This past week we celebrated Tucker's big second birthday! As I mentioned before, this was a huge celebration given all this poor baby has been through in the past year! Monday was his actual birthday so we started the day with the traditional birthday donut, then I took him to the mall for a carousel ride, chick fil a and a present from the Disney store. When Carl got home we had dinner and went for some birthday ice cream. It was a great day!

Wednesday tucker had his third endoscopy procedure. The worst part is the nothing to eat or drink after midnight. Poor guy cried most of the way in to the hospital because he was hungry! All in all the procedure went well. He has been doing so well that I was expecting to hear that his inflammation (in his duodenum) was much better. However, the doctor revealed to us that it was actually worse and that now he has ulcers and more redness and irritation in new places in and around his stomach. This is all new. We won't know much more until the paths come back. Talk about 1 step forward 2 steps back. Hopefully we will know more on Monday. Other than that, he came out of anesthesia quick and was back to normal in no time:) they were also able to draw his blood to use for his whole xsome test, while he was under anesthesia. Carl and I had to go back in on Thursday to sign a whole bunch of paper work and give blood to be sent with Tucker's. This test will take about 4-6 months to get back, but we are hoping it will provide us with some answers. After Carl and I got our blood drawn, tucker clapped for us and said "yay mama and dada"! Poor guy is so used to it being him and that is how we react to him. Bless his heart!

Friday we had to go in for Tucker's 2 year well check. All went well and luckily we were up to date on our shots so tucker didn't have to get any!! I was so relieved! Our pediatrician's office is so great and they were all excited to see tucker and see how well he is doing. We are so blessed with a great doctor and staff. So it was quite a week!! We are looking forward to some down time and celebrating thanksgiving:) we start our celebrations tonight with the Schindewolf family! Carl is frying his first turkey, we'll see how it goes;)

Last night we took the boys to see Santa. They were both so excited, until it was time! Tripp was ok but tucker would not have it! He wouldn't even sit on his lap as you will see below;) oh well! It was a fun family night:)
