Braxton is 5 & I am.........................

This week has been filled with so much fun!  Braxton is a lover of life, he has loved having this be his Birthday week & he shared with me a little!  All week he has been saying to the other kids,"Don't do that its my Birthday" about anything that bothers him.  I know I talked a little about when he was born in a post a while back, but I'm going to again because he is such a little miracle! On the night of February 8th 2006 I wasn't feeling well, but only being 27 weeks along I figured it wasn't a big deal and I would just sleep it off.  The next morning I was in so much pain I could hardly even stand, so we called my midwife and asked what they wanted us to do. They told us to head to the nearest ER immediately.  When we got to the hospital I felt a gush of fluid thinking my water had broke I was so worried, well it hadn't but worse, I was bleeding ALOT!  Life flight was called, they checked me & I was dilated to a 7.  The whole time on life flight I kept praying that we would make it to Salt Lake because if not I didn't think this little man was going to make it!  We arrived in Salt Lake they hurried and put me under so they could deliver our little miracle baby.  He was born on 2/9/2006 at 2:59 PM weighing in at 2 lbs. 13 oz. & 17 inches, he was a BIG CHUNK!!! The next 8 weeks were a roller coaster, but we survived and 5 years later are so thankful that we get to be the parents of this little miracle boy!!!
To celebrate Braxton's Birthday & mine Mike took the day off and we headed to the city for 24 hours of fun!  Mike asked if I wanted to go out to a fancy restaurant & I said yes Olive Garden!  After a 45 minute wait, which ended up not being to bad the whole time everyone was googling over little miss celebrity MaCee we finally sat down and enjoyed a DELICIOUS meal!!!  That night we stayed and the Staybridge Inn & Suites in Salt Lake it was a blast if you get a chance take your kids.  They have a water park that is PERFECT for our kids age!  The next day was a blast Incredible Pizza Company, Frogurt, Costa Vida (my favorite) and the best part lots of fun times with my little family!!! Now for the fun part of this... How old am I bahahaha you'll never know!!! :)
Thanks to everyone for making our Birthdays so special!!!


  1. What a little sweetheart! Glad you guys had a fabulous birthday! BUT-- we are way too young for you to be embarrassed to admit our age! Ah! When did we get so old?!?

  2. Oh Braxton was so so tiny. Your right, he is a little miracle baby. What a sweetheart. It looks like you guys had a wonderful weekend. That picture of MaCee being pulled by her pants cracks me up! TOO FUNNY!
