Easy as that! and super delicious. Andrew loves them as well. You can find almond flour at trader joes or online. Also if yoi dont have coconut flour or tapioca flour, jist use almond for the whole thing

Andrew and I started out with a quick breakfast

This pancake has 2 eggs, 1 banana, 1/2 scoop protein powder, cinnamon, and PB on top. It was delicious and held off hunger through the gym, and bike ride.

On the way out the door to work on the yard, I ate 2 cheese sticks

“YEA HOO. Its a celebration. Celebrate good times. COME ON!

 theres a party going on right here. A celebration to last throughout the year”

This is how the birthday boy and I started our morning! (well after sprinkle pancakes of course haha)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rewind…..Six years ago…..

I had found out I was having a boy quite early, and I was so excited!

my due date of June 4th came and went…….June 5th. June 6th. June 7th. June 8th.

Each day I woke up READY for this big boy to arrive. I was HUGE!

On Friday June 9th, I had a doctors appointment in the morning. While I was there, my son started having heart rate slowings.

At first they told me if I didnt have my son by Monday, I would be induced then. I thought “ok. Ill go home and get everything finished packed up for the hospital”. Well then they came back in, and told me to head straight to the hospital to be induced. I was like “right now???” haha

After seven hours of being induced ( which wasn’t much fun). A WHOLE group of doctors arrived to inform me that my son’s heart rate slowings were increasing and getting worse. They would have to go in and deliever him by csection, otherwise he wouldnt make it.

Luckily, I had an epidural a few hours before, so I dont remember them telling me this.

At 7:42 my beautiful baby boy was born.

He was 9lbs 6oz!!!!!!

““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““`

That day was such a special day. And I was able to hold him and love on him for the past 6 yrs.

And I have loved every minute of it

…..well except for potty training

I am so thank for this lil fellow in my life. I hope to remember to be thankful each day that I do have him.
