Caleb recently lost his 2nd top tooth. After he lost the first one, I told him that since he was my last one to lose their two top teeth he had better get the other one out. I just couldn't be happy if I didn't get to have a 1st grader with TWO missing teeth at the same time. Seems most of my kids have lost one, the other one grew in half way and then the second one fell out. This little boy, wanting to make his (joking!!) mommy happy, wiggled and wiggled it until it fell out. PRECIOUS!!!
This 15 year old boy is, Brenden. He is my first born (by only a minute. Braden will not let you forget that!) He has struggled with his health for many years and we finally found a diagnosis when he was 11.5 years old. Double Aortic Arch. He had surgery on August 22, 2005 to correct this congenital birth defect and is doing very well. He still seems to have a mild form of tracheomalacia, but has never had to have anything done about it. Hopefully it will continue to get stronger and he'll suffer no adverse effects from the severely delayed diagnosis. He also stuggles with finding a balance between education and social life. Again...God willing.... We are raising men, not friends.
These are my guys! I love them so very much.
