We just got around to celebrating Father's day today. I was in Minnesota with my mom for the actual day but don't you fret...his mom spoiled him rotten. I gave him a gift that day but wanted to make him a special dinner and his favorite cake and treat him like a king. Happy Father's Day!!!!!!
PS- His favorite cake is a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting that Emily posted on the Jewkes Family recipe blog (look to the left for link). It is so delicious.

I have so much to blog about....but for now....here is this.
My sweet sweet angel Quincy who now loves to sit up while he bathes and loves to splash around. He doesn't even mind getting water in his eyes which shockingly my 4 and 5 year old think is the END.OF.THE.WORLD.
This past week my mom, Quincy, and I journeyed to Minnesota so my mom could get a cochlear implant. First let me just say that the weather was so pleasant i didn't want to come back. Last time I was there it was February and the weather was arctic. This was perfect- mid 70's and 80's. SO nice. On to more important things....Mom got her implant on Friday. The actual surgery went really well. A rather small incision behind her ear. They put an implant in her ear that extends out to a magnet that is behind her ear in between the skull and muscle. We focused on healing from that for a couple days. This picture is the day of the surgery. Have you even seen someone so beautiful right off of the operating table? Mom is so graceful and beautiful. SO then on Monday and Tuesday we had appointments that programmed the trasmitter that connects on the outside of her head. Mom is so brave to go on this journey. She essentially has to learn to hear all over again because the sounds are very different. What a task!
