What a whirlwind of a day we had today.  Having school then hair appt and rushing off to make it to take senior pics on time about made me crazy today.  Alex's latest and greatest obsession is "movie quotes".... everything he says is a movie quote.  I can't remember 5 minutes ago let alone movie quotes from every movie we have ever seen!  He is hilarious and most men can relate to him and they can go back and forth quote for quote.  He was a reeling movie line today at Fran's Salon.  What's funny is he laughs at himself, lol... too cute!  Anywho... once out of the hair salon... onto Prestige to get his senior picture for the ED WHITE yearbook taken and picked out.  ALOT harder than I imagined... getting his now "larger" torso into a tux shirt and jacket in a wheel chair....aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh.  4 jackets later we got it all figured out.... got the bow tie snapped.... trach hidden and onto take the picture.  MR GQ kept wanting to pose James Bond style...hahahahaha.  We got her to take a picture of him in that pose and then once he saw it he was like..."yeah...that;s the one I want for my yearbook picture"...hahahaha..NOT!

This is the photo he would choose if he had his way, lol.... however this is the photo we went with for the yearbook below:

God forbid he take a picture where he wasn't posing right!!!  He was a hotmess!!!  

THIS IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!  Not a forced smile but a handsome natural gorgeous SMILE!
THANK YOU GOD for making it possible for us to get to this point of our journey.
