handsome little man!!  The shorter hair should help him stay cooler for the last bit of summer that is left.

We were having a pretty good day, and Saxon only napped for about an hour, but seemed to be in a pretty good mood. Until about 830.  The short nap caught up with him and the resulting tantrums were not pretty!!  He was trying to wedge himself between the love seat and my recliner - and almost got stuck again!!

Daddy's working on getting nebbied and thumped so he can get to bed.  He likes getting high 5's when he's done nebbying.  Hopefully he'll sleep good tonight like he did last night!!  Tomorrow is going to be another "Mommy and Saxy" day while Raine goes to Grandma's again.  Hopefully he'll nap a little more - while we're HOME - so Mommy can get some homework done...  Then Saturday is the big Poker Run day.... Hoping for the best....
