a rough morning

Ella had tubes put in her ears early this morning. Her doctor told me he'd take the blame for about 30 minutes of crankiness post surgery. I'm blaming him for about 5 hours of pitifulness. She did not fall asleep on the way home like he expected her to. She did not take a good nap this morning, but instead alternated between light, restless sleep and inconsolable crying. I finally got a little juice in her around noon, when this picture was taken. We had 30 pretty good minutes before the crying started up again. Thankfully, she had a good afternoon nap and was feeling great tonight. So great that she really enjoyed repeatedly trying to put her toy lipstick tube up her nose. How's that for feminine? I'm very thankful that today is behind us...

Poor baby. I am sure that was hard for both of you. I am glad she got a good nap and hope that she on the road to recovery!

Hi Kristin. Don't know if you will remember me or not but I found your blog on Amanda Gunn's blog. I went to AR school with Jonathan.

The three kids are just adorable. Ella looks alot like her daddy! I'm looking forward to keeping up with all of you. I'm excited that I found you. Tell Jonathan I said hello.

I didn't know little boo had tubes put in her ears. What a big girl she is becoming. I absolutely love the boys' self portraits. I want copies to put on my wall. Our kiddos are getting big, too. Except that 95% of Ian's vocabulary still consists of "uh oh" so sometimes I forget that he is indeed nearly 19 months old. We miss you all so much. I just cried and cried tonight looking at your blog. I pray that you will be able to come visit soon.....
