Successful Surgery!

Owen had surgery last Friday. He had a cyst on the back of his earlobe. It was about as big as the tip of my pinky finger. I was a little nervous because he had to be put under anesthesia. It lasted about 45 minutes and then he came out all fussy and confused! The picture above was taken at 6 a.m. and you can't tell that guy hasn't had a bottle since 10:30 p.m. Pat had an interview at work, so my mom tagged along with Owen and I. I was really grateful because she remembered everything and asked all the right questions! I think I was a little uneasy due to Lynlee's last hospital visit.

Here's some pictures of the cyst. Sorry these pictures are blurry because I had to take my flash off. Needless to say he didn't stay as still as you need to when the flash is off!

The hole or pierced-looking thing is some kind of pit that the cyst is attached too. It would puss out really stinky stuff, so that's why we had it removed so early. They didn't want that to get infected, because an infection in the cartilage is really hard to fight (or so they say).

Side view. Really hard to see, but I guess that's what happens when your camera is facing up towards the lights!

He loved all the cords and strings attached to him! It definetly kept him busy.

I don't think any other chubby legs have ever looked so cute in a hospital gown! Hopefully we will not have to see either of our kids in a hospital gown again. Once is enough for the both of them. His ear is looking pretty good now. It is still swollen and a little bruised, but he has really been acting about the same.

That morning was eventful for Owen and I starting at 3 a.m. because he just wanted a bottle! But we both had a few naps and felt refreshed for our out of town guest coming in for the Razorback game!

It was Kimberly's birthday Friday. She wanted a spa day for her birthday SO I just had to tag along. Being a best friend is really hard work people! We went all out with a massage, facial, pedicure, and manicure! Does it get better? By the way...if you want a great facial and massage you need to go to Glo in Fayetteville! They were great!

Goofy, greasy picture but HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIMBERLY!!!

Sister Pains

How does someone's older sibling go from a sweet angel to a crazy daisy in just a matter of months? Here's a small collection of pictures of what all the little man has endured thanks to his sister.

He seriously doesn't have a clue! He's just so excited everyone is paying attention to him! His older girl cousins might of had a hand in this one so Lynlee can't get all the blame!

Just another chew toy to him...not a sparkling princess fairy wand! And don't worry all you good moms, I kept a good eye on him to make sure a princess jewel did not fall off into my little prince's mouth!

So on this day, I thought I had a few seconds to put on my make-up. Everyone was being really quiet (which I'm learning is a bad sign!) so I decided to check on them. Looks like Lynlee found an alternative use for post-its!

Seriously...he has no clue! He didn't even attempt to put up a fight!

I'm starting to worry about when this little guy goes to school. Will the mean bullies just automatically see him as an easy target??

No clue that this could have been a bad idea...

Lynlee also thinks EVERYONE loves hide-n-seek.

And for some crazy reason...he does!

This is what occurs if you ask Lynlee to get Owen a few toys to keep him busy. Once again he loves it!

Slightly concerned, but definitely not complaining because his smart sister figured out the paci will hide almost every cry!

She just loves him so much she wants to squeeze the fire out of him!

I think a cry was about to occur on Owen's part!

Okay, so you can see his polly pocket car and princess horse BUT can you see what he has in his mouth? He seems to think it is a paci, but it isn't. It is a pretend medicine dropper from one of Lynlee's doll doctor kits. And yes it is pink! If Owen gets any where near this toy it goes directly into his mouth and he will suck on it for a good 20 minutes! No Clue.

We will end with Owen's first experience of food! I had it all planned out, but mini mom decided she had everything under control!

I promise NO babies were injured during these events despite what it may look like!

Still Here!

We are still here...I'm really going to have to adjust to this working and blogging thing! I have a ton to say, but not many pictures to support it! Plus, you all definitely do NOT want to hear me talk about my job! At least not at this point.

If you look really closely at Owen's chest you will see a bungee cord. This is now a must when he is swinging on the tire-horse! For some reason my dad thought it would be a great idea to push Owen a little higher while yelling at me to look. So I looked to please him and then turned back around. As I was turning I heard my dad yell "Oh my!" I turned to see Owen's head 2 inches from the ground with my dad holding him by a foot. It could have been really really bad and of course Owen only squeaked in disagreement once! Oh my it is a wonder my brother and I turned out somewhat okay!

Hopefully you all will see me sooner than later!
