A Mitchell Update!!!

I thought that lots of things have been going on other than Easter so I would post another blog that is full of everything!!! Lets start by telling you that Baker went to his First Rattlesnake Rodeo with his daddy!!! Derek said he did good but wasn't loving the sun being so bright. And everyone kept telling Derek that his nose was running (it always is running)
Also, Baker got his new big boy car seat!! He loves having the room! But we have to watch and make sure his head doesn't bounce in there. We got a lime green one because that is the color for muscular dystrophy... Baker has a form or MD. Baker's is called Myotubular Myopathy. (We hope to do a fund raiser during the summer to help fund research for different types of MD.)This next picture is just one of my favorite pictures... Derek is of course on the xbox, but this time he is holding Baker. Baker is loving it. He kept saying "Dadadadada" to get Derek's attention.This next picture is a funny story... I was holding Baker on evening and he saw a white stick sticking out of my mouth and kept trying to grab it until finally he ripped it right out of my mouth... and stuck it in his. Now Baker doesn't eat from his mouth so it was funny because he wouldn't let me take it away from him!!! We got video as well!!! These next few pictures are from Home Vent clinic... In Birmingham at Children's. This is the longest clinic and we get bored. So we have to pack lots of things and toys to keep Baker occupied. Luckily there is a tv in the room and I took this why he was watching cartoons!!!
This is a recent picture of Derek and I... well before Derek cut his hair and his beard... Now he doesn't look like a wooly booger!!! : )Notice in this one that Baker is still watching TV... I couldn't get his attention to take the picture!
After the Clinic visit we stopped to see Uncle Don and Aunt Val. I was hoping that everyone else would be there as well! I have missed them since we have been home. They became like close family! This is Natalie... She has grow SO much!!! She even gave Derek a kiss good bye this time even though he still had a beard!! (Long Story) And this is her little Brother Bentley! This was the first time that we got to see him. He was born about the time that we were getting ready to go home.
Well That is about it for right now!!! But be looking for more! Baker is about to have his First Birthday! I just can't believe it! The doctors can't either!!! He have overcome so much in his life! We love him Dearly!!!! But his party should be lots of fun!!! So check back!!!


Well Baker's first Easter was an over all Great Day... nevertheless an exhausting day... We had places to be and people/family to see... It started off with a Bath and he loves bath time...

Then he had to see what the Easter Bunny brought him and look at his eggs... Also is a picture of his outfit... I never got a great shot with him wearing it!

Then we loaded up and off we went to Church... This next picture is a picture of Baker in his car seat wearing his bunny ears... I think he looks adorable... but his daddy doesn't like them at all!!
After church we went to Aunt Mary Anne's to eat and watched the kids play baseball in the field. Then we went to Derek's family... and it was HOT!!!! We had to find shade and I had to get him out of the stroller because he was sweating so... he started out on my lap...
Then we ended up on the ground... it was much cooler and he had fun with cousin Lexie!!!
Then we headed off to Brewton Alabama for Easter with my other side of the family... I didn't get any pictures there... sorry!!! But over all Easter was a fun day! I hope that Baker will enjoy it next year more!!!
