August 2010- 1 year old!
August 2011- 2 years old!!
Happy Birthday, Elias James! We adore you more than anything in the world!! You have the most amazing personality and sweet spirit. We love watching the little man you're becoming! Love you to pieces, Bubba :)
Our caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly this morning! We were able to let him go and watch him fly away. It's one of my favorite things to do with these kids- watch the cycle of a monarch. So fun!!
Addie's surgery last week went terrific! And her recovery has been better than I expected. She's eating a lot of ice cream, yogurt, and noodles. I think one day she had 3 ice cream bars :) She's definitely exhausted still and not acting like herself yet, but getting there! Today she's been singing all day long again, so that's a great sign. Her voice must sound funny to her (they told me she'd sound different), because now she's talking in a high baby voice and it's obnoxious! I asked her why she's talking that way and she said, "Mom, this is just how my voice sounds now." AHHH!! I hope not!
Thanks for your prayers-- we definitely have felt them this past week!!
Just a couple updated pictures :) Loving being home and being a mama. We've crammed-packed this week on purpose to keep us busy and keep our minds off Addie's surgery this Friday- tonsils, adenoids, and draining ears. She's doing great and has a good attitude about it. I am a little bit on the anxious side about it all. So prayers this Friday would be greatly appreciated! You never want your child to have to go under, and that's what I'm worried about most- not the surgery or recovery, but just the going under and coming back out part. Not much else--I'm about 11 weeks along now and feeling much better. Just very hungry still and craving milk, bread, and anything salty. Very healthy, I know!! I'll let you know how the surgery goes this weekend.
