Who wants to be “normal” anyway?

Sorry it has been so long! Time flies when you’re having fun. It also flies when you’re a mom and you’ve mastered making peanut butter toast, brushing your teeth, and holding your child, all at the same time.

Okay, onto Dillon..

He just turned a year old on the 12th. I can’t believe it has already been a year!

We made it 11 months with zero surgeries (I say 11 months because he had his back closure at one day old and his shunt placed at one month old). I occasionally find myself wondering what I did to deserve so many miracles, but then I realize, this isn’t about me. God has a plan for Dillon.

We did have two shunt scares, but in the end it was just me being paranoid. Though, better safe than sorry!

Orthopedics saw him recently (on the 13th) and did not mention whether or not he would need braces. The doctor who saw him said something along the lines of Dillon just being like a normal kid. I disagree, he’s pretty weird.

I mean just look at him hanging out in the floor with his leg up in the air.

But he’s awesome. PS – All the greatest people in the world are a little weird. Anyway, here are a few more pictures to just prove to you how awesome he is.

Eating habits are obviously healthy. He stuffs his face every chance he gets.

He loves food sooo much.

My two favorite guys, sharing a bowl of cereal. I'd like to add that Lance looks dirty because he just got off work. I assure you he bathes daily.

I caught him sleeping on his back, but when I went in his room to take a picture he woke up.

I think he was watching Blues Clues. He never just sits and watches TV so I had to take a picture.

Attempting to escape bath time. I'm not sure why, because usually he refuses to get out of the tub.
