Please pray for a little guy that attends our church. He will turn 5 this Saturday and he is battling a brain tumor. It has caused many physical side effects and he is having great difficulty breathing and swallowing. Please lift up his family and siblings. His name is Rance.

10 Months

I can't believe how fast June has gone by! Bryson refused to be still for my monthly photo- so this is all I got!
Here's whats happening at the 10 month mark:
*Bryson LOVES to watch/chase/'pet' Leia. He laughs everytime she runs past him.
* He weights 24 lbs and is 30 inches long. He's in the 90th percentile for everything.
* He really enjoys food- he isn't picky about what he eats. He enjoys table food, and taking a 'drink' from a straw.
* He drinks from a sippy cup now- still taking a bottle for his formula though....
* He's dropped his 4/5pm nap, so some nights he goes down earlier.
* We just wrapped up swim lessons and he LOVED it! He's such a little water baby.
* His bottom 2 teeth are in, and he's cutting his top 2, maybe 4 teeth.
* Still in size 3 diapers, but not for long!
* Still wearing 6-12 month clothing...barely....
* He's pulling up to stand and cruising around the house on whatever he can get his hands on!
He's such a sweet boy- if we could just get his ears to not drain, we'd be good! But, he tolerates all the doctors visits and the daily ear drops so well- it's normal to him now!

First Haircut and other events....

Bryson received his first haircut yesterday! I was slightly more sentimental than I thought I would be- but we both did really well. I provide speech therapy for two kiddos in their home, and their older sister is a hair stylist. So, she came over after speech was completed and cut Bryson's hair.
Here's Bryson before and after:

He was growing a mullet, so the most drastic change is on the back of his head. But, he just wouldn't hold still for that photo!

We've been really busy around the house since Brandon started to rebuild our fence about four weekends ago. Bryson has been missing him- often sitting at the door, watching him work.....

The fence is finally completed and it looks amazing! Its nice to have a privacy fence on all sides now- although I will miss my cute white picket fence :)
