Kinsley's surgery

Kinsley's surgery went well! Her adenoids were big, as expected, so hopefully once she is healed up, we will see some improvement on her breathing and ear infections. She didn't want to wake up from her anesthesia, but after about an hour she finally woke up. There was a baby in recovery beside us that came out after her, but yet went home a good hour before us. My little beauty needed her rest. We had a rough evening Friday, and a bad day Saturday. I think her throat is sore. Today, she hasn't been as irratable, but still not wanting to eat. Hopefully soon she will be back to normal! Thanks for all your prayers

Prayer Request

Miss Kinsley will be going in the morning for her adenoidectomy. Pray all goes well and it will help with ear infections, breathing, and to just stay well for a while.

Nights like these

It's 1:30 in the morning and I'm sitting here wide awake hoping this horrible thunderstorm passes soon. I DO NOT like storms and these are the moments when I wish Shane was here. For some reason, having someone else with you makes it not so scary. LOL! I guess I'm just a big baby. I just don't do high winds, thunder, lighting, to top it all off hail hitting the windows. I remember as a child, my brother and I would go into our parents room, and sleep in the floor by their bed when it was storming. Thankfull right now my girls are still asleep. Hopefully they stay that way so we don't have 3 scaredy cat girls sitting here in the bed.

Day 1 of no rocking...SUCCESS!!

I have been pondering the thought for some time now, but tonight I made the decision to put Kinsley is her crib to fall asleep. Rocking has worked great for us up until the last couple of months. She has really started fighting sleeping, fighting me and just having a fit when it came time to rock to sleep. I would fight her her sometimes an hour before she finally gave it up. Tonight was no different! I told myself tonight, "this is just ridicuolos sitting here fighting my 17 month old for an hour". So I went and put her in the crib. Tonight I stood right by her crib, singing to her and rubbing her back and face, and laying her back down when she got up. Of course, she cried, but not as long as I expected. It took about 20 mins. and she was out. Hopefully tomorrow will be shorter, and adentually I will be able to just lay her down and go out of the room. No turning back now:)
