On Friday Charis had tubes put in her ears and her adenoids out. We went to the ENT on Monday and he had an opening for Friday and we took it. I am so happy that she had this done. I really pray it helps her to breathe, sleep, eat, and be happy.
She did great! We got her up early and had her at the surgery center by 6:45 AM. She waited in the waiting room for a long time and was a trooper. She got nose drops that made her a little loopy before they took her back. The whole procedure was over in 25 mins. She did great coming out of anesthesia. She drank juice and slept.
She had a hard day when we got home. Thankfully, my mom had Drew and I could just hold Charis all day. She snoozed off and on but she had quite a bit of pain and couldn't lie down on her own. She got some gifts for her big surgery. Our wonderful church gave her two books, my mom gave her a stuffed animal, Stephen bought her a book, and the nurse gave her a stuffed animal. She has played well since the surgery but, still hasn't eaten much.

Good Cake

My Dad's birthday was Sunday (the same day as Ronald Reagan's bday- my Dad loves that) and we had him over for lunch. It was great to see him and he read Charis a bunch of books. He left his cake and so I gave the kids a little bit with dinner because they hadn't had any since their birthday. Drew had it all over him and I asked him "Is it good cake?". Charis started trying to say "good cake" after that and it was hilarious. She says it best at the end of the video. Aunt Lauren was there and we were laughing so hard. This may be one of those "you had to be there" moments but, I wanted to save the memory.

Shout out to Drew

I want to give a shout out to my boy, Drew, for the great party he threw until 3 AM last night and then for the "after party" at 6AM. I had fun eating yogurt, playing, and singing every song I know with you.

My poor son a had a bad cough that woke him up just as we were going to bed. Once he was awake he was wired! I had never seen him so hyper. We played in the living room until he conked out at 3AM. I am not going to lie it was frustrating and I was super tired but, it was nice to have some time with just him. If I could choose I would have chosen 3PM, not AM but it was great to play and cuddle with my sweet boy.
Because they go from this to a big boy so fast...
