While Dad's away....Mom will play!

Brad is out of town this week for work. He left on Monday and will be back on Thursday. I can't imagine how much he must miss Cain. Although, I bet he sure is enjoying his uninterrupted sleep at night. We will be so excited to see him again on Thursday.

Thankfully, my mom flew up on Monday to spend the week with us. I wasn't sure if I wanted to be alone so soon after Cain's surgery. We spent part of yesterday cleaning out some of the things in Cain's room that he has already outgrown or doesn't use anymore. I know I'm going to end up saying this a million times...but it's crazy how fast babies grow. It was so sad to fold up and pack away all his cute little newborn outfits but I was running out of clothes hangers and needed more room in his closet.

I was also able to get rid of some of Cain's medical supplies. Doing this brought back many emotions. I will never forget how overwhelmed I felt when we first brought Cain home from the hospital after his first surgery. I never could have imagined how many medical supplies we would have been sent home with. Thankfully, Brad went right to work on organizing everything for us.

The following pictures show some of the supplies we have been given for Cain.

The good news is I cleaned out all the feeding tube supplies and hope to find someone or someplace to give them to. Getting rid of these items really made me realize how far Cain has come in just a few months.

Since Brad was away and couldn't stop mom and I decided we would play 'dress up' with Cain as I was cleaning out his closet. Many of his outfits came with hats. I'm not a big fan of the baby hats so I never put any of them on him. Today we decided to see what they would look like on him. Let me just say after Brad see's what we did to his son while he was away. He may never leave me home alone with Cain and a camera again.

And last but not least.....
