This one's for the record books....

(His anyways)


Tonight, before Emma Claire's soccer game and my tennis match, I took the children to McDonalds for a healthy pregame meal!!!! I kept Henderson in his bucket seat, just to be safe, and we ordered our food and ate. That little guy pictured above, was an ANGEL!!!!! He sat in his chair the ENTIRE time, did not get up even once. He hardly even said a word and he ate 2 WHOLE nuggets (and some french fries to boot)!!!!! I couldn't believe it myself - he's never EVER EVER EVER eaten that much meat in one sitting!!!! And to stay in his seat (right beside me) the WHOLE time - it was a miracle I tell you, sent straight from God above.




And this little guy, is the sweetest, most loving, happy little man I know. He just lights up every time I look at him and I know he loves me so much and I love him equally. He is growing like a weed - hard to believe his first birthday is just around the corner. SLOW DOWN TIME!!!!!


I know it's hard to tell from pictures, but if you look back at some old pictures of Henderson (okay here is a good one - see below, taken about a week earlier), you will see that he has a PERFECTLY round head. The squishy soft spot is now 11 cm x 12 cm on the right side of his head (your left) - it was 8 x 8 cm last Wednesday when it first popped up. The neurosurgeon was not at all concerned and the Pediatrician (who was concerned in the beginning) was happy to hear what the Neuro had to say and told me she's seen them take over a month to go away. There is no going down in sight here - does anyone know anymore about this out there? I would love any encouragment or advice you can give!!!! He acts PERFECTLY normal - eats good, sleeps good, plays hard, has great balance, happy 99% of the time - but it is HUGE (and squishy, remember??? - so gross)!!!!!!








Emma Claire's soccer team played great - they had a little more competition this time, I even heard that Emma Claire pushed a little boy that was in her way (this happened in the last few minutes of the game, after I had left to go to my tennis match) - she's a fiesty little thing - but I had a talk with her about good sportmanship and playing hard, but being kind. Happy Wednesday to everyone and don't forget to pray for baby Stellan.

I think that his squishy little cute head will be just fine. It will probably take what seems like forever to get back to normal, but it sounds like he is his usual fun self!

I just found your blog through Kellys Korner Blog. Just wanted to let you know that even though we live in Oklahoma - our boxer's name is Allie - short for Alabama Tide! Roll tide!

oh my goodness, I had to look twice b/c the last picture of Henderson looks just like EC as a baby! Do you think so?
