Its Great to be Eight!!!

Or at least we are about to find out!


Eight years ago today, I was supposed to be heading to my baby shower. Instead, my water broke early in the morning and off to the hospital we went. We arrived at about 9:30 am and at 10:25 am our little 5 lb. 5.6 oz baby boy was born. He was almost 3 weeks early, but perfect. Dylan Walker Aldrich entered the world and totally transformed us from Garth and Lynita to Dad and Mom. He made us parents and for that we are thankful. We love watching him grow and mature. He is all "BOY" and constantly on the move. He is loving and a pleaser. He is tenderhearted, but everything extreme. He loves me, but absolutely adores his dad. He is a
Daddy's boy 100%. God knew we needed him and he needed us. We wouldn't be complete without him. We are so blessed to call him our son.

Dylan age 4

We celebrated his birthday with a few buddies from school on Friday night. Dylan had a Star Wars party complete with pizza, cupcakes, a pinata, and glow sticks. He had a great time having his friends over and hanging out. Garth was a trooper and played football with the kids and at dusk took them out for the glow stick fun.
Today he gets to share some Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches with his class and then gets out a bit early for an exciting........ wait for it........ well-check appointment and flu shot. Yes, I rock as a mom. We're playing it up that he gets out of school early and then off for some ice cream or something special when we are done.
